Next Meeting Topic:

March 6, 2017:Triple header of presentations AND the annual Postcard Competition!
Flower Photography by Sue Gajda
Seeing in Black & White by Bill Dixon
Intro to Night Photography by Steve Ornberg
This meeting three of our club members will present topics that are near and dear to their hearts.

Sue Gajda will discuss how to learn basic photography techniques by photographing flowers. She will explore techniques, equipment and post -processing as a means to explore your creativity when photographing flowers.

In his presentation, Bill Dixon will explore the question “why shoot in black and white”? Shooting images in color and then wondering whether to convert the image to black and white employs a very different mindset from setting out and seeing the world in black and white.  Bill will help us all to train our photographic eye to see in black & white.

Steve Ornberg will share night photography tips and techniques that he has learned in the last year from several workshops and photo shoots. He will review the various types of night photography and concentrate on tips and techniques for star point and Milky Way photography.
The annual Postcard Competition will be held at Mayslake on March 6 with all of our entries entered into the CACCA Postcard Competition event held on April 8. Bring two  4×6 postcards to the meeting by 6:30 pm on March 6th to allow voting before the meeting.  Refer to the February Focus and/or CACCA website for rules.
