Congratulations to all challenge submitters for Fresh! | May Challenge Theme

Hello all,

I want to offer congratulations to all who submitted images for the April Challenge theme of Fresh!

We saw some incredible images in the album and looked at several of them during the Photo Review portion of our meeting on the 24th of April.  Unfortunately since we could not get our wifi to work in the room, Bryan did not have the final version of the presentation slideshow and a few images that arrived close to the meeting did not make it to the screen.  All the images submitted are in the Fresh! album in the Gallery and I encourage you all to have a look.  Brilliant work!

Since we spent time on Night Photography in the Learning portion of the meeting, the theme for May is Bring on the Night  I know it isn't May (yet) but the skies are great, the lighting is awesome, so go out and make some images.  Submit your entries and submit often!  We encourage members to submit multiple images with complete EXIF data, my only request is that you specify which ONE you would like in the Photo Review.



Meeting Summary : October 18, 2011

pThanks to all who pre-registered and came out to our October meeting.  It was certainly a packed room.  And now to summarize some outcomes from the meeting.../p
p1.  If you plan to attend the November meeting with our session on printing and paper, register NOW.  Until we find a new location, we are limited to 20 seats./p
p2.  We need a new location.  Henry's has been very kind to us, but we are running into the attendee count limit for the room imposed by the Fire Department.  Our needs are simple :)  In Newmarket, capable of holding 40-50 people, chairs for attendees, power for projectors etc., a white wall to project on or a screen and no cost.  We really want to keep the club fee free and so no cost is really important.  Email if you have an option./p
p3.  Our session on white and colour balance was well received.  It will be converted into a voiced over video and posted on the site.  The recorded demonstration on profiling your printer will also be posted.  I expect both to be up and done in the next two weeks./p
p4.  We had requests for access to the materials from the September session on protecting your rights to your photos.  I will also post the video on how to make a simple watermark in Photoshop.  Both presentations will be voiced over and posted to the site.  Date presently TBD./p
p5.  A request was made by one member and seconded by most attendees for a session on basic photography theory including why apertures are counted the way they are, what they mean, more detail on the Bryangle ™   (the linkage between aperture, shutter speed and ISO) and related technical history and fun facts.  So I will build that program.  Likely delivery will be February./p
p6.  Better Flash will be the learning topic for January 2012, part of our overall Learning Lighting plan of action.  This is not a substitute or replacement for any Henry's School of Imaging program as it will be short and to the point.  Attendees can be expected to be asked to volunteer as models for the live demonstration./p
p7.  We announced that Rogers Community Television has picked up Daytripper Photo Television and we anticipate episodes airing early in 2012.  A web site and more info is forthcoming./p
p8.  There will be no meeting in December in consideration of the holiday retail period and human availability./p
pI may have missed some things.  If I did and you remember, email and remind me so I can add them to the work list./p
