We will have a special meeting this month on Wednesday, February 19, 6:30 pm. It will feature “Compositing Nature and Wildlife Images” by Michelle Terrell. In her presentation, she will walk through the processing of three different kinds of images, including the photo featured here — a composite of the northern harrier in flight — to illustrate ways in which Photoshop layers can be used to combine multiple images into a single composite photograph. Michelle Terrell is a member of the St. Croix Valley Camera Club and an avid outdoor photographer. As a native Minnesotan, she enjoys documenting our state’s wide variety of natural subjects from tiny woodland fungi to horizon-spanning northern lights. She shared her enthusiasm for bird photography in a talk at the Western Wisconsin Photography Club in 2019. When not taking photos, she is a professional archaeologist and historian.
Member Spotlight on Matt Then
Collin Geraghty and Anastasia Shartin from the Phipps reached out to Matt Then last week to get his permission to use one of his photographs on the cover of their Summer Art Camp brochure. The photo is from their production of “Sleeping Beauty and The Beast.” This photo will appear on the brochure and on posters promoting the Summer Art Camp.
Matt says “I truly appreciate the opportunity to shoot their productions and am honored that they selected one of my photographs for their marketing materials. I would have never had this experience if it wasn’t for the Western Wisconsin Photography Club, so thank you!”
If you got out to capture photos from Hudson’s Hot Air Affair, or the trumpeter swans this weekend, send your images to firstname.lastname@example.org for a gallery.
