March – Technical Shoot - Soft Focus
• What we'll do Soft Focus is not “out of focus”. Soft Focus (typically done with filters) lends a dreamy quality to an image with a bit of a loss in contrast. You will see it most commonly in portraits. In fact, I’m hoping to coordinate this topic to follow a planned portrait shoot where we can experiment with this technique. You can buy a filter that will do this or you can use a piece of nylon stocking. You can get black stockings for a few dollars if your wife doesn’t have any she wants to give up. Or, since you only need about a six inch square, you can probably get together with other people and get six or eight filters out of a pair. Other categories for March will be Open and Out of the Box • What to bring • Important to know Here are some articles about soft focus, techniques and how to use the stocking filter:

What we're about

Public Group

Northwest Houston Photo Club Meet Up is somewhat unique in the Houston area. It is a combination of a brick and mortar camera club with a meet up online community. It offers not only a vast accumulation of photographic knowledge to be shared with new photographers but also the flexibility anticipated through the use of the Internet. It offers the more traditional avenues of getting your photographs seen and critiqued as well as an online gallery for posting and commenting.

There are no dues for the ONLINE membership however for those that wish to become part of a more structured brick and mortar camera club there are some definite advantages to being a PAID member. That is all explained in the PAGES tab above. There is already a year’s worth of outings in place in addition to a year’s worth of monthly competitions.

I just want to say thank you for taking the time to browse our site and to let you know that you are welcome at both the monthly shoots as well as at the two monthly meetings. We will do our best to make your interest justified. Look forward to meeting you.
