Regular Club Meeting
Doors open at 7pm and the regular meeting starts at 7:30pm. We will be viewing the May theme images (FLOWERS) and June theme images (BIRDS). The main program for today will be shooting stations set up by Chuck Kulpa. So bring your tripods and cameras and be ready to shoot and learn.

Station # 1- Hyperfocal Distance and Depth of Field: We talked about these concepts and sweet spots so bring as many lenses as you want to "map" and we'll help you learn more about your equipment. Station # 2- More Fun Than Watching Paint Dry: Abstract art using paint. If you have any old pie tins or flat tupperware lying around the house please bring them. Also newspapers and paint (the gaudier the better as far as color goes). Note: Please bring no more than a cup in a clean container that you can take home and throw away. We don't want to turn the church into a toxic waste dump. Station # 3- Liquid Abstract: This is a reprise of the food coloring in water for the new members and for those who didn't get to play with them the last time. Station # 4- A bubble before it's a bubble: We'll be photographing bubble solution before its blown. Station # 5- Who says oil and water and photography don't mix? Are any of your kids finger painters? They can help us out by making backgrounds for our oil bubbles. Stripes or light colored abstracts would be great. Or if you have an interesting piece of fabric bring it. Station # 6- Reflections: We will be photographing reflections of objects you bring in. It will work best if you bring your own objects to photograph. I would recommend objects from the size of a golf ball to no larger than a toaster. These are your pictures so they should be of what you are interested in. Station # 7- Kaleidoscope: I have built an attachment for everyone to use (yes, even you canon people) to make kaleidoscope images of your objects or subjects. So bring an object ( and background) you would like to see distorted. See the attached photo so you can see what I am talking about. Bring your widest angle lens for the best results.
* A lot of the stations are going to be best shot with a macro lens or extension tube. But don't worry they can be done with other lenses too.
