A Camera Records Light
Lorraine Feldhausen sends this;
I have two photography places that send me emails. This is not a direct quote from one of the lessons, but it gets the idea across:
A camera records light. What you choose to focus on in that light becomes your picture.
I am attaching two pictures.One was taken on one of the many cloudy days we have had recently.Today I waited until the sun sifted through a tree and landed on this blossom that opened a day or two ago. Same autumn crocus (different blossom). But the light makes all the difference in the world for color, tone, and mood.The crocus is actually a light lavender. So the second photo is closer to what my eye saw.
This might be something to share at a meeting. Perhaps we could get club members to share different examples of things they have learned like this.
It could be a baby step to getting more involved.
Thanks Lorraine for the input and suggestion.
Reports that they have put up the Forest photos up at Fontenelle Forest. There were so many photos that they will be split, half now and the other half later will be displayed.
Lorraine Feldhausen and Diane Kinney are working on putting together an on-line survey on Monkey Survey. This is the first time these young ladies have attempted to do this with Monkey Survey. Thank you to Lorraine and Diane. A list of questions will be posted that members can vote on. I believe we will have a password to allow, club members only, access to the survey. I want to get a feel from you where we should go as a club.
I’m sure I probably forgot something
