A quick timelapse while eating lunch by the St Croix River. GoPro on an egg timer mechanism. One shot every 2 seconds played back at 24 frames per second.
Our next meeting is Wednesday October 1st, 6:30 PM. Our guest speaker is photographer Erin Johnson. Erin will discuss how she prepares and sets up a shoot along with a variety of pointers on photographing people. UPDATE!!!! IF TIME ALLOWS… Erin will critique member images after the break. Please email a shot or two you would like feedback on to firstname.lastname@example.org. Erin specializes in weddings and portraits so it may make sense to send those types of images though anything is fair game! These will not be officially judged and scored – just an open critique, off-the-cuff, as they are projected on screen.
We just wrapped up our successful exhibition at the Phipps! This was a great opportunity to showcase our member talent. The Phipps is also looking for volunteers to help man their booth at the St. Croix Art Festival this weekend. Time slots are Saturday 9AM – 1PM, 1PM – 5PM and on Sunday from 9AM – 1PM. Please contact the Anastasia at the Phipps if you can pitch in!
I believe member Lori Moilanen is still looking for more people to photograph the Willow River Trail Challenge that is happening at Willow River State Park on October 4th. HERE is a link to more information. Please talk with Lori at the meeting or send me an email through the contact page and I will forward on your interest.
The Photo Club’s Advisory Committee is meeting this week to review this past year and discuss thoughts for the upcoming year. If any of the members have strong opinions (successful or not) of things we have done this past year, please email me via the contact page so I can relay that information to the committee.
There will be a vote for Club Officers in November so please consider volunteering to help keep the Club moving forward. We are only as strong as our members! I will review the positions/responsibilities at the October meeting.
Tour October 15th, 6:30 PM! Marnie Marie Photography recently moved into the former Elan clothing store space in downtown Hudson. Marnie specializes in portrait photography with a personal mission to capture timeless images of people and families. She wants each piece to tell a story – more then just being a trendy or technically successful portrait. She will give us a little tour of her retail area, work area and studio as well as answer questions we may have about equipment and the business side of photography. It will be fun to see her giant softboxes and other gear, how she presents to clients and just her philosophy on portrait photography.
And… I was contacted by the ‘How to Wow’ tour coming to Minneapolis on October 14th. Professional photographer Jerry Ghionis will be covering posing, lighting, and expression in portrait; including wedding and fashion photography. It’s a really hands on workshop, with professional models and photo sets attendees can shoot. Members of our Club are eligible for a discount. HERE is a link for more information. Our discount code is HTWWWP for $10 off any of the 3 ticket options.
