MEMBERS ATTENDED - (16 at DV and 2 on Zoom) 18 Total

*Norm - Welcome and Introduced Speaker - Marc Wiseman, Topic "Composition".
Marc began "My Journey through Composition".... Photographs of fish & sharks through protective cages in Mexico, adding drama, using low key backgrounds. Mandarin fish and shrimp from Zanzibar. Seahorse was taken at night was gorgeous. Elegance using high key backgrounds and over exposure to make subjects stand out, in Africa. Using strobe lights for night underwater shots....takes luck to get the right angle of the subject. Marc showed many excellent techniques underwater that made the fish really beautiful! Great Program!

* Quick Bytes by Marc Wiseman - Star Trails - takes 120 photos in one hour. Takes a lot of planning. Easy to do with post processing. Be sure to dress warm, tripod a must, remote timer needed, camera on manual setting with long exposure - 30sec, ISO settings adjust as needed. Uses Light Room for post processing, then sets up Star Stax which puts the stars together. Marc sent the presentation with links on You tube for us!
