The lawns are beginning to recover from the past winter’s abuse. The flowers are beginning to sprout with a promise of colorful things to come. Even the spring / summer birds are coming back.

Speaking of the summer birds, The first meeting in May (5/7) we will have a presentation on “Bird Photography”. This presentation is being presented by the clubs premiere bird photographers, Linwood Riggs and Phil Downes. We can all learn some tips on photographing birds from this presentation.

 

This meeting is about photographing motion or portraying motion in a still photo.  This will be another full "hands on" meeting so bring your cameras, tripods, and mobile model.  Considering the weather, this will be an indoors event.

This will be another "all action" event.

Remember the doors open at 6:30 and the fun starts at 7:00.  See you at the Viles Conference Room, Viles Arboretum, 153 Hospital Street, Augusta,.

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
