Canon Prints & Sunday’s Meeting Reminder

For those Club Members who attended the 2017 Linn Area Photo Club Photography Workshop and requested a Canon print, those prints will be available at Sunday’s meeting.   Kelly Anderson (Canon) got those prints done and shipped them back to us.     Justin and Rick have three boxes of prints, so join us Sunday and get your print!  (We also have a few jump drives for those who did not pick them up at the event before leaving.)

 

In addition, at this month’s meeting we will be going over Camera Operations.

So…..  Bring your camera and your user manual! 

We will break into small groups based on the brand of your camera (Nikon versus Canon versus Other).     Club Members in each group will help each other with questions and technical advise specific to your camera and your needs.

So please bring your questions.    Things you might want to learn are…… “How do I ….”

  • Change Shutter Priority:  Aperture versus Speed  versus Manual
  • Change ISO
  • Change White Balance
  • Change Auto Focus Mode:  AI Servo versus AI Focus
  • Change Button Functions
  • Change Picture Style: Standard versus Portrait versus Landscape versus Neutral versus Faithful
  • Change Metering Mode: Center Weighted versus Spot versus Evaluative
  • Change Drive Mode:  High Speed versus Single Shot versus Low Speed versus Timed
  • Change Color Space
  • Set up or Change Bracketing
  • Read My Histogram and make some adjustments
  • Change flash modes

           ……and more.

As a part of the 2017 Linn Area Photo Club Photographers Workshop we have added a Day 2 Workshop on Sunday, April 30th.

Join award-winning photographer Tyler Stableford for a small group (14 people), hands-on workshop.    We have lined up a couple of local farmers (and farms), who have agreed to participate in in a fine-art portraiture shoot of “Iowa Farmers at Work”.   Tyler will walk us through all the steps that he goes through on a location shoot to “compose” an image.    You will learn about lighting, background, camera settings, posing, metering, etc.   You will have an opportunity to take some images alongside Tyler as he coaches the group through all his steps.   These farms will also have some interesting still-life photo opportunities, and depending upon weather, some actual field-work images as these farmers may be in their fields preparing them for planting.    Should the weather not cooperate, as it is spring in Iowa, these farmers haves some large barns and we will move indoors for our photo ops.

Be sure to bring your tripod and flash along with your camera, as we will begin the day in the morning with potential low-light conditions or indoors if mother-nature does not cooperate.    The workshop will start at 8:00 am and end at 3:o0 pm.      The cost is $100 (non-refundable).   A very small cost you will be able to work side-by-side with an award-winning pro.    Bring your lunch, as we will work through the time frame.
When the morning photo shoot is done, you will have a chance at a nearby location to watch Tyler utilize some of the skills he taught on Day 1 to process a few of these new award-winning images.
To reserve your space, send an email to Vice-President@linnAreaPhotoClub.org and a check to:

Remember this event is limited to 14 participants and is open to LAPC Members on a first come basis for one week.  After March 22nd,  sign up will be opened up to the public.   So send an email and your personal check quickly to the address above.

We look forward to to seeing you at this event in April.

2017 LAPC Photography Workshop – Update

Great News!

Canon will have a print professional at the workshop in addition to our speaker.  Throughout the day (while we are in the meeting) she will be printing “participant” images on a Canon Pro-1000.  

So bring a jump drive with one image you would like printed!     Must be in a PSD or TIFF (16 or 8 bit) format only.

She will be printing 17″ X 22″ and 13″ X 19″ images until her supplies run out.  (Her words. ” I am bringing a slew of paper, ink and print tubes!) 

Sorry she will not be editing any images prior to printing, due to time restraints and so as many participants as possible can get an image printed.

So get yourself registered and an image ready for printing!

Tyler Stableford – Lifestyle Adventure Photographer Seminar

Canon Pro-1000:  Professional photographers openly share what they need, want, and even don’t want in a printer. Like stunning black and white prints with deep blacks and detailed gradations. A wide color gamut that accurately reproduces even the most difficult colors. And at Canon, we listen. Introducing the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000.    A 17″ wide format professional printer with an 11-Color plus Chroma Optimizer ink system that does it all. Arguably one of the best printers we’ve ever engineered. Distinguished by a bold red line.
