Entitled “More Digital File Basics”, Pat will continue the series expanding our knowledge of digital files and their management. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend, new and valuable information for the novice as well as interesting refresher for the more experienced. 7 PM (6:30 social time) at Evergreen Fire Station #2 in Bergen Park.
Our Guest Speaker will be Photographer Katie Taft from WORKING WITH ARTISTS, the Digital & Film Photographic Arts School in Denver. A slightly different twist from some of our past guests, this promises to be informative and entertaining. Please join us on Tuesday, March 11th at Evergreen Fire Station #2 in Bergen Park. Social time (6:30 -7:00) followed by Presentation.
Club Member Betty Holling will lead this month’s Mentoring Session sharing some of her extensive photo editing know how. Betty has been working with Photoshop for about seven years on a Windows Platform, and has taken several classes on working with Photoshop. Classes include a SantaFe Workshop, and a class given by NANPA (No. American Nature Photographers Assn.). Everyone is encouraged to bring a laptop, and thru the use of a transfer stick with photos – provided by Betty, we will be able to edit along with her.
Theme for the March competition/critique will play off of our most recent guest speaker, Jacob Ware, and get us thinking along the lines of a Photojournalist. “Pictures that tell a story”… interpretation for this theme limited only by your imagination. We’re all familiar with media stories and the pictures that accompany them. There are the ones that stand out in our minds, history making, as well as the ones that are simply cute, interesting, ‘in the moment’. Have fun with it!
The Public is invited to attend our next monthly meeting when our guest speaker will be Jacob Ware of Concept Photography Inc. in Denver. A photographer for ten years, Jacob has a degree in photojournalism and has worked for a number of news outlets including The Associated Press, The St. Louis Post Dispatch, and The Aspen Times. He began a freelance career in Denver in 2001, and started Concept Photography Inc. in 2007 where he continues to make unforgettable images as a freelance photojournalist.
The theme for our next Critique & Competition is – Nature Photography that does NOT include the “hand-of-man”. Outdoor Photography often includes things we would never come across in a purely natural environment. Signs are the more obvious, but then there are reservoirs, fences, roads, bird feeders.. just a few we might overlook. Specific situations, certain publications, some competitions, strictly adhere to this rule. Having this goal in mind will add a new element of thought, when composing our Nature shots.
Presentation will be on better understanding how digital imaging works. Idea is to put into simple terms how the camera collects and stores the information that makes up a picture, how this affects different file formats, and to lay the foundation for understanding how virtually all image editing processes work.
Hope to see you there… 7 PM (6:30 social time)… Evergreen Fire Sta #2, Bergen Park. Keep warm….
The Public is invited to attend the next “Evergreen Camera Club” Meeting when we will be pleased to have as our Guest Speaker, Foothill’s resident and photographer, John Castor. John’s interesting and extensive background has evolved into a lifestyle where he manages to place himself in areas and situations where taking great photos becomes natural and compelling. His extended travels to Alaska, the Yukon, Canadian Rockies, Glacier Park, as well as Wilderness areas of the Rocky Mtn West, all a Nature Photographer’s dream.
