On Jan 22nd, we had a great meeting in the library where we worked on close up/macro photography. Members brought in items such as seashells, toys, stained glass and feathers. It was fun seeing everyone use the lightboxes and other tools to make some cool photos.
Due to some scheduling conflicts with the library, we have some odd dates for our meetings in February. Our first meeting will be on Monday, the 12th. Tim Boyles will be our speaker. He was one of the judges for our last competition. He focuses on “people” photography (weddings/portraits/etc). You can see some of Tim’s work on his website. The meeting starts at 7:15pm at the Hollidaysburg Library.
The library is closed on the 15th, so we’ve moved our second January meeting to the 22nd. We’ll be in the Children’s Room. It’ll be close-up/macro night. Bring your camera! And if you have small items that you think might make for interesting photos, bring those along. We’ll have flowers, toys, and other knick-knacks to shoot. Feel free to bring small lights, backdrops, etc. to help out with staging photos. It all starts at 7:15pm at the Hollidaysburg Libary.
The Hollidaysburg Library is closed on January 1st, so we’ve moved our meeting to the 8th. We’ll be in the community room at 7:15pm. Brandon Hirt will give a presentation on winter landscape photography.
Our last meeting of the year is tomorrow evening. We’ll be in the Hollidaysburg Area Library at 7:15pm. It’s our annual business/planning meeting. We’ll be electing officers and getting ideas for next year’s programs.
On December 4th, we’ll have our annual club Christmas dinner. We’ll be at Jethro’s in Altoona. The plan is to start at 6 pm.
Monday’s meeting is our annual “What’s new in the world of camera gear” meeting at The Film Center in Altoona. Britt will show us some of the latest and greatest in cameras and accessories. The meeting starts at 7pm.
