Congratulations to our Annual Folio Competition winner - Henri Lajer! Great job Henir!
Ilford, T-Max, Plus-X, Tri-X, Kentmere, CineStill BwXX, Arista are some of the black and white films still available. This month we celebrate film with a presentation by Ted Dayton and Rick Russell at our monthly meeting Tuesday September 11, 2018.
I’m very excited about the meeting as I am very excited about our film side group that starts on Wednesday September 19th at my house. Email me and I’ll send you my address if you want to attend. We’ll start at 7 pm and have a discussion on what we intend to do in the group, which will include; learning how to develop black and white film, 35 mm, 120 mm, and 4x5 sheet film. We will also learn to print in a black and white darkroom.
We will study some of the great photographers like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Diane Arbus, Robert Capa and others. So grab your film cameras and let’s have some fun!
Football season has started which means my Friday nights are now spent under the lights. I love this time of year knowing that the holiday season will be fully upon us as the high school football season ends.
Cooler weather, the excitement in my grandchildren’s eyes as they see the holiday decorations go up, This is what I call the “funnest time of the year.”
At our June meeting we held a low-key lighting workshop. We are going to expand on that in October, hoping to have three stations’ 1 hi-key and 2 low-key stations set up where you can try out the different lighting techniques. So, everyone bring your cameras and stuff and be ready to shoot.
Our Digital Image Competition is just around the corner, November 13, 2018. So get your images ready. This is our last contest of the year, let’s make it a good one.
December we will have our annual Holiday party, Mel and I will cook up some Brisket, Tri-tip and pulled pork, we’ll ask that everyone else brings side dishes like we’ve done the last couple of years and it’s really worked out well.
In January we are going to do a “still life/table top” lighting workshop, and we’re working on a Nik software presentation for February.
If you have any images you would like to share with the group at the next meeting, please forward the images to me email@example.com by 5pm Friday September 6th.
I hope everyone is doing well and can’t wait to see you at our next meeting, Tuesday, September 10th, 6:45pm Sierra Hills Clubhouse.
Keep Shooting my Friends!
