The CAPA Audio Visual selection night has been cancelled. In it’s place we will have a slideshow/video showcase.
If you have a slideshow or video that you have created and would like to show other club members, please bring it on a thumb drive at any time up to and including the showcase night. Please keep the length of your slideshow or video to approximately 5 minutes or less. If time allows there will be a discussion of slideshows, software and tips on creating a successful slideshow.
She saw/ He saw: join the dynamic duo of Nicolette Eadie & Vic Hamm Wed. March 12 as they share their recent Mediterranean adventure visiting sites from Barcelona to Istanbul. Learn how team work meant they never missed a sailing and captured an in depth photo record of their journey. 7 PM at the Henry Grube Education Centre.
We will select entries for the CAPA Open competition on March 5. A maximum of two entries per member must be submitted before March 4.
OPEN COMPETITION RULES: A variety of subject matter is accepted including abstracts. The photographer can make enhancements in the camera (zooms, pans, multiple exposures, blurs, cropping) as well as modifications and enhancements using digital imaging software (HDR, focus-stacking, selective layering – using photographs of the same scene) to improve the overall presentation of the original captured image e.g., improved contrast/tonality, enhanced colour. Non-photographic components such as text, lightning or computer-simulated imagery (which were not part of the original photograph) are not acceptable. No composites. Techniques that dramatically change the presentation of the original captured image must be entered in the ‘Altered Reality’ Competition.
The last KPAC Program of the month is SHOWCASE. The challenge for February 2014 is Today’s Forecast – ‘On Glorious Cloud 9’.
The 1896 edition of the International Cloud Atlas defines 10 types of clouds #9 being cumulonibus that rises 10 K, the highest a cloud can be. In English vernacular it means to be high, in a state of bliss & elation, extreme happiness . . . or it could be a Chocolate bar according to Wikipedia.
Send up to 4 images on theme or not, sized, named and sent as instructed under the SHOWCASE tab on this website, by Monday, Feb. 24th (tomorrow) midnight.
Have you ever wondered how to get that nice soft, blurry background called ‘Bokeh’? Or how to get more than the stamens of a flower in focus? Norm will explain with ample image examples how to focus stack and the use of a slide rail to get maximum depth of field in close-up macro shots and wide landscape panoramas.
Come just to see Norm’s stunning images and hear his stories of capturing the shot or also pick up some useful photography tips you can use in your own backyard. All are welcome. There is ample (free) parking at HGEC and no charge for this presentation.
Time: Wed. February 19, 2014 @ 7 PM – 9 PM
Place: Henry Grube Education Centre, 245 Kitchener Cres. Kamloops (North Shore) Room 1B
Our usual meeting place at the Henry Grube Education Centre is not available on Feb. 12/14. February weather is not conducive to wandering around graveyards or junkyards searching for photo ‘ops in the dark. Besides, the Winter Olympics are happening in Sochi. Keep warm. Enjoy the Games. See you Feb. 19th when Wildlife Photographer, Norm Dougan shares his stellar photography and tips on capturing images of animals and birds in our local landscape.
