ARTIST BIO My past has taken me in many different directions. From Real Estate and Interior Design, to desktop publishing, writing and editing, home building, project management, and event organizing to name a few. I have always wanted to be a photographer. One boring rainy day in 2011, I ventured out and purchased my first DSLR and just started pushing the shutter button.
M-Y-N-D in Icelandic means photo or image. ‘MYND’S I’ is the name of my photography site. I like that a photograph is made, not taken. It is made in your own mind and with your own eye, and it is slow and considered in its making. I believe that anyone can take a photo, but it takes a discerning eye, a sense of what is around you and a comprehension of how everything is reacting to the surrounding light sources to make a picture. Without light, photography would not exist. In fact light is the true subject of every photograph.Continue reading “Ginny Fobert”
The City of Ottawa supports our camera club by providing us with space and equipment. However, we do not receive any funding from them to support our club. The club operates on donations from volunteers and other sources.
This year we have had additional expenses to operate our website and image storage costs on our website. In October we received a donation from the Kanata Seniors Council to operate our website for this fiscal season. We recently approached the Craft Group in the Seniors Centre and they agreed to pay for image storage costs associated with maintaining the member images on our club website. We are hoping that the Craft Group will support us yearly with donations to support our website and image storage costs.
We wish to give a big THANK YOU to the Craft Group for their generous donation.
The Craft Group will be having a sale at the Christmas Dinner at the Kanata Seniors Centre on December 13th. They will have about 6 tables of homemade items, socks, mitts, scarves, hats, sweaters and miscellaneous Christmas items. Please support the Craft Group by dropping by and you might just find a Christmas present or two.
Flyers for the Craft Sale are available in the front office.
The Canadian Museum of History is presenting an exhibition on William Notman from November 23, 2018 – April 14, 2019. Quoting from their website:
Experience 19th century Canada through the lens of a pioneer of photography. See the iconic images produced by William Notman (1826–1891), the first Canadian photographer to gain an international reputation.
Introducing a modern approach to photography, Notman created some of our most stunning windows onto the past. Through 300 vintage prints and objects from the McCord Museum, this exhibition presents a comprehensive portrait of Victorian Canada and celebrates the innovation and artistry of the man who captured it.
Details on how to register for a tour of the exhibition, lead by Notman experts, can be found here.
Your images for the assignment must be emailed by noon on Friday, October 26th to be included in the slide show. For details on how to submit photos including formats and titles go to our How to Submit page.
The next assignment is Wet and pictures from this assignment will be shown at the December 7th meeting.
The featured speaker at our meeting on November 2nd will be Sandy Sharkey.
Sandy is a former Ottawa radio announcer who is now pursuing her favourite passion: photographing wild horses. She has photographed horses in Mongolia, Costa Rica, and France. In 2018 Sandy embarked on a 67 day road trip to capture images of wild mustangs in the American southwest. She is immensely proud of our Canadian wild horses, having visited Sable Island five times to photograph the iconic horses off the coast of Nova Scotia. In conjunction with Help Alberta Wildies, Sandy documented the magnificent horses living wild and free in Alberta’s Rocky Mountain foothills.
Sandy’s limited edition prints of wild horses can be found in homes and businesses throughout North America, and can be custom ordered at her website. You can also follow Sandy on social media at Facebook, Twitter (@sandysharkey), and Instagram (sandysharkeyphotography).
