One of the best sources of inspiration is to look at art and in particular to look at other photographer’s work. The same building that houses the Kanata Seniors Centre also houses the Kanata Civic Gallery which displays the excellent work of many local artists (including camera club member and Mentor Ann Williams). Two of the artists are photographers.
Karen is new to the gallery and has 3 large pieces hanging in the show currently on display. To see more of her work, go to her personal web site.
RicharD is a resident of Beaverbrook and participates in the Kanata Artists Studio tour to be held April 30th and May 1st. To see more of RicharD’s work go to his personal web site.
If you enjoyed the beautiful images in the album Ian Buchanan showed off at the February 5th Camera Club meeting, you can see more by going to his web site. Hopefully they’ll inspire you to come out to the Old Quarry Trail club “shoot out” later in February. Stay tuned here for the date and time (and a map).
Marg Jackman found this great National Geographic wildlife video from 2012. Be sure to watch it in full screen mode with the sound turned on. Lots of beautiful images.
About once a week, the photo editors at the Boston Globe put together a collection of brilliant images from around the world that they call The Big Picture.
Sometimes they focus on a single story for example: Perseid meteor shower. Sometimes the images are a collection like this story: 2015 Year in Pictures: Animals. Often they cover news events like: Paris attacks.
If you’re looking for inspiration take a look at this blog.
Come to the Centre Wednesday afternoon January 13th from 1:00 to 3:00 in the Program Room. Bring your camera, its manual, and your tripod (if you have one).
Visit our several “learning stations” where you’ll be able to experiment with:
- aperture priority
- shutter priority
- manually fix focus
- spot metering
- exposure compensation
- using a soft box
Alan Mirabelli, who gave us such a great presentation last March, is showing his photographs at the Ottawa Art Gallery.
Hopefully these images, which were recognized for their excellence by the photo editors at National Geographic, will inspire you to take great photos in 2016. Thanks to Fraser Campbell for suggesting them.
