November’s Featured Speaker:
We watched a video of David DuChemin (of Nanoose Bay) https://davidduchemin.com/ talking on 'The Heart of the Photograph'. Some wonderful photos relating to choosing the right moment to press the shutter to express the feeling of the subject. He encourages photographers to get clear about what exactly it is that they want to share and express. If you take several pictures of a subject one photo will usually stand out as 'the one'. Hopefully, we can see more of his talk at another meeting. Several people expressed how much they enjoyed it.
Then we watched the slideshow of the 'Patterns' theme. As usual - an interesting and varied show.
Theme for December: Open – anything that makes you happy – even the season but not limited to it.
