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.
At our November meeting, club member Debbie Pinard gave an excellent presentation on techniques for Intentional Camera Movement (ICM). For more hints, she recommendsICM Helpful Hints by Carlotta Dongar.
To see more of Debbie’s great images, check out her website.
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.
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!!
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.
