The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will resume its regular monthly meeting schedule Wednesday evening, January 14, 2015 in the Pinon Room of the Quality Resort. Join us for socializing at 6:00 PM (drinks and appetizers are available for purchase), followed by the program and short business meeting at 6:30 PM.
The January Photography Club program will be presented by Al Olson. Al is a long-time member and past-President of the Club. He will address the eight critical elements that influence the sharpness of an image, where the details assert their individuality and where each detail is separate and distinct. Some elements that can cause lack of sharpness are under direct control of the photographer while others are affected by the quality of equipment. Examples will be used to show how sharpness (as well as depth of field) varies with lens focal length and with changes in aperture. Tips will be provided on how to capture good “Bokeh” (a function of some lenses), and there will be a brief review of lens design and what to look for when purchasing a lens.
Members are encouraged to bring 10 – 15 photographs of recent photo opportunities on a flash drive or CD, for review and discussion following the program, as time permits.
