The LAPC Program Committee has been busy. We have program topics and/or speakers mapped out for many months ahead. This year we are attempting to use expertise from within the club, rather than bringing in a lot of outside people. We have a lot we can draw on internally; it also makes it easier in this time of Covid to be more flexible. We have tried to build off of suggestions we’ve gotten from club members in various ways. If you have a topic you’d like to see, please let us know. Here’s the tentative list, but please allow for flexibility over these next unpredictable months. All meetings except for September will be held indoors at the IBEW hall with Covid protocols in place.
September*: Getting to Know You activities
*This is a “Come at Your Own (weather) Risk” meeting held at Noelridge Park near the lagoon. We will not cancel this meeting for any weather-related reason, but the agenda will be very fluid to accommodate leaders who may not be able to attend.
October: Light painting by Julie Coder
November: Light by Doug Nauman; Annual contest?
December: No meeting
January: Videography by Don Nelson
February: Food photography by Nicole Jackson
March: “Trick” photography by the Program committee (more info to come)
April or May: Beginning Astrophotography by Carl Bracken to be followed at a later date by a photo shoot at the observatory.
We have also been in contact with former Photo Pro folks who may provide us with presentations on macro and flash photography. We’ve talked about presentations on cell phone photography, photo stories, composition, photography careers, where to print photos, and travel photography. We’d like to institute a “pre-meeting” time for newbies to be able to get help from those with more experience. Look for updates to come.
