Utah Photography and Photoshop Meetup

Hello Everyone!

Now that the dust has settled from the holidays, we are happy to announce that our speaker for the next meetup is Royce Bair.

 

Royce Bair has been a professional illustrative photographer and an international lecturer for over three decades. His photos have been used by corporations like General Motors and IBM, and published in magazines ranging from the Smithsonian to National Geographic. During this same period, he has built and sold five photo-related businesses. In the past two years, he has embarked on a new adventure of sleepless nights, as he attempts to photograph the night sky in a style he calls, "NightScapes". Royce and his wife, Linda, are the parents of five children.

Star Filled Night Photography" or "NightScapes" are single exposures of the starry night sky that include a recognizable landscape feature. These can be captured by anyone with a DSLR. Royce will discuss the basic equipment requirements and the natural conditions needed to capture "NightScapes", as well as how to overcome some of the challenges in this type of night photography. Light painting and how to use natural light to enhance landscape features will also be demonstrated.

    It was very good. It was great talking with someone who is a leader in this particular area.

    Great event. Lots of good information. Went home after the meetup, got my camera out and did some light painting. So I guess I was inspired.

    Had to leave early, but I thought I was going to learn HOW to shoot those night shots, but the first hour was "here's 40 completely unrelated pics, here's two nightscapes, here's 40 more unrelated pics, here's when to go take the shots... Great guy and beautiful pics, but I hoped I'd learn more on the first 2/3 of the event. He very well could have gone into more detail after I left, but 60 min of show and tell and 30 min of teaching even sounds a bit odd.

    Outstanding discussion. I am an insignificant photographer compared to Royce. Much to learn...

      Lisa, I got a reply to my email about switching with someone who can't make it. Do I need up tell you who, or just show up?

    We actually are full for the meetup on Wednesday. You can try showing up and seeing if there is any room. It might be standing room only though. Sorry, we have over 100 people confirmed.

    Just a notebook and pen are fine.

    I just joined this group, and missed the RSVP for Wednesday's meetup. I'm definitely interested, and it's actually the reason I joined. Is there any way to get in on it still? Myself +1? Thanks for your help!

    I have Photoshop on our computer, but haven't had the time to explore it to the fullest. This should be a big help in speeding things up.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
