Nothing like a bit of inclement weather to identify the real hard core photo enthusiasts in our group! Neither the nasty weather, nor the competing Super Bowl could keep 30 avid members from attending last night’s session. My role for the night was to be time keeper and I must admit that I didn’t do a very good job as we certainly ran into overtime – aah but what wonderful images!!!
One of our recent recruits, Dave Robinet, has been a professional photographer for many years and we asked him to talk to us about one of his specialities – Sports Photography. Dave provided us with a pretty good idea of a typical work day – starting at and finishing near , all the while shooting many thousands of jpg images that must be almost immediately uploaded to the web! He demonstrated the gear he uses and some of the techniques he uses to get those “money shots” that are so highly sought after.
Our final slideshow of the evening was a rather lengthy one with the interpretation of our Frozen theme challenge from 32 of our compatriots. This really is a must see collection of images with some great use of natural light on our frigid surroundings. These along with our Wellington Outing images have been posted to our public Facebook page – go and take a look!
