August 17th Introduction into High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography
Meet at 7:00 at the Congregational Church. Dave McFarlane’s work in progress talk will show how to produce great looking photos where the light range is too extreme to be captured by one shot. Imagine shooting a photo in a dark room with fantastic details on the walls but also wanting to include the bright sunlit outside scene seen through the window. A normal photo would have the outside scene details blown out to show the inside.. or the inside would be very dark and lack detail to show the sunlit outside. The talk will show the tricks I have uncovered thru lessons, seminars and trial and error this past year that will show all how to capture these two extremes and produce a nice looking photo.
Send your best Birds in Flight photos to Dave McFarlane by August 10th and we will review and comment on what we see at this meeting.
September 21st Landscape Photography at Crown Colony.
The Crown Colony Golf Course in Fort Myers (South on Winkler off Summerlin) is one of the best golf courses in this area and has several opportunities for great open landscape photography. Sunset is at 7:25 PM Golden Hour is at 6:54 PM. We will meet at 4:00 PM at the club house, pick up golf carts and ride to previously selected sites that will have the best lighting. We will be able to use the carts until 6:00 PM. After returning the carts, we will then walk to photo sites that will have golden hour and sunset lighting opportunities and are within walking distances from the club.
We can stop for light snacks and drinks in the club house after we are done.
Please email email@example.com by September 17, so I can set up reservations. There may be a minor charge $10 for the use of carts and to keep a staff member after hours. I will let you know.
