January 8, 1:00pm, Clubhouse, “Macro Focus Stacking” with Scott Wheaton We’ve had Macro workshops several winters, but Scott will take us steps beyond just snapping a photo. See what he does to make each image spectacular. He’ll ask several members to bring a macro lens, take some shots, and he’ll process these photos as well. Scott Wheaton on Flickr

February 5, 1:00pm, Clubhouse, Jamie Konarski Davidson New Life Photos
Title: “Subject to Interpretation” Jamie says "As photographers and observers of life and the world around us, we all see and notice different things. We each have different impressions of subjects because of our life experiences as well as our knowledge of the tools we have available to us and our vision. When we make an image, we are putting in "the box" what speaks to us most clearly and loudly through our eyes, mind and heart. Everything, yes, everything, is subject to interpretation. In this program Jamie will share her vision and ways to grow and develop awareness and confidence in our individual ways of interpreting the world around us. She'll also provide some ideas on how to focus and be more intentional in the image-making process.”
Jamie may also lead a workshop related to her talk.
March 5th, 6:30pm, Clubhouse, Mike Keith “Photographing Cosmic Neighbors” Especially for our nighttime photographers and astro photographers. Tell everyone to come and see how he manages to take such spectacular photographs of objects in outer space. Visit his website Cosmic Neighbors
to see his amazing images. This will be an evening event because the images need to be particularly sharp to be effective.
April 9th, 1:00pm, Clubhouse, Kevin Karlson “Visions: Earth’s Elements in Bird and Nature Photography”
Kevin will also lead an indoor “Advanced Photography Workshop”- Photography Tips and Pointers, including light awareness as Ansel Adams addressed it. Kevin has also offered to lead a field trip (seriously!) perhaps with his wife who is a really good point and shoot photographer. I’m working on details. Visit Kevin's website Kevin T. Karlson
