Chuck Desjardins on YouTube

During his presentation for Henry’s, Chuck Desjardins mentioned that he has a YouTube channel. You can find it here. It includes slideshows of his travel photography, other slideshows, and videos he calls “Playing With…” which are mini-reviews.

Kanata’s Beaver Pond II

Phil Tughan was inspired by Javier’s recommendation to shoot at Kanata’s Beaver Pond and reports:

To add to the info on the Beaver Pond, go to the pond by going to the end of Walden Drive at the east end of the pond. The parking lot is completely closed, but you can easily park on the road. The best photography is along the paved walkway along the south side and at the east end of the pond. The western half is marsh and not accessible.

I have attached some Blue Heron photos that I took early in the morning after Javier’s great presentation. These were taken at the east end of the pond at the water’s edge. 

Thanks for sharing Phil

Kanata’s Beaver Pond

In Javier’s excellent presentation last week he featured Kanata’s Beaver Pond.

In case club members don’t know, it’s located here. We’re not sure about the status of the parking lot at the east end.

This map details some of the walking trails in the area.

The images at the top of this post were submitted by club members for our November 2013 monthly asignment. To see more, go here.

iPhone Camera Apps

This article The Best iPhone Camera Apps of 2021 from the PetaPixel blog details 7 of the best photography apps in the following categories:

  • Professional iPhone Camera App
  • All-in-One iPhone Camera App
  • Free iPhone Camera App
  • iPhone Camera App for Filters
  • iPhone Photo Editing App
  • iPhone Accessory App for Stills and Video
  • iPhone Camera App for Filmmaking

Club member Anne Jones agrees that these are all useful apps but says:

I have looked up each of the apps in the App Store. It’s not a pretty picture. Almost all the reviews are poor, not because of the app itself but because of the ever increasing Subscription model. This is what I have found also. I guess this is why I go less and less to the outside apps. You are either constantly bothered with ads or features won’t work unless you PAY UP!!

Bird Photograpy

Three Babies by Ian Bartlett

On the National Audubon Society’s website there is an article on How to use Lighting and Angles to Take Better Bird Photos

At the end of this article, Audubon states: William H. Majoros has been studying birds and bird behavior for more than 20 years. This article is adapted from his online reference guide, Secrets of Digital Bird Photography: Tools and Techniques.

Links from March 5th Meeting

In Manfred’s presentation he mentioned this paper on Evaluating the Rule of Thirds in Photographs and Paintings.

Sue Carey sent along this excerpt from Freeman Patterson’s newsletter:

I’d also like to draw your attention to www.earthisourwitness.com, produced by Parimal Deshpande and hosted by him and the internationally-renowned photographer, Art Wolfe, both from Seattle. This is a series of stimulating conversations with photographers from around the world, selected by Art and centred on some of their images. The series is a work-in-progress; you can view those already filmed and there are more to come. Don’t miss the compelling conversation with Wade Davis, the Canadian anthropologist and photographer, who was explorer-in-residence at National Geographic for several years. (My conversation on SYMBOLS and MEANING will be recorded March 2. View live on http://www.facebook.com/earthisourwitness, on http://www.instagram.com/earthisourwitness, and live or for up to a year on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/EARTHISOURWITNESS.)
