Welcome to our new member - Billy

Presidents Message:

We will have a brief discussion on the results of our recent Board and Committee Chair Annual Meetings Some changes that need to be voted on and decisions that need to be made for 2018

Exhibits: Robin will update us on future plans: Top of the List is:    Goshen Art League “Art Walk” Oct 14th

Fieldtrips: Mary follow-up from Plum Point Sunrise – Bear Mountain, etc. All suggestions accepted

Theme for: September “One Shot”.

Take a moment before you shoot to:  Manual or Aperture Priority

•               Decide where you will go and when or what will be your subject -

•               Shoot in Raw – for after shot edits so you won’t lose data

•               Plan on the time to arrive for best light

•               Choose a spot or set up your subject or landscape.  Walk around to be sure it’s the best spot                  and you're satisfied.

•               Check your background for distractions or poles, or stuff that don’t belong in your shot

•               Compose for the best angle; leave out unnecessary foregrounds or backgrounds

•               Check the light and see where it falls – maybe you have to wait for the light

•               Fix your setting’s to fit the moment (use a spot meter if you wish or a grey card)

•               Check live view if you have it - notice your histogram

•               Crop in camera before you shoot – zoom in or out

•               Now take the “ONE SHOT”.
