The appearance of Missy Sparrow started off the February 3rd meeting. Missy is a biologist with the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources and is our contact for the club’s project to “Capture the Western Prairie.” Missy’s slide show and her enthusiasm is contagious and I can hardly wait to be involved. Lori and I have added more information on the project, so check out the 2016 Club Project page.
Just for Fun!
As the break ended, Michael Huber got us all lined up for a 360-degree group shot, using the Ricoh Theta S. How fun is that? Thanks, Michael! We can always count on you to show us the cutting edge in the photography world! (Michael is the one with rabbit ears.)

We have added two more mid-month meetings in response to what members have asked for in the club survey. On Sunday, March 20, 1:00-3:00 pm, Ted Johnston, our club’s flash expert, will have a “Lighting with Off Camera Flash” workshop. It will be a “hands-on” opportunity and more information will follow. On Wednesday April 20th Jeff Bucklew and Michael Huber will present “Photography 101” that covers all the basics.
The assignment for the May competition salon is “Shadows or Silhouettes”, and the deadline for entry is April 13. I sure hope to see the sun again soon… with all these grey days it’s hard to find either shadows or silhouettes. Check out the Club Assignments page for more information on how to capture silhouettes and to see all the other assignments for the year.
‘Bye for now!
