Ken Smith’s slide presentation

Ken has given me permission to make available his slide presentation from our December meeting. Click on this link

Some members have asked to see the slides with the information Ken showed us. I had posted a link previously that only had his photos.

January 20, 2022 Zoom Meeting

I want to remind everyone that our next meeting in January will be a Zoom meeting only. No in-person meeting at the forest this time.

Winter Scene pictures

Send me one photo of a winter scene. Anything goes here, as long as it is a winter themed shot. At this time, not much snow on the ground. There is still time before the January 20th meeting. It can be an old photo, you are not limited to having to take a picture from this year. We will present your photos to the club on our Zoom call. Club members will critique. Be prepared to describe your photo and tell us what kind, if any, post processing you did.

More Winter Photo Ideas

This video is about 11.5 minutes. I liked the Scottish accent.

Closing Thoughts

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. As always I am sure I’ve forgotten something to talk about. Please comment below if you have any thoughts about anything!

  1. Thanks for finding the video, Phil. It is helpful to understand how changing our perspective while out on a shoot can yield interesting results.
