Our May 15th meeting will be an Owl Photo Shoot featuring the owls of the Fontenelle Forest Raptor Recovery Center. In order to take advantage of the good light we will have our photo shoot first and a business meeting afterwards.
Come prepared to photograph some exciting owls—Janet Stander, of the Raptor Recovery Team, says its bad karma to promise that they will bring certain birds but expect to have some exciting photo opportunities.
A medium zoom lens is good for shooting hand held birds. The use of a flash is allowed. If you have additional tips, please post them on our blog site or send them to me and I’ll forward them to the group.
Remember to bring your prints for the club displays. Prints featuring rodents and prints showing textures. They should be unmatted, unframed and labeled with your name and the subject. 8 x 10, 8 x 12, and 11 x 14 sizes are all good.
Also remember to bring your pictures from this month’s Photo Challenge on a flash drive. This month’s challenges were Reflection, Telephoto Lens and Off-Camera Flash.
If you will not be available for the contest hanging on May 31st you may also bring your contest photos to this meeting. See the web site for contest rules and guidelines.
