Hello Friends;

With our ability to gather for meetings changing day-to-day, I will let you know as soon as we are able to meet at The Shanley again. Meanwhile, grab your camera and venture out for a photo walk. Most of us have to go no farther than our front or back yard to grab photos of nature, so feel free to post some of your pictures on the Granbury Camera Club Facebook site. Your images will cheer us all! 

Stay well, Phyllis Webster

Hello photo friends!

First of all, I want to thank Jim Hill for stepping in to do our program in March. Rick Cotton has successfully undergone another surgery, but even though he is willing to show up to do a presentation on the 17th, I insisted he heal longer — with great approval from his wife Becky! We will hear from Rick and Becky another time.

Meanwhile, we are continuing with our theme of finding ways to get inspired and be creative in our photography. Jim has some amazing tips and techniques to share. Below is his program and background information. See you Tuesday, March 17, 6:30 p.m. at the Shanley House.

Jim's Program:

Phyllis has asked me to talk about some of my still life photography at the next Granbury Photography Club meeting. I’m going to bring some items to help you understand what can be used to set up a still life photo session. Included will be props and lighting that can be used and I'll tell you where to buy it. I’ll go over different lighting from simple Home Depot purchases to speed lights. I’ll give you information as to where to buy black or white acrylic sheets, clear glass, black and white boards and other items used in our demonstration. Will set up two photo sessions, one using one light, a Flashlight, called Light Sculpturing and another on splash photography.
About Jim:

Jim Hill is a self-taught local photographer. He has been in the printing industry all his working life. As a salesman most of this time, he was around very talented and creative graphic artists. Now retired from the printing industry, he is very much into photography.

When he retired 6 yeas ago, Jim wanted some sort of hobby and decided to use photography to keep active. He has always had an interest in photography, but was mostly just a snapper. He decided to take it to the next level and learn what all the buttons on his camera really do. As he became a better photographer he increased the quality of his work with Photoshop post production editing.

As you can see, this will be a fantastic meeting. Please join us!
