Welcome one and all to the Hub Camera Club!

Message from the Chair - September - 2014

Hello, Hub Camera Club Members—

When you're out and about on a photo opportunity don't forget to observe all about you, not just what's in front of you. You'll be surprised at what you might have missed. -Ralph

Scheduled for October's Meeting

Joel Sartore's - 'Aperture and Depth of Field' and 'Found or Ambient Light' The program will be a workshop featuring two of Joel Satore's video lectures on using your camera from his collection of videos "Making Great Photography by Joel Satore." The first video will cover aperture and depth of field. He tells how to produce a photo where everything is in focus, or only the subject is in focus. The amount of available light and the speed of your lens can play a role in those choices. The second part of the program will discuss what to look for when shooting with ambient light. He will explain how to adjust lighting in the environment as well as in the camera. Both video segments will be followed by a period of discussion.

Hub Camera Club Minutes

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Twenty-one members were present, 3 guests, Laurie, Mindy and Shari, and our evaluator for the evening, and his friend. Laura Keber was busy before the meeting taking members dues for the 2014-2015 year. Ralph French, President, called the meeting to order. He then asked Ed Valusek, our projectionist, to introduce our evaluator, Mike Shumaker from Auburn.

There were 12 photos in Monochrome, 16 in the Color category, 14 in Nature, and 15 in theAssigned Subject ofChildren. The best of the evening photo was from the Children category. It was “The Look” by Tammy Arruda.

Some things the judge said to watch out for is negative space but you still need some to lead into the photo. It is important that the photo is interesting and brings the viewer’s eye into the image. It is better if your imagemakes a strong statement. Using light and shadows can make a photo more interesting. Objects in a photo can act like an anchor that keeps a viewer interested in the photo.

Our next meeting will be on Wed., Oct. 8th. We will continue watching the video series to help us improve out techniques. Our November 12th meeting will be an evaluation meeting. The Assigned Subject will be Still Life.

Meeting was adjourned.
