Our theme this month is “painterly effects”. As always, this is for members to interpret or ignore as they choose. We’ll have a Mystery Photo and maybe some show-and-tell with new equipment. Send photos and requests for sign-in info to email@example.com (the screen share problem will be solved by then).
This is our informal, non-agenda meeting, although we have several things we could talk about: Are we getting closer to meeting in person? Do we take/make pictures, photographs, photos, or images? We’ll use screen share for any pictures/photographs/photos/images you would like to show. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for sign-in info.
To avoid any potential family or religious conflicts, the April UPC meeting has been rescheduled to Sunday, April 11.
Our theme this month is “distance”, meaning macro/close-up or telephoto. Send photos for the meeting and website, ideas for a Mystery Photo or other agenda items, and requests for sign-in info to email@example.com.
Henry Wonacott was a tenacious and adaptable commercial photographer working in Mendocino County between the years of 1908-1947. Equipped with the capacity to cater his skills to a changing market, his photography chronicles an evolving economic landscape.
Park Steiner is offering back issues of Popular Photography, Outdoor Photographer, Shutterbug, American Photographer, and Photo Techniques. Dates range from the 1990’s to recent years. Most of these publications are now out of print, but much of the content remains relevant. There are articles on composition, lighting, posing, even working with models, professional or just the grandkids. Black and white is a common topic, both digital and from the darkroom. There are inspirational pieces on why art is an important part of photographers’ lives, and how photographs are instrumental in disseminating information to others. And, of course, the magazines are filled with many fine examples of great photography. In addition, the advertisements provide a window into the technology and styles of the time.
The only organization is that they are in boxes by publication. Dates are random. Being stored indoors, they’re all in nice shape.
Interested photographers should contact Park at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for perusal and pickup at his Deerwood home.
