We meet again Tuesday November 20th, 7PM at Viles Arboretum, 153 Hospital St. Augusta.

It's almost turkey time.  But before we stuff ourselves we will delve into the black arts of Black and White photography.  Yes it is time to explore Black and White images.  B&W photography is still relevant in "modern" photography.

Our members will display digital and / or printed images in this wonderful color space. There will be a discussion of how the convert your color digital images to B&W. And how to create exceptional images from the conversion process.  This will be an event you won't want to miss.

Also for those who were to submit photographs for the Maine General hospital exhibition this is the night to bring them in. The photographs will be placed on display by the end of November.  Make sure you have them matted, framed and a wire attached for mounting at the show.

 

I hope to see you there.

  Nov 6th is election day.  After the stress of the election season and doing your duty by voting come to our meeting and relax.  We will be celebrating the colors of Autumn. Our members will bring in up to 10 images of the colors of autumn.  This is entirely left to the interpretation of the photographer.  This should be interesting and a learning experience.

Also the Capital Area Camera Club is having an exhibition of photos at the Maine General hospital starting at the end of November.  If you are interested in showing your work please see Steve Dunn at the meeting for details.  As for those who are signed up to display at the exhibition please remember that Steve is collecting the prints Nov. 20th so have your prints ready.

The meeting Oct 2nd is scheduled to be a "hands on" session on "night photography".  Considering my luck with the weather we will have a indoors back up program. The back up program will be a "Question and Answer" session.

So bring your camera and tripod. Also bring your questions.

There will be a discussuion on a photo trip for foliage and a photo trip to Pemaquid Lighthouse for some night astro photography.

We will also be a discussion on a night photo session on Water Street and the Kennebec River.

See you Tuesday.

For this meeting we have the pleasure of presenting Dave Dostie.  Dave is a local resident and former member of CACC.  He has traveled extensively as a paid photographer working for several interests including Maine Life magazine to make beautiful images of the scenes and events he is assigned to cover.  Many of you may have seen his photos on Facebook where he publishes his images very often.  This should be a chance to find out what it is like to be behind the camera and work as a travel photographer.

A quote from Dave."I was asked to speak at the Capital Area Camera Club tomorrow evening on my experience as a photographer navigating assignment-based work, the techniques & gear I rely on, and my approach to creating images that tell a story whether I’m local or adventuring the world. I’d invite anyone who has an interest in photography to come tomorrow (Tuesday 10/16) @ 7pm at the Viles Arboretum. I plan to hold an interactive presentation and do my best to answer any questions you may have. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned professional; all are welcome!!"

Using Infrared to Interpret the Subject There is a certain mystery that comes through with Infrared that is not found with color or traditional black and white.

Ron speaks at the Capital Area Camera Club on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 7:00pm.

"For me, the beauty of photography is in the interpretation of subject matter, not in the attempt at representing the 'reality' of subject matter, an impossible goal. My photographs are an attempt to understand the process of creation. They represent a personal search for answers to which the questions as well as the answers are wordless. I regard photography not just as a way of seeing but as a way of living, a search or an exploration."

 

Please note, the meeting normally scheduled for Sept 18th has been rescheduled to Sept 25th to accomodate Ron's presentation.
