November 14th Meeting

 

Hi Everyone:

As is now our regular routine, we will take the first 20 minutes or so for general photography questions.

This will be followed by the description listed below:

The November presentation will be on "getting published" by Kurt Hertzog. It will cover a host of different facets of the publishing business including: getting "found"; what to look for in contracts (and what to look out for); shooting for publication; how to deal with art departments; lead times; payment schedules; and more. If you hope to have your work in print, join the session to find out the good, the bad, and the ugly about the world of printing and publishing.

Following Kurt's presentation, if time permits, John Esposito will conclude his discussion on copyright protection of your photography.

Several of you have requested some information on proper technique for winter shooting with particular concern for snow scenes .. if time permits I will offer several simple techniques for dealing with snow photography .. if not, we can tackle the subject in our December meetup. Also in December, as you requested, I (with a model's help) will demonstrate basic portrait & lighting photography utilizing fairly simple equipment.

Hope to see you at the November meetup .. until then .. as always .. HAPPY SHOOTING ... Ron

    Although I probably will not use the information provided by Kurt, he was a fabulous presentator, kept things moving quickly along, information presented was understandable and he just has a knack for keeping the audience interested. Good Job ! With that said, I was hoping for some insight on Stock Photography tips, so if anyone is actually making $$ with stock, that might be a good topic for a future meeting.

      Hello Rita-Marie. There are two basic types of stock photography. . First is the traditional where photos sell to pubishers, calander companies, greeting card companies and others like them. They are harder to break into, but pay better. The other is micro-stock companies. After you get approved by them you csn upload your photos. These usually pay less and you make your money by high volume sales. If you would like more information abour either one post here or email me. When I get home I can send you some information.

      Thank you Michael and I will send you and email. Actually two years ago someone told me to contact a particular greeting card company (other since then) and I haven't done that yet...so this has been a goal that sitting on back burner. I have been working on a few different calendars that want to do. I have a few people waiting for me to do a calendar. Your guidance will be helpful. I am grateful I join this group. Gain much in a little over a month

    I've had some success shooting tourist attractions in the Adirondacks, and selling matted prints on consignment in the site gift shop.

      interesting, on consignment; did you need UPC bar code. I know some place around town I would like to put both matted prints, matted framed pictures and mostly the photo note cards however I am told I need UPC on them so they can scan them. I wam working on that for next year. Therre are a few other places people told me about in the last couple of weeks that I have to check into

    A suggestion for a future meeting, inspired by the few flakes in the air this morning. How about a tutorial on taking photographs when there is a super abundance of that white stuff on the ground. What shutter speed, aperature, etc. should we use esp. when the sky is gray, or perhaps there might even be some sun. Yes, I know, this is Rochester
