A “Blast from the past” is occurring on March 19th. We revisit a program from last year that was very popular and requested to be done again. It will be “Macro Night”. This time much less talk and more “hands on” time. So bring your camera as appropriate lens that you may have (it doesn’t have to be a true Macro lens), a subject, a tripod and lights. The lights can be florescent, Tungsten, or LED and perhaps a reflector to bounce light and / or soften the lighting of your subject. Remember Leah’s presentation Feb. 19th?

6D 19185 640 copyThe meeting March 5th has two purposes. The first is a chance to have your images critiqued. Perhaps you have some images that you think have potential but can’t find the right thing to make them work. This is your chance to get advice from seasoned eyes on getting just the right touch to make the images work. The second purpose is to collect images for a possible gallery show at the Harlow Gallery next year. Steve Dunn is putting a presentation to have the CACC present a show in the Harlow next year. He needs some images to show the quality of our work. The theme of this show is “Visions of Maine”, it comes as the State begins its celebration of the 200th anniversary of our becoming a state. So if you have some images featuring the state of Maine bring them, have them critiqued and used in the application presentation.

So members bring is digital images or prints for the critique.

See you Tuesday at Viles Arboretum.  The doors open at 6:30 for a social time.  The meeting will start at 6:00 PM


Feb 5th is our nature competition.The top ten images from this competition go to the Glennie Competition. This year we will set aside some time at the beginning of the evening to help those who are unsure about which of several of their images are the best to submit for the competition. This will be done off to one side, not in front of the rest of the members. Hopefully this will being in more images to the competition.

As always the meeting starts at 7 PM with a chat time to get aquainted at 6:30 PM.  We are meeting at Viles Arboretum, 153 Hospital Street, Augusta.

This program is presented by Leah Haraden.

In this stripped down basic headshot lighting class, you will learn how to be creative using just one external light source. 

Keeping things simple, is a great way to learn lighting. The more confident you are in yourself and your skills, the better you will be able to set your subject at ease. Participants should bring their DSLR camera and a portrait lens (at least 50mm or longer) I will have some lighting and triggering equipment with me for those that need it. I hope that I will have two or more (one male, one female) volunteers for the demonstration piece of my presentation. After that, you will be invited to practice on yourself and other club members using my tips and instructions. You may go home with a new headshot of yourself or some to add to your portfolio.

Odie 2The January 29th meeting will be held at the Renaissance Gallery (next to Dunkin Donuts) on Main Street in Farmingdale.  We will have a professional explaination on mounting, matting and framing your printed photographs.

This should be of interest to long time photographers as well as novices.  There are a lot of techncal but straight forward tips and techniques involved in this process. This will have something of interest for all.

I hope to see you there for this interesting presentation.

The meeting starts at 7 PM
