A FILM Photo Walk


If you’re interested in a free chance to try shooting with film, Alexandra at Henry’s Kanata has asked us to pass along this invitation:

I promised I’d keep you all appraised of any events going on here at Kanata. We’ve got a fun one (I think anyways) coming up that some of your members might be interested in. A film photo walk!

It’s going to be on August 11th, 9am to ~ noon, at the Carp Farmers market. Like I said it’s free and Henry’s will be providing everyone with a free roll of film. We also have a few film cameras to lend out if someone wants to attend but doesn’t have, or no longer has, their own gear. Spots are slightly limited so people interested in attending should RSVP either to me through this email ( or by calling the store at 613-836-1016.

We think it’s going to be fun. It’s definitely going to be something different!



Website Updates

You may have noticed some changes we’ve made to your website. Hopefully we’ve made it easier to navigate and easier to search.

We’ll be changing the banner image periodically so members are encouraged to submit images cropped 1200 x 280.

We’ve changed our email address to:

If you find any broken links, please let us know so we can fix them.

There will be a presentation on the website at the September meeting.

Feedback is always appreciated.

Photographing Glass

Note that this article originally appeared in the May 2016 issue of the shutterBUG.

Photographing glass can be an exciting, and sometimes frustrating, exercise. When light strikes a glass object three different things can happen: 1-light can be transmitted; 2-it can be reflected; and 3-it can bend (refraction). These three unique properties of light need to be considered when attempting to photograph a glass object.

There are two main techniques for photographing glass. The overall goal of either technique is to define the contours at the edges of a glass object. Each technique is defined by the way light is seen at the edge of the glass, either as black lines or as white lines. Continue reading “Photographing Glass”
