April Assignment

Katie Taft, our March Guest Speaker, concluded her presentation by challenging our group with an assignment, which we shall use as the theme for our next critique/competition. Katie has asked that we construct a scene, setting-up what it is we choose to photograph, and for which there should be a narrative quality. For better ideas of how this works, and to stimulate our creative process, she has supplied the names of some artists who do just this.

October 23rd - Mentoring Meeting

One of the most asked question of me is: How do I use the histogram on my digital camera (or computer)? My answer has been, I do not know, I have never used it. Well, I have good news. I have identified at least one person that told me, just yesterday, that he uses it all the time and it will improve your photos! Now if there is anyone else out there that has used histograms, please step forward. I would love to have 2 or 3 speakers talking about this subject and their experiences. For those that have asked about histograms, here is your chance to learn more about it.
