The Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera
Club is run completely by volunteers and needs your help.
We are looking for a couple more
members to sit on the executive committee, as well as, members that can assist
with other club activities. Many different types of skills and abilities
are required, however, for some activities (e.g. backup the webmaster) computer
skills are required. It is not necessary that you be an expert in
photography and training can be provided.
Without volunteers the Kanata
Seniors’ Centre Camera Club would not exist. Please consider
volunteering and, depending on the activity, the time commitment can be less
than a few hours a month.
If you are interested, or want additional information, please send an email to email@example.com, or speak to one of the executive members at the next camera club meeting on February 1st.
The Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club Executive
Robert Allan, a new club member sent along this link about photographing the upcoming total lunar eclipse on Sunday evening January 20th. He also provided a link to this page which shows the local start, maximum and end times.
To plan your photography, remember that The Photographers Ephemeris – available for web, Android, and iOS – will show you moonrise and set azimuths for your location.
If you get any images of the eclipse that you want to share with the club, email them to us here and we’ll put them on the website.
Ko Fung sent a link to this Global news item on the eclipse which includes a time lapse video of a lunar eclipse and explains why this is a super blood wolf moon.
The feature speaker at our meeting on January 4th will be Denis Rule who will speak on composition.

Now that the winter weather has finally arrived, it’s time to grab your camera, head outside and take some fantastic winter photographs of blowing snow, frozen water and dim light. Maybe not! Perhaps you would rather cozy up to a nice warm fire with a cup of hot chocolate. Then why not grab your camera and explore the fascinating world of indoor photography.
This year we are offering a Biweekly Photo Challenge. This Challenge is open to all KSCCC Members. You are all encouraged to participate. Any type of camera and any type of post-processing technique can be used.
Topics (see the Winter 2019 Photo Challenge table below) can be photographed either indoors or outdoors. Each topic addresses a unique subject. Each topic may inspire you to take a photograph in a different way using different techniques.
All you need to do is photograph one subject in a two-week period and send your one photo to us by the due date. If you can’t send in a photo for a particular two-week period, try to send us what you can during the course of the Challenge. The goal is to try something new that may inspire you.
In the subject line (where # is replaced with the appropriate photo number).
Photo challenges are a great way to look at new subjects in unique ways and to try different techniques. Inspiration can often be found in the most mundane subject.
During the Challenge period, all submitted photos will be posted in special galleries linked from the Winter Challenge page under Pictures on our website. At the end of the Challenge, photos will be compiled into a video that will be shown at our meeting.
If you have any questions, please contact me by email.
