March 2019 T&T
Charles Dirks – Basics of Using a Flash

by ecc

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

The goal of this T&T is to be able to dig down to the bottom of the camera
bag, find the flash we bought when we bought the camera and actually feel like we can use the flash to get better pictures.

Todays flash units often come with nearly as many settings as our cameras. Which of these settings are required, which are useful and are there some (hopefully) that we can set once and forget or never use?

I will share my flash settings and explain how I can just pick up my flash and simply turn it on and get predictable results every time. I do have one camera setting I use occasionally, flash compensation and we will go over when, why and how.

Hopefully, your flash can move from the “I have one, but never use it” to “I use it every time it is needed”. There are certainly times where the flash will not solve all your lighting situations, but there are several lighting problems that a flash will help.

Bring your flash if you want.

Doors open at 6:30 for social time.

Members, guests and students welcome.

Joseph Roybal is a professional fine art landscape photographer based in Denver, Colorado. His passion for photography stems simply from his love of the outdoors. His tagline, Explore.Learn.Share., is based on Joseph’s ability to combine his personal experiences in the field with his developing knowledge of the art, and to educate others who share his love for photography. His imagery is presented in a way that speaks to the importance of protecting natural habitats and is reflected in his involvement in organizations such as Rocky Mountain Climate Organization and Protect Our Winters (POW).

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.
