For the Fundamentals Program Brian Narveson showed one of our Great Courses DVD on Depth of Field. After the video Brian showed everyone how to use the depth of Field calculator on the Photo Pills website https://www.camerastuffreview.com/en/how-to-calculate-depth-of-field-hy… . This calculator is also available in the Photo Pills free app that is available for your smart phone.
Because we had a guest speaker the business meeting was shortened to the following:
- Austin Miller will be doing the February Workshop on Shooting HDR and Panoramas. There will be a Zoom meeting talking about shooting techniques and camera settings the week of Feb 8th, exact date and time will be send via club email. This will be followed by an outdoor shoot at Riverside park on Thursday Feb. 18th at 6:30 PM. We will be shooting night photos of the new bandstand and the river walk towards the bridge.
- John McCormack stated Kristi won a Merit Award at N4C in January.
- Brian announced our N4C judging of prints in January and March as been cancelled. However we will need judges for the April projected competition. We will be asking for judging volunteers shortly. Judging will take place over zoom.
