February Meeting
Feb 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our meeting will feature a Taz Tally workshop which we have downloaded from Lynda.com.  The workshop is entitled Exploring Composition.  Andy Lessard has offered to guide us through the portions that several club members have found relevant in a Lightroom interest group.

This link is to the document that is Andy’s summary of the course that could be used as a quick reference.

 

Our speaker Dave Hutchinson had to cancel due to the weather and road conditions.  He has offered to come back in the next few months.

We are pleased to have Dave Hutchison, an Accredited Nature and Pictoral / Scenic Photographer for a seminar on “Beyond the Basics of Wildlife Photography”.  Dave will share his experience from recent trips to The Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary, Yellowstone NP, Tetons NP, etc.  Check Dave’s website here.

Topics will include: composition, planning & research, and interactions we have with our equipment and environment.

Photography is a vast field that encompasses a wide variety of techniques to create that unique captivating image. Add to that the complicated camera gear and post processing techniques in today’s technology age.

Dave can help you make efficient use of your time and quickly learn techniques to tap into your creativity, figure out your camera gear, and create wonderful images.

With over 20 years of business experience, Dave has over 40 images published in books, magazines, calendars, art cards, and various gift products. Dave is continuously inspired by both landscape and wildlife photography and has photographed across Western Canada and the Yukon, eight Western US states and recently Europe.

We’ll start with the club business, then see the results of the assignment, the field trip and our favourite shots from January.

There will be coffee and tea at $1 but bring your own popcorn!

February Field Trip
Feb 9 @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am

Following another member suggestion we are going to the new Demex Wharehouse.  This is not the Demex store we went to previously but is on Price Road.  You can see it from the Alberni Highway and if coming from Parksville it is just before the Coop gas station.

We have over 20,000 square feet and two floors to explore.  The upstairs is set up with one main large area and several rooms off that area which are decorated in specific themes.

It should be a fun and very interesting

 

Lunch will be at the Bayside Bistro and Lounge at 12:00pm

240 Dogwood Street, Parksville BC
