October meeting minutes

Pierre was away in Washington DC talking to Congress -  about ecology, we think. Avril hosted the meeting with her usual grace and humour.

The Club members who were present thanked Judy, Ross and Kahsia for all the hard work they put into the Fall Fair photography section.  Kahsia, in turn, thanked all the club volunteers who helped over the weekend. It was very successful and had more photo entries than other years. Simon was one of the judges, putting in 10 hours at least, and many…

Minutes for May meeting

Shows:   Bernadette is showing mixed media work about the clear-cut logging that happened last year near Beddis Road, a subject close to her heart.

A bench to commemorate Bob Rogers was installed on the dock by the float plane shelter in Ganges. A small ceremony took place on the dock on Saturday and Photoclub members and Bob's uncle ate and drank and took photos of each other sitting on the bench. This bench will be much enjoyed by people who can now wait for their plane…

A bench for Bob

Bob Rogers' family wanted a memorial bench to be installed somewhere on Salt Spring. The perfect spot has been found, down on the dock in Ganges where the sea-planes come and go. Bob used to love taking photos of these planes and now fellow photographers and travellers will have a place to sit in the sun while waiting for their plane ride or contemplating the perfect shot. Wendy has, of course, been instrumental in making this happen and it is going to be installed today, Thursday 9th, at…

Putting it out there...

Hello SSPHOTOG people,

I have been away from this club for some time, and recently re-signed up. Glad to be back.

Hopefully someone reading this, some really good Salt Spring Island Samaritan, can help me.

Story:

I am the main photographer shooting a dance recital at ArtSpring on December 14. Situated firmly in the middle of Row C. Hopefully, you have been at ArtSpring to relate to where this is. Appreciating that this limits focal…

Minutes for October meeting

Avril stood in for Pierre and opened the meeting. The group sat in an informal circle as the educational part of the meeting was given over to a discussion about the future direction of the Club.

Marcia Jeanne's friend Olivia (from France) was a guest at the meeting and she told me afterwards that listening to the discussion was good practice for her English comprehension.

Bernadette has two pieces showing at Artspring as part of the Painters Guild's…

Minutes for September meeting

Pierre opened the meeting by welcoming our newest member, Merv Anderson.

Since the summer some people are not getting Club emails and Doug suggested looking in our spam boxes and, if they are there, adding them to favorites so that they are re-classified. Wendy will chat with Ning about this problem.

Doug show at the library continues until Sept. 29th.

Evelyn Smith's photos are showing all month at Country Grocer.

What kind of camera?

At last night's club meeting, many of us were curious about David Ellingsen's camera, settings, etc.

It reminding me of this article: https://digital-photography-school.com/why-your-camera-gear-doesnt-matter/

That said, David's comments about how he uses his camera helped me.
