Beauties in the Blue Bells at Parklands – 3:00 PM Friday, April 21
Let’s meet at Green Gables at Lake Bloomington, 2:45. Park across the street at the entrance to the park and car pool.
Vandana is bringing two lovely ladies in Saris to pose for us in the Bell Bells. Of course you can shoot macro, landscapes, and whatever also. But what a treat!.
We’d like to finish by 6. These ladies have to make arrangements for their kids.
The ladies would like you to send them your best images in digital format. They do not want any other compensation. And Vandana will help you get the model release if needed for a competition.
Entries needed for President’s Special for 2016. Topic is Speed. Please submit to tomr@peoriacameraclub dot com. Up to five images may be uploaded.
This year, I decided to approach presidents special a little different – since our annual meeting fell the day after the NCAA Men’s Final and on Election Day, I decided to host a bracket where members got to pick the topic.
Our President’s Special Final Four was:
After Round 1 – Macro/Close-Up & Long Exposure came out victorious.
In the end – the winner and this year’s president special is: Macro/Close-Up
Why did I add the Arthropod/Plant restriction?
I wanted the club members to step out outside the box and get creative. If you google “Macro Photography” you will notice almost all of the images are of insects/spiders and flowers.
I also noticed this trend on Flickr – the trend continued on the largest Macro group. https://www.flickr.com/groups/49503086607@N01/
I then found a Flickr group which had restriction and I really like the diversity of images compared to the traditional macro groups – so I decided to add the same restrictions to president’s special. https://www.flickr.com/groups/macro_noflower_noinsect/
Here are just a few website I found that provide useful information:
Happy Shooting and good luck!
