Summary of the Presentation

The Magic of Blue Hour  

Before the sun rises or sets, the landscape becomes a palette of soft colors and quiet shadows. Many new opportunities come to light during twilight, allowing you the time to maximize your photography outings. In this presentation, Jennifer will talk about her experiences photographing during twilight, go over subjects that lend themselves well to the blue hour, camera settings to capture the magic of twilight, and more!

Some Sample Images

Wildflowers bloom along the washes in the badlands during blue hour.

Who Should Attend

If you shoot or might shoot during the twilight/blue hour, which can be fleeting and tricky, this is for you! Blue hour is one of the most beautiful times to shoot. Jennifer will be showing primarily landscapes including that genre’s more intimate side, but these ideas will apply to other types of outdoor photography, as well.

Timelapse Photography – Presentation by Jim Sykes for our September Education Night

TBCC has always been about still images, but those expensive cameras we all have, as well as our phones, are all capable of so much more!

Video is becoming more and more mainstream. Timelapse photography is a combination of a long series of still photos made into a video, so this is a step up from say, a slideshow. It is a bit of a process but not quite as involved as processing true video. So consider this a stepping stone to videography, which we may address in future education nights.

Join us on Thursday, September 22, 2022, as our own Jim Sykes will share his knowledge of this interesting and fun side of photography.

Summary of Material to be Covered

Timelapse vs hyperlapse

Cameras and accessories

Camera settings

Importing and processing files

Adding a soundtrack

Exporting/rendering video

Alternative camera options

There will be plenty of time for questions, as well.

Why Attend

Timelapse is a lot of fun to create! It is an interesting addition to your bag of photography tricks that not everyone does. This is another form of creative play that can get us out of a photography rut! OH! And we just might have “timelapse” as an Assignment sometime in the future! Hint Hint!

We are all about getting everyone to use their expensive piece of electronics in as many ways as they can!

How to Attend

I will send out a Zoom Link to all members on Tuesday, Sept 20th.

If you are not a member and would like to see what TBCC is all about, please send an email to mytbcc@gmail.com with the Subject: Request Meeting Zoom Link and the date.

Hope to see everyone at our next Exhibit/Comment Night on Thursday, Sept 15, and this Education Night on Thursday, Sept 22nd.
