Special Meeting this month on the 15th!
After being wowed by the wedding photos of a friend, Ted Johnston contacted the photographer, Benjamin Wilson, about his making a presentation to our club. Benjamin accepted and will be at a special mid-month meeting on February 15, 7:00 pm. His program is “Creativity Reboot”. Benjamin’s web site is at Wilson Aesthetics and you can also find him on Facebook. Please note the special time (7:00 pm) and location (the theater) inside the Phipps. On your way to the theater be sure to check out Michael Huber’s cast photos for the Children’s Theater production of “Peter Pan”.
I don’t think that wedding photography is in my future, but one of our assignments this year is “Humanity”, and I’m looking forward to the inspiration and tips.
Registration for Spring Break is now open!
Spring Break will be held on March 25, 2017, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount, MN. It will be a one-day event this year including a full day of programs, with a variety of great speakers to choose from. The $40 registration fee will include lunch, coffee breaks, photo vendors, special shooting opportunities, door prizes, and the Interclub awards. One of my favorite things about this event is the camaraderie of being with old and new photography friends. Full details of the speaker lineup will soon be completed and will be posted on the Camera Council website. Here is the online Registration Link.
Just for Fun
Did you know that N4C has a photo essay contest? N4C’s definition of a photo essay is “is a series of projectable images accompanied by music and/or a narrative which tell an integrated story presented in a pleasing and understandable manner.” In other words, a slide show. Two years ago, I submitted one and it got kicked to the curb and rolled down the gutter! The good thing is that I got some valuable feedback and last year I sent a draft to Dwight Corrin, who is the Photo-Essay Chair. He gave me some suggestions and my entry earned an Honorable Mention last year. Since the deadline for entry is March 31, I’ve been working on a new essay. Here is my first draft:
See you on the 15th!
