    What is the topic to shoot for July?

    June 14, 2014

    • Tammy M.

      Carol yes it will be the same time. If this is the location we choose will all meet at the 100 Center

      June 18, 2014

    • Ted

      Yes husbands are ok but I may be biased. Sounds like the 100 center with a back up plan for Tammy's park and island, neither of which I have seen. I am not much on the nature stuff but whenever we go out, people are there.

    Good pictures. Fun group. Nice shoot. Life is good.

      I missed June, but got some good shots in South Dakota- mostly of bison. Can that be the topic of shots for July (just kidding)? I'll post some in the Miscellaneous folder.

      1 · June 18, 2014

    • Tammy M.

      Theresa love the bison pics. woke this morning thinking of the one I commented on. If we had a topic in July you would win the BMW. Btw Ted brought bmw's this time;)

    I may not be able to join the group tonight. In case you discuss the Silverhawks game...I'm in!

    June 12, 2014

    • Dawn R.

      Hang in Ted. "This too shall pass." :)

      Was a good meeting. We are off to shoot.

    I spoke with an official at the South Bend Silverhawks (Baseball team, for those in Rio Linda) today to see if we could shoot one of their games. He said we could, but we have to nail down specifics ... How many people would want to shoot, what game (he said a Friday night game which is cool because they have fireworks after the game.) I'll talk about it more at the June meeting.

      Thanks Karen! Sounds like this will be a very fun event!

    Hi group. I am sorry to say that I have banned two new members. If you have issues with this, please have it with me and not bring further disruption to the group. I am sure there are many opinions to be shared. Let's not do so in the group. If you click on me in members I believe it gives you the option to email me direct. This is sad because we will not have the opportunity to meet them and gain from their experience. Thursday we show and critique the "Spring" picture. Hopefully someone will bring an idea for a shoot and a map. If it is the groups favorite, we'll go there. I will facilitate the meeting, then go be a photographer.

      I will have to leave at 6:30. Will this cause any problems?

    Ted, or anybody interested in making a tripych photo, here is a link to Gavin Hoey's tutorial...

      Thank you Kim! I may have to learn photoshop after all!

      June 8, 2014

    • Dawn R.

      Photoshop and Lightroom are good programs to know in this techno age.

    So, reading my last few posts upside down is going to be confusing. Sorry. A member emailed me and asked me to resolve this unruly issue. So I wasted a lot of time typing and a lot more of members time reading. For basically no gain or photographic improvement at all. So no, I don't think we need to discuss this issue at the meeting. Let's discuss photos, and then go shoot. I was not planning on being at this meeting (and therefore have no pictures to get critiqued!) Now it looks like I might come just for the joy of losing my temper. If I am not there, please have fun, enjoy everyones pictures and then find someplace to go shoot! If I am there, how about we don't expect me to find a shoot? Maybe someone will bring their kids to shoot(I have really enjoyed some of the family stuff we have done). It is also a good time to need some pictures for one reason or another. You have a bunch of creative, gifted people around you hungry to make images. Have a good time Thursday.

      You are welcome. There really are few rules. But having fun should be one of them. Anything else we can leave home. Sorry for the delay in getting involved. I was not seeing the thread replys posted.

      June 9, 2014

    • Thomas Z.

      Rules ehhh, lol. As a side note for the rest. Words have no meaning unless the recipient gives them meaning. What I've always found interesting is how society believes others can make them feel. That is a social myth. It's your thinking that creates feelings. Funny how many of the conflicts are born from a myth. hmmm :)

    The question came up about meeting places. We generally (especially in the winter!) meet at Gene's. Sometimes (like this coming Thursday) we bring pictures on a flash drive and we review, critique and generally make positive comments about other peoples shots. But we don't always. This week is "Spring". Then we try to go out and shoot. Because this locks us into the South Bend area, sometimes we meet somewhere else. The message board may be the only clue to where that is. As a side note, when I am there and if I can, I hustle us out of Gene's (he can't lock up until we are gone) as fast as I can. It is not unusual for someone to be five minutes late and miss the shoot. I am very conscious that in a group, wasted time is the multiplication of the number of people involved times the number of minutes wasted. I respect those who come and try not to waste their time. Our members are usually pretty good at that too. Hopefully that is what you are looking for in a group.

    June 8, 2014

  • Ted

    So new members, wouldn't it be wise to come to a group first before you raise issues? Please don't use this forum to discuss any thing other than photography. We go out and shoot. We'd love to have you shoot with us. It really is that simple. If that stresses you, this group may not be for you. I personally love people. And I enjoy being with others who love people. But anyone that can only say "no" or explain where the other person is wrong, is going to waste time. That to me is where we need to draw the line. So if this offends you, don't reply. Just get out. If you want to be with people that love to shoot pictures, we'd love to have you join us.

    Wow, for some reaon, since I made Natalie co-organizer, I am not getting notices when you guys post. From all the bickering, I thought this was a blog or something. For tonight, for those of you who asked, I am in charge. So here's some guidance. Bring kids, bring dogs, bring spouses. IF you bring yourself, come prepared to enjoy yourself and make it a priority to treat others with respect. If that feels off, get out of the group now. We meet at Gene's because it is a wonderful place for camera people. No, Jack is not responsible for our behavior. Judging from this thread, I'll bet he is glad. But know this, if anyone is even slightly disrespectful to his property, his person, of his sponsorship, I will take it personally. So please don't. I have been with this group a very long time and I would hate to throw myself out. And believe me, my behavoir under those circumstances would warrant my expulsion.

    Can't make the June meeting-- I'll be taking pictures in South Dakota. Thanks Larry DeLaruelle for showing me your pictures!!

  • Teresa S.

    so sorry to post this here, but I can never figure out how to put something on the discussion board. I would love to try to shoot the comet tonight-- can someone advise of the settings to do so; or tips? Thanks.
