PHOTO CLUB MEETING PLANNING
by Don LeHeup
Here are some of my thoughts,
Do we need to have a “How To—“ presentation at every meeting? What about a “Show and Tell” Where one could give a presentation on a photographic experience they have had. I’m thinking of such things as Helen and Diane’s foray into Northern Nevada or J. and Dennis’ trip to the Ely Winterfest. Not to put them on the spot, but that type of thing.
Could we have a meeting of “Picture with a story”? The picture needn’t tell the story but what was your quest to get that particular picture. You needn’t have taken the picture, but it could be one from the family archives of how you fled across the Arctic Tundra ahead of a herd of bloodthirsty mosquitos or Uncle Smedley’s one day of sobriety. Something from the family lore, wedding, bar mitzvah, you name it. Is there a story behind the picture?
We have surveys of topics of possible interest. We should follow up on items that received several votes, but I think consideration should be given to things that might have received only one or two votes. A presentation on such could open one’s eyes to something else to try. One thing that will be addressed is Larry’s upcoming presentation on 3D photography. We stand to learn a bit about it and how we might give it a try. Another topic might be videos. Our cameras and Smart phones have video capabilities, but how do we go about using it? I’m sure one doesn’t just go out and start shooting. A talk on making a short 2-minute video might give one the courage for making a video without feeling it has to be a huge movie production. KISS usually works.
ONWARD AND UPWARD!!
