March 1 Meeting
At our March 1 meeting John Gregor will present his program “From Concept to Print”. He will discuss the evolution of his recent work, his approach to the photographic medium, and how and why he does what he does. Over the last year he has transitioned from the traditional digital landscape photographer’s full frame DSLR camera to the Fujifilm X-T2 which features the smaller sized APS-C Xtrans sensor. He will take you through his entire process from capture to print and will discuss how and why he uses filters for his landscape images. He will tell us why he chose the Fujifilm system, and he will discuss how his workflow has transitioned to the new mirrorless system. He’ll also let us what he has liked and not liked about the new camera system. If you want to learn about a comprehensive photographic approach, or if you are considering a mirrorless system don’t miss this informative presentation.
John’s business is Coldsnap Photography where he leads nature and travel photography workshops, with his home base in Two Harbors, Minnesota. This will be John’s second appearance at our club. Last year’s program was “The Art of the Fine Art Print”, which was awesome. I’m subscribed to his newsletter that comes out about once a month that includes information that interests me as a photographer. He is also on Facebook.
As always, the meeting will begin at 6:30 pm in the River Room at the Phipps Center for the Arts.
On Sunday, March 19, at 2:00 pm, our club will be judging prints for N4C. I expect there will be about 45 nature and black and white prints in total, so it shouldn’t take much more than an hour. I could use three or four more people to help, mostly to record scores and comments and to handle the prints. We will get started at 2:00 pm. This is an opportunity to contribute that won’t take much of your time. Please let me know if you can help.
