At the March Camera Club meeting, we introduced a new approach for the Fix my Pic feature of the club meetings – one where members would submit a before and after of one of their images and provide a verbal explanation at the meeting of what steps they had taken to complete their project.
Email your before and after images to firstname.lastname@example.org. Rename images to Fix My Pic1 your name.jpg and Fix My Pic2 your name.jpg. Include a description of what you did to change the image.
All submissions must be emailed no later than noon on Friday, April 30th to be presented at the May 7th meeting.
The monthly meeting will be held online on April 9th at 9:15 a.m. using Google Meet. For information on how to use Google Meet for our meetings go here. A link to the meeting will be posted on our website the morning of April 8th.
Meting date was corrected from April 2 to April 9.
Stephen J. Stephen will be presenting “The Wildlife of Ottawa”, an overview of the wonderful and varied natural subjects that can be found in the greater capital region at our meeting on April 9th at 9:15 a.m.
Stephen graduated with a B.Sc from the University of New Brunswick and, after working for a couple of years, obtained his M.Sc. from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
Stephen had been doing 35mm film photography for many years when he moved to digital photography in 2005. He has since focussed his photographic efforts on wildlife with birds being his main subjects. His knowledge of his subjects allows him to capture and share some of nature’s beauty and behaviour through his images.

During her presentation Karen also showed us how to take pictures using Frozen Bubbles. Here are the instructions to make them:
Frozen Bubbles – Mix together 200 ml of warm water, 35 ml corn syrup, 35 ml dish soap and 2 tbsp sugar. – For bubbles to freeze before they pop the temperature needs to be well below freezing. Ideal conditions are -25 degrees C with no wind. – Using a straw, gently blow bubbles onto snow or whatever surface you choose. Grab your camera and start shooting as ice patterns begin to form and before the bubbles break!
