November 2017 Meeting

Next meeting Thursday, November 9, 2017

Loyalist College, Pioneer Building, Room P13 (please take note of the room change)


Special guest speaker Mat Coker from Acorn & Oak Family Photography

One of the toughest things in photography is to walk into a chaotic scene (or even worse, a boring one) and know how to get a good photo. I’m excited to walk you through my approach to “lifestyle” or candid photography, showing you how to photograph just about anything without interrupting the scene. We’ll cover topics like making great photos with a crappy camera, understanding the “psychology” of the people you’re photographing, and how to grow creatively as a photographer.  


Visit the Acorn and Oak Photography Website!
Our specialty is birth photography, and families with kids!

After the break we will have a short discussion on the recent changes with Adobe Lightroom, onOne Photo Suite, Topaz Studio, and the Nik Software Collection. We will also try to squeeze in a short video on creativity before rounding out the meeting with a review of our monthly theme images.

This month’s theme: In Living Colour

Don’t forget to upload your images to our theme gallery on this website.

Special Invitation to the Brighton Photo Group

The meeting on November 7th will be devoted entirely to a special presentation by Phillip Sun. For this presentation, guests will be charged $10.00. The meeting takes place at 9:30 am at the King Edward Arena in Brighton.
His  presentation “Work The Light” has four segments. The program is specially designed to help  camera club members to better understand the concepts of light, and train their visual senses toward seeing the light. Once they have mastered the technique on how and where to look for the light, they will begin to see a lot more interesting subjects that they normally would have passed up on.
Segment A: How and where to look for light
Segment B: Understanding the concepts of light
Segment C: How to make use of nature’s elements to help enhance the image quality
Segment D: Post processing on images that were taken in unfavorable lighting conditions
The duration of the show is about an hour and forty five minutes, with a fifteen minute break. He will have a small number of CDs made available to the club members to purchase at a cost of $5. This way, club members do not have to jot down notes in the dark. The contents on the CD will provide all instructions and image references of the evening program.
