February 2019 T&T
Michael Cahoon – Smart Phone Photography

by ecc

February 27, 2019
BERGEN PARK FIRE STATION
7pm (6:30 SOCIAL TIME)

There’s a wise saying among experienced photographers: “The Best Camera is the One You Have With You”.

Our mobile phones are always close at hand. What must you know to take award winning photos with such a lightweight affordable device?

We will explore different ways to open the camera app, achieve perfect focus, in-camera workflow choices to achieve fabulous photos, and much more.

This talk will not be about composition, lighting choices, and other such photography skills.

Doors open at 6:30.

Members, guests and students welcome! No RSVP would be nice, but not necessary. Bring your smart phone!

February 9th 2019 General Meeting:
DAWN WILSON – Nature Photography on the Road

by ecc


Love, death and 76,000 photos! Dawn Wilson will cover the adventures — and misadventures –of her travels on the road in an RV to photograph wildlife across the U.S. After 15 months and almost 76,000 shots, she photographed the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Gulf of Mexico, Gulf of Alaska and plenty in between. She fell in love, learned how to fix a water pump in the Alaskan tundra, said goodbye to one of her dogs, and discovered a lot about her perseverance. During that time, she witnessed many amazing sights and sounds provided by nature.

Join professional nature photographer Dawn Wilson at the Evergreen Camera Club’s next meeting on February 13 at 7:00 pm (come early to socialize or see Meetup for dinner details) at the Evergreen Fire & Rescue Building, 1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen. Visitors, guests and students are encouraged to attend. Her presentation is about more than nature photography — but how nature photography can shape and heal your world.
