One of the simplest approaches to macro photography is the close-up lens, a lens that fastens to the front of a regular camera lens. A close-up lens allows one to get closer to a subject, closer than the camera could otherwise focus at. The subject then appears larger.
Below is an example using two close-up lenses: a Canon 500D and a Cinevate…Continue

The deadline for submitting photos to this year's Eclectic Visions virtual show has come and gone! It was May 15th but I'm sure there's still time to beg an entry if the dates slipped your mind.
On May 25th the Victoria Camera Club has organized a talk on macro photography with Don Komarechka. Kahsia highly recommends him and, since Macro is our next month's challenge, it is a pertinent subject to look in to. You…Continue

An advert came up that Topazlabs.com has a sale on for the next 14 days. They must have heard the discussion on Zoom tonight! I won't post the link because it was on FB.
UPDATE: Apparently this is a reported problem with Zoom in that it does share content with Facebook & others.

2. What is the normal attendance at a club meeting?
I miss seeing fellow club members, the educational programs and the monthly themed slide show.
I am willing to assist helping arrange the room with proper social distancing and with putting chairs away. I am also alright with wearing a mask…Continue
