Camera Club Meeting May 21st

We had a fun meeting in April, learning more about panning and putting action into our photographs. It was a challenge for us to get out of our "setting" comfort zone and change camera settings to suit the subject and scene. In May, we will stretch our photo muscles in a very creative way. Award winning artist Carol Sewell will demonstrate "Using the Scanner As A Camera."

You might remember some of Carol's camera work from previous Photography Shows. Her photo of a street scene in Cuba won second place in 2018. You may not be as familiar with her unique digital skills, often incorporating a scanner.

At our May meeting on Tuesday, May 21, 6:30 p.m. at The Shanley, be prepared to try something new! Cultivate your vision, creativity, and digital skills by learning to use a flatbed scanner as a camera. The scanner’s unique features — shallow depth of field, limited available light and high resolution detail — can be accessed to create unique photographs. The program will include a brief history of camera-less images and photocopy artwork, examples of “scanograms,” and a how-to demonstration on making your own images.

Carol's work is fascinating and you will soon find yourself wondering how you can incorporate scanners into your artistic workflow. Don't miss this exciting program!

Also for discussion -- Summer Challenge and next year's leadership.

See you there! Phyllis Webster
