January 2024 Workshop: The Beautiful World of Macro Photography with Jeff Johnson

by Ellen Nelson


SOUL ROAD TRIPS
THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD OF MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY
Jeff Johnson | Colorado Master Photographer | Artist | Educator | Chief Instigator

This Event has been Rescheduled to Sunday February 4th

Macro photography can be so beautiful and quite rewarding. It can also be quite challenging, if not a mystery to many photographers. Knowing what lens to choose, what f-stop to use, what lighting and direction to best enhance the subject and where to focus sometimes is just a best guess. It doesn’t have to be!

I will attempt to de-mystify macro photography for you by covering proper equipment, exposure, depth-of-field, camera & lighting angles and backgrounds. There are several possible lighting set-ups including natural window light, studio strobe, soft-box, strip light, umbrella, etc. Backgrounds vary greatly in creating your macro art, as well. Macro photography can be quite rewarding and satisfying once you get past the technical challenges. Learn these simple techniques and allow your creativity to wander.
This full-day hands-on workshop will cover these topics and techniques:

  • Image pre-visualization & composition
  • Equipment including:
        o Cameras and lens
        o Lighting – styles and techniques
        o Backgrounds & props
  • Camera settings including:
        o F-stops
        o Shutter speeds
        o ISO
        o Auto vs. Manual focus
  • Lightroom & Photoshop including
        o Adjustment layering (Photoshop)
        o NIK Software
        o Texture overlays
  • Lots more as time permits

The morning session I will have several stations setup with varying types of lighting, props and opportunities to learn. We’ll break for lunch (on your own) and in the afternoon, I will demonstrate in Lightroom and Photoshop how I create fine art images from macro imagery. So much to share and fun to be had!

Join us at the fire station:
Wednesday, February 4th at 9:00am until 4:00pm

October 2023 General Meeting: Copyright? Yes! with Barb Norton

by Ellen Nelson

Find out what copyright is all about – how and what it protects; and what can be done if the copyright is infringed. And find out also what threats loom – namely, artificial intelligence.

September 2023 General Meeting: The Original Influencers with Greg Holden


GREG HOLDEN
The Original Influencers

During the dawn of photography from the late 1800s through the mid-1900s, it was common for photographers to be inspired by the works of their peers. This presentation will showcase Greg’s collection of photo comparisons including photographs from both well-known photographers such as Edward Steichen, Alfred Stiglitz, and Dorothea Lange; and perhaps an introduction to lesser-known photographers such as George Tice, Jaromir Funke, and A. Aubrey Bodine. The presentation concludes with a comparison of how Greg’s photos have been inspired by these master photographers.

Join Greg and the Evergreen Camera Club in person in the auditorium at the Evergreen Fire and Rescue Station (1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen) on Wednesday, September 13th for 6:30 pm social time, brief announcements at 7:00 pm with Greg’s presentation following. We will also host this meeting on ZOOM at the link below starting at 7pm.

NOTE: This is a contest meeting! Greg has graciously volunteered to judge images after his presentation.
