May 2019 Meeting

Next Meeting Thursday May 9, 2019

Loyalist College Pioneer building room P13

7:30 – 9:30

Night Sky Photography presentation and Workshop Postponed

Since the weather forecast is calling for a 100% chance of 30-40mm of rain for Thursday-Friday, we have made the decision to postpone the Night Sky Photography Workshop. Since the presentation is connected with the workshop, we will have some alternative presentations this month.

  • Joseph Leduc will give us one of his intently informative presentations, this time featuring macro photography.
  • Larry Tayler will take us on a wonderful photo journey to Tasmania and Australia.
  • We will have time to view and discuss our attempts at street photography.
  • And finally, we will have the opportunity to view and score the images that have been submitted for our upcoming exhibition at the Parrott Art Gallery.

This should be a full and interesting evening!

Feature Presentation:  Night Sky Photography

Postponed due to rain

Ariel Estulin

Ariel Estulin is an award winning photographer and photo educator. Primarily interested in landscapes, he travels the world seeking out beauty in those wild and remote places on earth that still remain untouched by civilization and where nature commands ultimate attention.

Self-taught as a photographer, he spent time with Freeman Patterson, Canada’s renowned photographer, to learn the art of making great photographs. His training as a graphic designer continually shapes what he sees through the lens in order that elements such as light, shape and colour all work in harmony. His never-ending search for off-beat adventures have led him to explore the Himalayas of Nepal and Ladakh, along with South America’s Patagonia. He feels right at home paddling his canoe or hiking in his backyard, the country of Canada.

As a photo educator, his goal is for students to come away with not just better photographs, but a better understanding of photography, better compositions and most importantly, a skill set they now have and can use on future adventures.
