----------- UPCOMING EVENTS -----------


Next Meeting:-June 13, 2019 at 7:00 PM





1. PROGRAM:“Photographing in Outdoor Light” by Clem Wehner

This program is about outdoor photography and handling problems caused by using sunlight as the light source. While a great light, there are many problems that can occur because of the nature of sunlight. Part of being a proficient photographer is knowing how to handle any lighting situation so you can get the shot regardless of the challenges. Clem will explain and demonstrate techniques and tools to solve the lighting issues and will show how to use gobo’s, diffusers, reflectors, and natural objects such as trees and buildings to modify the light and let you get the best lighting. He will demonstrate the use of reflectors and diffusers to add light, subtract light, reflect light, and balance exposures. He'll show how to block light, change light direction, change light color, diffuse light, eliminate sunspots, reduce eye squinting, solve raccoon eyes, increase image detail, and how to use the sun as the main light and a fill light at the same time! He will discuss the effect of sun lighting angle, show how to get the best light in nature scenes, and illustrate how to create the best shadows to highlight the subject’s features. Clem will explain how to choose the best time of day and why, and will give you his techniques to get good exposure even in high-contrast scenes. This lesson will be a perfect supplement to the Saturday Seminar we just had with Chris Duncan on May 18, 2019. What you will have learned from these two classes about light is fundamental to being a proficient photographer. Remember, great photography is not about what’s in your hand, it’s what’s in your head!


2. PHOTO CHALLENGE: -

Dues are due in January of each year- Individual-$10, family-$15, plus we ask that you volunteer at least 10 hours each year to help with our club events. Your volunteering earns funding for our club, and that's how we are able to keep dues so low!

We need YOU to help make presentations to clubs, civic groups, schools, churches, etc. You can use our pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation "Tips for Taking Great Photos". It's really simple to do.

If you make a presentation, display your photographs anywhere, teach a class to one or more people, or anything similar, let us know because our club gets funding for presentations done by our members. Contact a WWPS officer for more info.
