Meeting Minutes: 13 May 2019

 

The Brattleboro Camera Club met on Monday, May 13th at VCP.  It was nice to see our long-standing member Chuck Fish in the audience. 

The guest speaker was John Nopper from Putney.  John has devoted much of his photography to portraiture work and high-quality digital printing.  With the help of several large-format prints, John illustrated the importance of speed, aperture, and depth of field.  His photos of "rock-and-roll musicians", street portraits, and Paul Miller were great examples of the careful use of these variables when taking non-studio photographs.

Theme of the Month:

There were several photos submitted for "Hidden".  After a long battle with computer technology, Malcolm Blue was able to get the images projected on the screen.

Linda Sperry has volunteered to put together a Theme of the Month for the second half of 2019.  See her choices on our club website.
