Happy New Year to everyone! Here is a rundown of some of what’s happening in our club right now:
Please join us on Saturday morning at 10:00 am for the next video presentation. This time the topic will be intimate landscape photography with photographer Bill Fortney.
The assigned category for the January photo competition is Travel. Remember the cutoff time for entries on the meeting night is 6:45 pm and that you must have your dues paid to be eligible. If you wish to pay your dues at the meeting please fill out this form and bring it with you. Your current ranking, based on the final scores from 2011, can be viewed on the new score sheet.
The next SDL workshop that Robert and Jim are doing will be at tRG studio on Saturday the 21st. The topic is food photography. If you are interested please go to the SDL website to find out more information and register.
P.S. Thanks to everyone for making the holiday party a success. The food and the company were terrific. Here are a few snapshots from the event:
If you are interested in using your camera’s video capabilities then you may be interested in using the discount code provided to attend. I am interested in this subject myself and will be attending. All the details and the discount code are available at: http://www.jrsphotos.com/tbcc/tampa_baycc.html
Since our next competition subject is macro photography I will be hosting a get-together to cover all sorts of methods, techniques, and gear that you can use to create macro photos. You might be surprised to find out that you don’t necessarily need specialized equipment to come up with some interesting macro photos.
The Spaghetti Warehouse is located at 1911 N 13th St, Tampa, FL 33605
We will meet at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Ybor City on Tuesday night, August 2nd, at 7:00 p.m. You can get some dinner to eat while you take in the presentation. Please leave a reply below if you wish to attend so that I can give the restaurant an idea of how many people to expect that evening.
Let me clarify a few things. It’s not a workshop, I’m giving a presentation for the benefit of any of our members who may need some guidance with respect to equipment and techniques that can be used to take macro photos for our next competition. I will give my presentation at 7:00 pm. People can arrive anytime up until then and may order food if they wish and can eat while watching the presentation if they want to. If anyone wishes to do any shooting before or after they are on their own and welcome to do so.
At last Friday’s meeting someone made an announcement that registration was full for camera club day. I spoke to the organizer, Jim Swallow over the weekend and he wants everyone to know that the Saturday workshop is full but the actual camera club day on Sunday still has plenty of spaces available and he encourages everyone to sign up. Jim also asked me to give a brief presentation on macro photography inside the building on Sunday. Hope to see members there on Sunday!
We have put together a YouTube video for the club-sponsored workshop coming up in May. Remember, this event generates income for the club in addition to promoting us and promoting Tampa as a photography travel destination so help us spread the word by sharing this through your social media connections.
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Sandy Puc’ and I am a photographer with a studio in Littleton, Colorado. Currently, I am embarking on my fourth national photography tour, The Power of Passion Tour (http://powerofpassion.sandypuctours.com), and I would like to personally extend the invitation to you and your club members when I visit the Tampa Bay vicinity!
I fell in love with photography from the very first image I captured and, as a result, I’ve spent my entire adult life learning the craft. I started out as a member of a local photography club and I cherish the experience I gained from that involvement. Today, I’ve been honored to work with some of the most exceptional leaders in the industry and have been able to truly follow my dreams.
The tour will be coming to Tampa on March 7, 2011 and will take place at the Carrollwood Cultural Center at 5 p.m. Jerry Ghionis, a worldwide leader in wedding photography, will be my special guest. Ghionis and I will share our passion and knowledge for our trade ranging from technical tips such as lighting and posing techniques, to how to effectively market any photography business!
I want to invite all of your members who have a passion for photography and an eagerness to learn about this amazing industry! Because I know the value of having local clubs that support those who want to learn and explore the world of photography, I’d also like to offer you and your members a discount to attend my event! You can order your tickets online at http://powerofpassion.sandypuctours.com and make sure to use the code CLU11 in order to receive a $50 ticket per person- that’s a total savings of $49 per person!
I hope to see you this weekend!
