Ed Luinstra will be presenting on Macro Photography on Friday, April 14th.
Ed is a recent transplant from Calgary and arrived here in Kanata a year and a half ago. This is his first year in the Kanata Seniors Centre Camera Club. He is having a great time meeting new people and photographically exploring his new surroundings.
Ed has been doing photography since his teen years. He is of a technical bent and spent many hours in the darkroom back in the film days. He enjoys shooting landscapes, people, abstracts and many other subjects. In the last few years, he has concentrated on nature subjects, especially birds and anything else he comes across in the wilds. Some years ago, Ed became interested in macro photography, something that appealed to his technical side. He spends many summer days prowling in weedy fields looking for bugs to photograph.
We tried the “Free Table” at the December 2022 meeting and, despite short notice, it was successful. We will repeat that event at the March 3rd meeting. You can bring in surplus photo equipment, accessories, books or magazines which other members can take. The only proviso is that, if your item is not taken, please take it with you after the meeting.
The above photo was previously submitted by one of our members, Jay-Dee Purdie.
At our February meeting, Ross Laing introduced Every Picture Tells a Story as a new way for club members to share special images and memories. He and Ron Pierce both shared pictures and the stories that made them significant.
A photograph captures a moment in time. The meaning of a photograph is often ambiguous without context — there is a time leading up to the fraction of a second when the shutter opens, the instant the image is taken, and what takes place right after the shutter closes. Ultimately, every picture tells a story.
For everyone, particular photographs become special and iconic.
You are asked to select ONE photograph of personal significance to you and tell the “Before, During, and After” of the image, taking about 5 minutes to provide a narrative about why that moment and that picture’s story are important to you.
If you would like to present your “Every Picture Tells a Story” image and its story, please email it to email@example.com. The deadline for submitting images is the same as the monthly challenge images.
Ginny Fobert, an accomplished fine art photographer, will give a presentation entitled “From Then Until Now” at the March 3 rd meeting of the Kanata Seniors Centre Camera Club (KSCCC).
Ginny has always been interested in photography. In recent years, she has focused primarily on fine art photography. Once told that photography was not art, her goal has been to bring photography further into the art world using unique photographic techniques. She believes that a photograph is made, not taken.
“Photography is made in your own mind and with your own eye. It is slow and considered in its making. It can indeed be art”. Ginny has had numerous solo shows and has been involved in multiple art festivals and exhibitions within the city of Ottawa and across Ontario.
