Greetings everyone! Hope you are all starting to get back out and use your photography gear as the outside weather has started to cool off some!
I've tried to keep my emails to a minimum but it hsa been awhile since I wrote everyone. So I wanted to write and share some upcoming information about events and classes.
First off, the events. We have the Alliance Air Show scheduled for next weekend (Oct. 6 & 7). This will be my first time to the airshow so please if you have some suggestions for best places to go, etc. plesae share them on the comment page of the meetup event website.
I've also scheduled the next streaking tail lights for November 9th. This is a Friday night. The reason I wait so long for this is that is the first Friday AFTER we move our clocks back. That way we will have more "headed home" traffic and it will give you a great deal of tail lights to work with for your long exposures. So I hope you will come out for that.
We still have other dates open between the air show and the streaking tail lights. If you would like to host a photo event, please let me know! Lets get some more things on the calendar!
The calendar is being populated with some more classes for those of you interested in learning more about photography. This Saturday Eric will teach an Outdoor Portrait Class designed to teach you how to use your speedlight flashes for better portraits outdoors. There will be a model for this shoot so bring your cameras and you'll come away with some lovely images!
Other Classes on the agenda are:
How to Shoot Sports_ Tuesday Oct 2
Photography 101 Basic Camera Operations and Exposure Basics- Tuesday Oct. 9
Photography 102 Basic Camera Operations and Exposur Basics Part II - Oct 16
Outdoor Portraits Made Easy - Teaches outdoor portrait techniques using nothing but natural light and reflectors. Bring your cameras as a model is available to shoot with this one as well. Oct. 20
Macro Photography Workshop- Oct 27
One last note, our club is up to 2900 members! Woohoo! I know many aren't as active as they used to be, but they still hang around. So I appreciate all of you for being members and if you aren't active for awhile, thats ok, we'll be here when you are ready to pick up your camera again!
