Please join us Thursday June 6, 2013 at 7:30pm for Honors Night at Butler Longhorn Museum located at 1220 Coryell, League City, TX. The doors open early at 7:00pm for fellowship with guests and members. Snacks and soft drinks are provided by a club member. You can go here to find out more about the Honors program.
The assignment for June is "Connection". The photo had to be taken after March 01, 2013. This is another opportunity to compete for Photographer of the Year.
As usual, we also have the 'Open' category for photo submissions. All photos for submission in either category must be posted on the sign-up sheet no later than 7:20pm. This is so the Honors Night Director has time to enter them into the computer for a timely start of the meeting. Your dues must be current for this year in order to submit.
We look forward to all members and visitors joining us for the meeting at our new location.
- Peter Bowman took 1st place with “Nun and Her Teacher”.
- Nuwan Samaranayake took 2nd place with “Inner Focus”.
- Neal Kelsoe won an Honorable Mention with “Hang Time”.
The second part of Joe McNally's tips for shooting in hard light, put on by Adorama TV.
Sometimes you just don't have the opportunity to shoot in the early or late hour golden light. You get a late jump on your photo shoot and have to contend with shooting at midday. This means you have to contend with harsh flat light, shadows under the eyes and blown out backgrounds. In this Adorama TV video, Joe McNally gives some tips on how to handle that situation.
Though this is geared towards portrait photography, these tips can be applied to any type of shooting; whether portrait or macro /closeup photography. This is the first of a two part series.
