A FILM Photo Walk

21621838349_6b022bfc46_z

If you’re interested in a free chance to try shooting with film, Alexandra at Henry’s Kanata has asked us to pass along this invitation:

I promised I’d keep you all appraised of any events going on here at Kanata. We’ve got a fun one (I think anyways) coming up that some of your members might be interested in. A film photo walk!

It’s going to be on August 11th, 9am to ~ noon, at the Carp Farmers market. Like I said it’s free and Henry’s will be providing everyone with a free roll of film. We also have a few film cameras to lend out if someone wants to attend but doesn’t have, or no longer has, their own gear. Spots are slightly limited so people interested in attending should RSVP either to me through this email (Alexandra.leask@henrys.com) or by calling the store at 613-836-1016.

We think it’s going to be fun. It’s definitely going to be something different!

You may have noticed some changes we’ve made to your website. Hopefully we’ve made it easier to navigate and easier to search.

We’ll be changing the banner image periodically so members are encouraged to submit images cropped 1200 x 280.

We’ve changed our email address to:

If you find any broken links, please let us know so we can fix them.

There will be a presentation on the website at the September meeting.

Feedback is always appreciated.

Photographing Glass

Note that this article originally appeared in the May 2016 issue of the shutterBUG.

Photographing glass can be an exciting, and sometimes frustrating, exercise. When light strikes a glass object three different things can happen: 1-light can be transmitted; 2-it can be reflected; and 3-it can bend (refraction). These three unique properties of light need to be considered when attempting to photograph a glass object.

There are two main techniques for photographing glass. The overall goal of either technique is to define the contours at the edges of a glass object. Each technique is defined by the way light is seen at the edge of the glass, either as black lines or as white lines. Continue reading “Photographing Glass”

Portrait Workshop Reminder

A new day is dawning. The Portrait Workshop will be held Thursday, 31, May, at the Kanata Senior’s Centre, starting at 9:30 or before, if you are able to help with setup. We will be there from 9:00 – 2:30.

It is open to all camera club members either to help, to photograph or to take portraits. Timing is at your convenience; registration is not necessary; bring your camera; practice, learn, have fun, meet new friends

There will be five different portrait areas set up with different equipment. Come and experiment and see what works best for you.

Hope to see you there.

Beaverbrook Library Display

Front Shot rev1Thanks to Ed Lascelle for organizing, to Anne Jones for helping with the setup and the props (lovely glass pedestals), for Sue Carey for loaning the great old cameras, and to all who contributed images. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough space to use them all.

The display will be there until Monday June 11th.

The club has been invited  to provide a display for the fall  (early Oct for 2 weeks).

The library is very pleased with the display . This is great exposure for the club..
