Our June meeting is our Member’s Day and it is dedicated to you, our members. For this meeting we will have Ask a Question and be presenting Member Slideshows. We are all looking forward to seeing your photographs and videos, and to your continued active participation in the activities of our club.
Ask a Question
We are going to attempt something a little different for part of our June meeting. It’s your turn to “Ask a Question”. Perhaps you have a question such as “What is an f/stop and why should I care?”, “What is dodge and burn and how to I use it?”, “How do I photograph the milky way?”, “Where is the best place to photograph orchids?”, “How can I help make our club even better?”
Ramin Izadpanah will be giving an inspiring presentation entitled “Confessions of a Photographer”, chronicling his personal journey as a photographer.
Ramin is a well known, accomplished photographer, having spent many years perfecting his personal style in several photographic genres. His accomplishments include local and national publications, Canadian Geographic Awards, judging photographic submission for the City of Ottawa Art Gallery, as well as judging for local photography clubs.
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 email@example.com with details.

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.
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.)
