Here are some of the activities we are planning this spring and summer for the Photography Club:
April 11: For our monthly meeting, Doug Coombs (http://www.dougsview.com/) will give us a presentation on tips for using Adobe Lightroom’s library module to import and organize photos on your computer.
May 9: Andy Butler will discuss techniques for night sky photography, particularly Milky Way photography. Later in the season, we plan to have a club outing to do this type of photography.
June 13: Randy McCormick will give a program “Sea to Summit—we’re all connected,” a photographic journey to the western Everglades on the southwest coast of Florida. If we look closely, we can see that many of the fundamental characteristics that underlie intact natural ecosystems are similar and can be experienced everywhere, whether in Florida or along the Continental Divide
Watch for our upcoming digital photo contest. We will officially announce the contest and rules by early summer, with submission around the first of August and display of the winners and other entrees at our September meeting.
Outings that we are working on include a photo shoot of the Cumbres & Toltec rail yard, a trip to the ghost town of Summitville and one or more summer outings for mountain scenery and wildflowers. Ideas for outings are always welcome!
