OCTOBER 2018 T&T: Mounting Photos for Library Display

by ecc


October 24, 2018
BERGEN PARK FIRE STATION
7pm (6:30 SOCIAL TIME)

The Evergreen Camera Club has the exhibition wall in the Evergreen Library reserved for displaying our photographs in the month of November. This is a large space, and can easily hold 60-100 photos, depending on size and arrangement, so there is room for EVERYONE to show some of their work.

Photos can be in frames, or mounted on foam board, or whatever. They need not all be mounted the same. The main wall is fabric-covered wood, and nails can be driven into it to hang framed photos with hanging wire. The easiest way to display your photos is to mount then on foam board and use Velcro to stick them to the wall.

At the October 24th Tips and Techniques meeting we will be mounting prints on foam boards. ECC will provide the material and expertise so you can mount your photos for the exhibit. So, gather up your photos. Size can vary. Many photos need to be 8×10 or larger to show well. They can be much larger if you prefer. Depending on the subject and how much they grab attention via color or contrast, some could be smaller. Occasionally a 5×7 or maybe a panoramic view, say 4×11, would work.
This will be an excellent opportunity for members to bring their prints and get help mounting the prints to a backing suitable for display at the library.

APRIL 25, 2018 T&T: Do You Need a Permit to Photograph on Public Lands?

by ecc

BERGEN PARK FIRE STATION
7 PM (SOCIAL TIME 6:30)

If you routinely (or even occasionally) shoot in National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, US Forests or BLM lands, this session is for you. About 10 years ago Congress passed a law that requires federal land managers to issue filming permits for photographic and video use of public lands. (Note – this doesn’t apply to state or local parks).

Permits fall into two major categories and photographers are often confused about needing a permit or which permit to acquire. This presentation will walk through the situations and circumstances such permits are required, inter net links, and general advice from a photographer and retired National Park Superintendent.

MARCH 28, 2018 T&T: LORRIE MCALLISTER – Fine Tuning Focus on Your Lenses

BERGEN PARK FIRE STATION
7 PM (SOCIAL TIME 6:30)

Fine Tuning Focus on Your Lenses

Calibrating your lenses is actually very simple, and it is very important to help you get the most out of that expensive lens. Many, if not most, lenses coming from the factory need fine tuning in order to achieve the most accurate focus. Focusing in back of, or in front of, your intended subject is commonplace.
We’ll work together to understand why you’d want to fiddle with the autofocus feature of your lenses, and how to make easy adjustments that will improve your “hit rate” for fantastic photos!

Bring your DSLR, one or two lenses, and a pen and paper for notes.
