August meeting - Saturday in the park

     Wednesday August 12 at 7:00 pm at the Grand is our next meeting. The theme is "Panorama" and the rotating category is "Journalism". Tomorrow a contingent of the TCC will be at Lincoln Park along with lots of other artists between 10:00 and 2:00. You could stop by and help at the table or just come by and say hello.

     Richard Beebe has several classes offered this next semester. Among them are Beginning Digital Photography, Intermediate, and Advanced, and several offerings on different dates of Photo Studio Drop-In. If you are like me, you have probably heard from many friends about wanting to learn how to operate their new cameras. Here's how! The first class starts in October.

     We have one more Art Walk at the Grand scheduled for Friday August 14. If you have any images that you would like to have displayed, bring them to the next meeting. Make sure you put your name on the back.

     A recent edition of Imaging Resource has an extended discussion of yet another new type of camera. It's just a lens and sensor with a remote connection to your smart phone. Much of the electronics is an ap on your phone and the view screen is your phone. There is even a bracket so you can combine the two. It seems ideal for wildlife photography or street photography.

     I owe a real debt of gratitude to Cash, Tiffany, Richard and others that have stepped up to cover the Saturday and Friday events since I'm going to miss both of the next two. But I will see you August 12 for the meeting. In the mean time, see if you can figure out how your camera makes panoramas. Mickey McGuire
