We will discuss 2020 Camera Club Assignments at our November 19th meeting. Jim will bring in a list of possible choices, we will discuss and vote by the December meeting. If you have any assignment ideas, please get them to Jim before November 16th, so he can add them to the list.
Jim Crapko would like to invite the club over to his house to shoot his Miniature Halloween Village on Tueday, October 29th at 7:00 p.m. The Halloween Village is a large and detailed desplay (indoors) with a lot of opportunities to shoot pictures of figures, buildings and scenery with unique and challenging lighting. Bring your cameras, lens (close up and zoom) with fast f/stops and tripods if you desire. The shoot will count toward our November (close up/macro) and December Competitions. Snacks and drinks will be provided by Jim and Mary Ellen. Jim lives at 14851 Stuart Court, Gibraltar. Phone #734.671.6824. See you for a fun evening!
All is set for the club to visit the Merry-Go-Round Museum in Sandusky OH, next Saturday the 14th. Those members that wish to carpool can meet at the Southgate Library lot about 8 am. I contacted a rep at the Museum and let them know we plan to arrive about 10-30 am. It is approximately a 2 hour ride from Southgate. Here is their website: http://www.merrygoroundmuseum.org/?fbclid=IwAR3QvNHXhbogSx0b-vwUQW2swELJsjA8SxbV3bVrCx9VQQJLJfoiP4caego
Dan Holowicki has gratiously invited the club to have a barbeque summer picnic at his house on August 20th at 6:30. He will supply bbq pulled pork, grilled hot dogs, and bratwurst, ice tea and lemonade. If everyone would like to bring a dish to pass, that would be great. He needs a headcount so he knows how much to buy. So if everyone could let us know at the meeting tonight if would be helpful. Dan might not be able to make tonight's meeting and asked me to do a headcount.
His address is 13824 Longtin, Southgate, 1 block west of intersection of Superior and Trenton Rd. See you all tonight! Claudia
Tuesday's Workshop will be instructed by Mike Sporka. The subject is focus stacking. I hope we have a good turnout for this class. It sounds interesting! Below is Mike's description of what he will teach:
Hoping there is a good turnout next Tuesday (May 21) when focus stacking (primarily involving close up/flower photography) will be presented. I will present the “manual” method realizing that many members have in camera focus stacking capability (including touch screen focus ability) therefore a highly interactive approach to this subject will benefit all of us. I can tell you that focus stacking can make a profound difference in your images. Keep in mind macro photography is coming up as a competition in November.
