Monthly Meeting and Presentation on Thursday (3rd Thursday this month!)

  • Jun 20, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please park in the lot with the shopping center and walk across the circle to the club house. Parking is very limited at the club house. The meeting will be held in the movie theater in the club house, which is to the right of the front entrance, through the internet cafe.

The door locks automatically. If the door does not open right away, knock, and the door will be opened unto you. :)

 

 

Ken will cover information on entering various photography contests including the state fair and other local fairs. (Thank you, Ken!) Bring some work (either digital or printed) to share with the group. Also, for some of this information you might want to bring some materials for taking notes: pen and paper, a tablet, whatever you need.

 

You may also bring shots that you would like critiqued. Maybe you have a photo that just didn't turn out the way you were hoping, and you'd like suggestions on how to make it better. Bring those, too. We're happy to help!

    I love nature photography, and would like to learn how to take a good picture.
    I have a Canon T2i

      I hope what we did last night helped you learn a little bit. The biggest tip I can give you is read your manual an learn your camera inside and out. Practice, practice, practice!

      Yelp, Katie is right. Had a friend tell me the same thing. So that's what I do. I also look on You Tube, for my kind of camera which is Cannon Rebel T3..Learning a lot. Johnsely if you want to meet up sometime, we can take some photos together. Nancy and I are always going some where for photo shoots. I am still new to learning defiantly not an expert, but love to take photos... miles of smiles.....

    Highly enjoyed meeting all at the meeting. While we missed the planned presentation, the meeting was very well organized and a look forward to sharing in future meetings.

    This will be my first meeting tonight. Am I required to bring some shots to share? I haven't taken many shots that I'm proud of recently. :)

      I don't remember your RSVP. Also, I did not see you there. Anyway, at our monthly meetings, you are generally asked to bring some photos to share either printed or digitally. This is not required, but is a nice way to share with the group.

    Unfortunately my work schedule changed at the last minute and I will not be able to attend. I was looking forward to it but I'll try next month. Thank you.

      We'll see you next month, then.

    Since Ken was a "NO SHOW" and we had to fill-in with other stuff, all went great.

    I have a conflict on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

      It's usually the second Tuesday. This month is different because of the end of the school year.

    Is it ok to bring digital images rather than prints for critiquing? I have a lot to learn!

    I am totally new at Photography. I just got a Cannon T3 and I have been just learning by reading the manual and watching some videos on the web, and of course, taking shoots everywhere. I would love to learn from all of you, and to really have friendly people to guide me through my new hobby. :-)

      Those are EXCELLENT ways to learn! Also check out Bryan Peterson's _Understanding Exposure_.
