Destination Jasper

A reminder to all members that January’s photo outing is on tap for tomorrow – January 17th.  The destination is Jasper – quite likely Maligne Canyon and possibly other spots as the spirits and light moves us.  The plan is to depart from the west Tim Hortons at 6:30am.  This is an early start but gets us into the park in time for some early light.  While the temperatures here are cold, tomorrow’s forecast for Jasper is a daytime high of just around zero!  Dress for the cold and make sure you have extra batteries for your gear.  Ice grips for your boots are a must in the canyon and trekking poles with metal tips are very useful....

Night Shooting Guidelines

As requested by some members, here is the list that I put together and handed out during the Night Shoot last February prior to our visit to the barn on the Bear Lake Road . Like most night photography, it requires a lot of patience and many trial and error shots to get the right exposure. Keep in mind that ambient light (moonlight / Aurora) will play a big part in getting the right ISO and exposure time. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. Click the link below to view the checklist. Happy Shooting ! Lockyer NightShooting...

Happy New Year Shutterbugs

The image says it all.  Well, not quite all.  It leaves out a few things that are important to our Club for sure… …this one is a gentle reminder that midnight tonight is the deadline for the current segment of the photo contest so get your entry in on time.  The theme is Back Alley. The other is a reminder that our first meeting of the year will be on Monday evening (January 4th) at 7pm in the Century 21 Building.  I will be there early so if you have memory sticks with images to share please come early so the preparations don’t cut too heavily into our meeting time.  It is also possible to email your images...
