Help Required for Member Meetings

Do you think you could be a featured presenter at one of our camera club meetings?  Do you know anyone who might like to volunteer to present at one of our meetings?

At this time every year, the Executive of the Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club looks for presenters for Member Meetings for the following year. It gets more difficult each year to find speakers who wish to volunteer their time to speak to our camera club.  As we try to put together a series of  interesting and educational club meetings, we are always on the lookout for new materials and presenters.

If you know of someone, or if you would  do a presentation yourself, please forward an email to contact@ksccc.ca with details.

Thank you for your assistance

Stephen J. Stephen Presenting in April

Meting date was corrected from April 2 to April 9.

Stephen by Jim Cumming

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.

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.)

Karen Bell’s Presentation and Frozen Bubbles Recipe

You can view Karen Bell’s presentation on Creative In-Camera Photography from our meeting on February 5th, 2021 by clicking here.

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!
