Cancelled - Program Night, Thursday September 18th

Cancelled Due to Flooding!!!

Please join us Thursday September 18, 2014 at 7:30pm for Program Night at Butler Longhorn Museum located at 1220 Coryell, League City, TX.  The doors open early at 7:00pm for fellowship and snacks/drinks with guests and members. 

This week’s program will be a follow-up to our July program, when Larry Patrick and I talked about portraiture. During our discussion that night both Larry and I referenced Peter Hurley, who is a well-known head shot photographer with offices in New York and Los Angeles. He has a very personable style and a unique and commanding approach to getting facial expressions and emotions from his portrait subjects, many of whom are actors and models.  Even though he shoots with a Hasselblad and Keno Flo lights, which no one in our club will probably ever use, I think his approach to working with a portrait subject is really outstanding.

For our meeting on Thursday night we’ll be watching excerpts from his very popular DVD, the Art of the Head Shot, with some discussion in between scenes. For more information about Peter Hurley, please see the links to his web site below. Hope to see everyone Thursday night.

Member in the News - Larry Armer

From Larry Armer:

An image of mine, taken on our Bay Area Photo Club field trip to Brenham several years ago, is featured on the cover of the newly released summer edition of Capital Farm Credit’s glossy magazine “Landscapes.” It’s a quarterly publication that features excellent photography and reminds me a little of “Texas Highways” magazine.  I wasn’t familiar with it until they contacted me.  In learning more about it, I became impressed with its quality.  I consider it an honor to be in the company of other photographers who have been selected for the cover spot. 

You can learn more about the magazine at, although it hasn’t been updated with the summer issue yet.

Larry Armer

Note from Doug: The image used was from a Bay Area Photo Club field trip to Brenham, Tx to photograph bluebonnets in April 2010.  If you click on the link in the previous sentence you will note the original was in landscape orientation.  They used a portrait rendition, to good effect, for their cover. 

The magazine actually contacted Larry about the photo.  So, you never know what may come of your photos or where they may lead you.  Field trips are a good way to shoot things you might not otherwise try to capture.  Who knows, you might make the cover of a magazine.

Next time you see Larry, make a point to ask him about it and congratulate him.

Color Scheme Designer

There was some discussion at our December 5 meeting about the upcoming assignment “complementary colors” for January. Steve Schuenke mentioned a web-based tool called Color Scheme Designer, an interactive color wheel. Below is the link to the web site along with a tutorial on complementary colors where it is used on Phlearn.
