September 2018 General Meeting:
Connie Rudd – Cameras for a Cause – Conservation Photography

“Conservation Photography is about inspiring thoughtful action with the goal of achieving real and tangible conservation gains.”
        Alexandra Garcia, Executive Director, International League of Conservation Photographers

Evergreen Camera Club member Connie Rudd will present an overview of conservation photography — and how you can become inspired and involved — for the Wednesday, September 12th meeting at 7:00 pm at the Evergreen Fire & Rescue Building (1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen). She will introduce the concepts and successful work of conservation photography and well-known photographers in the field.  “Many photographers use their photography to express themselves artistically through their images because they have a deep love of the natural world and are concerned about protecting wilderness, wildlife, air and water quality, open spaces and functioning ecosystems,” Connie explained. “Conservation and photography complement each other. Conservation organizations are in constant need of fresh images that accurately depict the condition of wild places and who else but us — we are out there all the time — to provide compelling photographs for the purpose of conservation.”

Connie will offer suggestions on how to sell or donate your work to conservation organizations, get your work on the front page of your local newspapers and how to help local organizations protect valuable landscapes.

Connie Rudd’s 35-year career was committed to conservation and preservation with the National Park Service.  Since her retirement in 2014, she has picked up her cameras more frequently and now has the freedom to wander, finding “nature at its best.”  Connie taught photojournalism at Arapahoe High School in the 1970s, has written books about the Grand Canyon — illustrated in part with her photos — and currently exhibits in three locations in Colorado.  She won the “Best Image by a Colorado Photographer in Show” in 2016 in a nationally juried show sponsored by the Southern Colorado Photography Society, celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service. Her focus with her photography is to inspire citizen stewardship of public lands, assuring the next generation the same opportunities found today for learning, creating artful images, and “making a difference.” Find Connie’s work at www.connieruddphotography.zenfolio.com

Join us for dinner at Casa Tequila’s at 5 pm with our speaker. RSVP on Meetup.

BOB MAYNARD — To Filter or Not to Filter

by Ellen Nelson


BOB MAYNARD — To Filter or Not to Filter

National award-winning photographer Bob Maynard wondered about photographic filters:
1. What about keeping a “protective filter” on your lens?
2. Is there a difference in brands?
3. Does cost matter?
4. What about digital filters available in post-processing software?
His results may surprise you. Bob Maynard will reveal his findings at the August 8th Evergreen Camera Club meeting, at 7:00 pm (come early to socialize or see Meetup for dinner details) at the Evergreen Fire & Rescue Building, 1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen.

MAY 9, 2018 General Meeting: JOSEPH ROYBAL

by ecc


JOSEPH ROYBAL: Scouting and Preparing for your Photographic Journey: The Photography Field Guide

“Going into the field to take photos takes so much more than simply grabbing your camera and walking out the door to be successful,” Joseph Roybal explains in his upcoming presentation, Scouting and Preparing for your Photographic Journey: The Photography Field Guide. Join the Evergreen Camera Club on May 9th at 7:00 pm (come early to socialize or see Meetup for dinner details) at the Evergreen Fire & Rescue Building, 1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen to discover how Joseph prepares for a shoot. He will discuss his behind-the-scenes preparation and methods to search and create a detailed route to take advantage of and be most effective with his time in the field: from inspiration in finding an image, to looking at satellite imagery, all the way to creating waypoints online to take with you into the field for offline navigation. “These techniques always evolving for me; however, the fundamentals of preparedness and being aware are critical for maximizing my efforts as well as safety while in the field.”

UPDATE: For those who are interested, Joseph has posted a pdf of all of his slides for your enjoyment at this link.

Joseph Roybal is a professional fine art landscape photographer based in Denver. His tagline, Explore.Learn.Share. comes from a simple desire to raise environmental awareness and take everything he has learned and experienced in the field and share with others in presentations, private 1-on-1 photo tours, in addition to post processing techniques and getting your images to look their best for print. Joseph is proud to be represented by several of the industry’s leading companies such as ZEAL Optics, Mountain Standard, Peak Design and Vanguard Tripods and is a member of the Zenfolio Ambassador’s Team and Lowepro Storyteller Team.
