Minutes – October 14, 2014

October 14, 2014 – 7:15pm
Approximately 30 people in attendance, four visitors – one of whom was a club member approximately 10 years ago!

This meeting was hosted by past President, Derek Johnston.

We had three wonderful presentations by club members.  The first, by Kas Stone, covered Depth of Field – what it is, why it is important to your photography, how it is determined and included how to achieve desired results.  Kas also kindly provided a handout which was forwarded to club members by email.

John Burnett presented on ISO, covering what it is, how it affects exposure, limitations of various types of cameras and the end result of images.

Both presentations were very informative and well received.

Refreshments were provided by Yvonne Murray.  Volunteers are still needed to provide refreshments for future meetings.

After the break, Grant Dixon presented Back to Basics – his evolution in photography.  He shared his influences, experiences in art, commercial work – including portraits, products, magazines, events, stock and pro bono.  He also shared  what types of images he enjoys the most and the least.  His images reflected his journey over the years and his stories were both informative and entertaining.

James Campbell provided information about the upcoming field trip on October 18th to Blue Rocks and Stonehurst.  This will include our annual scavenger hunt, the winner(s) of which will receive a trophy at the end of the year.  Members can participate individually or as part of a team.  Lunch will be in Lunnenburg.

Members who wish to participate in the Create an Image exercise received their images from John Burnett.  There are six different images in both raw and jpeg.  Choose the images and format that you want to work with and change them as little or as much as you want.  Further instructions will follow by email.

Images from the September 20th field trip are to be submitted by October 25th; instructions have already been sent out.

The October 28th meeting will be our first competition – Floral.  Please submit three digital images by Saturday, October 25th.  Instructions will be sent out by email.

The meeting adjourned at 9:30pm.
