    Mondays @ 1:30PM

    The Black & White Special Interest Group is a weekly meeting of those club members who enjoy the special qualities of black & white (or more generally called “monochrome”) photography. Members bring their images for viewing and comments by the group.  Discussions on editing techniques, as well as on composition and lighting are also a part of the meeting.
    The question might be asked “Why are we interested in black and white images when even the basic point and shoot digital cameras can produce very good color photographs?”  The answer is: there are some images which have more visual impact when rendered in black and white.  These images are those which use the interplay between light and shadows to emphasize texture or shapes within the composition. An example is shown below
    Typically, the photographs shown at our SIG have been produced as color images in a digital camera and converted to black and white using one or more of the popular photo editing software packages.

    Tuesdays @ 9:30AM

    Please bring up to 5 photos that you have either worked on and feel are ready for printing or display OR that you want specific help with.  The purpose of our discussions is to help members become more knowledgeable about  the taking and post processing of their photos.  Please try to bring the Exif data available for your photos (if possible).  Our discussions are  "Creative Criticism" sessions so we can learn from each other how to make all of our photos "BETTER"!!   With more members returning every day, we wish to make this a productive group, so our members can grow in the field of photography!

    Linda Gregory - Safari Serengeti, October Meeting Speaker

    Safari Serengeti is the second part of my five-week African adventure.  Starting with a week’s stay in Arusha where I met several very interesting people quite by accident, the ten-day Serengeti tour included sightings of lions, wildebeest, buffalo, zebras, hippos and birds.  As amazing as these were, the cultural experiences in a Maasai village and school were equally as impressive.

    Anza Days at Tubac Presidio 

    This year's Anza Days celebration has been re-envisioned to reflect more historical accuracy of this important event in Tubac's history, when Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza made the 1775 overland expedition from Tubac to the Pacific. The costumed cavalry drill at 8:00 am offers some great photo opportunities to record this historic event. "It begins in the cool of the morning at the Tubac Presidio at 8 am with period costumed riders executing cavalry drills. On the command of, "Vayan subiendo", the Anza riders will assemble along with a host of imaginary settlers and live stock, and proceed to the steps of St. Ann's Church (the site of Tubac's original church, Santa Gertrudis). There they will receive a blessing for the journey and head north with the first day objective of La Canoa. Subsequently, from 10 am to noon at the Presidio we will unveil our children's Anza Discovery Program with costumes, activities, props, ponies and superb photo ops.

    Meet at the Camera Club at 6:45AM for carpooling, and depart at 7AM. Carol Gautsch will be the trip leader. For questions call Carol at 520-347-4917 home, or 406-850-2742 cell, bratcat08@gmail.com.
