March 12th Meeting

NOTICE: There seems to be some confusion regarding B&N being closed due to inventory. They are closed ONLY until 2pm BUT WILL REOPEN from 2 pm through the normal 9 PM .. so please disregard any misleading messages regarding closure. I have a call in to the manager to verify. If I hear different I will send out an email update .. until then .. WE ARE STILL ON FOR OUR MEETUP TONIGHT !!!

Some of our members, both on this website & in person at the last meetup, have requested we do a brief overview of  SPORTS / ACTION  PHOTOGRAPHY.

TOPICS TO BE COVERED regarding sports/action photography will include:

1) camera gear with emphasis on specifications & configuration for sports

2) lenses .. prime vs zoom .. aperture ratings .. focal lengths .. etc.

3) accessories to consider (mem cards / monopod / etc.)

4) techniques utilized ...

Until then, as always ... HAPPY  SHOOTING  !!!  (Ron)

      Sorry you could not make it . we had to abandon the hockey game trip as we did not have anywhere near enough people to make it work - Ron

    Informative meetup Ron. Touched a lot of points in regards to sports photography. Was a good idea by Bill to use a prime lens and move around if you can, especially if you can't afford the $2K lenses!

    Ron, thank you for your presentation last night. I was a little overwhelmed because of my lack of experience but!!!! I took three pages of notes, will review and have many questions. I totally enjoyed the evening and felt I am on my way in a journey through Photography.... Loved it.....

    Ron, thank you. Nice presentation. Lots of useful information, I always learn so much. Because of what I've learned in this group, my camera has been off the automatic settings for almost a yr, except for action shots; now , I feel I have enough info. to break free of the auto settings when shooting sports and active kids and dogs, too.

    I'm excited about upcoming presentations on flash/lighting and photo papers.

    Most was beyond my expertise and my camera/lens, but I still learned some things I can use. Never a waste of time! Always something good!
