Here is the information for Steve Perry's Backcountry Gallery workshop on noise reduction that Bob Panick played at the last meeting. It’s about an hour an half long, and costs $14.97. Bob said that he learned more in the first 15 minutes about noise reduction than he had picked up in 10 years. Not to mention a bonus of getting a really cool tutorial on layers, masking and other tricks. Definitely worth the cost. https://backcountrygallery.com/new-video-workshop-noise-re…/
On Saturday, 7 club members went to the Chi-Town Railroad Museum to shoot the model trains. There was a lot to shoot, some of it was challenging. Below are a few pics of our members in action. Afterwards, we went to a coney for lunch. Claudia
The club has planned a field trip to the Chi-Town Model Railroad Museum on Saturday, November 10th. We will meet at the Southgate Library at 9:00 a.m. and car pool to the museum. The Model Railroad is the "Home of the Longest Model Train" and is a great opportunity to snap photos of model trains in a great environment. The museum is located at 8275 Cooley Lake Road, Commerce, Michigan. We plan to arrive at the museum at 10:00 a.m. and there is a $5.00 admission fee.
Everyone was asking if we will still have a meeting on November 6th because it is also voting day. I asked at the library, and they are open. We will have our competition night, as usual. Claudia
Jim Crapko is inviting the club over to his house for a Miniature Halloween Village shoot on Thursday October 25th at 7:00 p.m. The village is an elaborate Halloween display (indoors) with lots of opportunities to snap pictures of figures, buildings and scenery with unique lighting. Recommend that you bring cameras, lens (close up and zoom) with fast f/stops and tripods if you desire. This shoot will count towards our December assignment. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Jim lives at 14851 Stuart Court, Gibraltar. Phone #734.671.6824.
Just a reminder that The Southgate Creative Camera Club field trip is planned for this Saturday 9/22/18 to Eastern Market in Detroit to photograph the Murals in the Market (and anything else of interest).
