    Bird Photography SIG - Wednesdays @ 1:30PM

    The Bird Photography Special Interest Group - Mike McMinn, moderator. Wednesdays @ 1:30 pm. 
    Meetings are on-line via Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent upon registration.

    The Bird Photography SIG is designed for members who wish to improve their Bird Photography skills. The first half of the SIG will involve a discussion of topics related to different areas associated with bird photography. Topics and discussion may range from equipment, shooting techniques, such as shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. The significance of habitat and the importance of composition will also be stressed. The second half will involve photo sharing. All attendees are encouraged to bring several images to share. The exchange of ideas addressing both positive components and possible alterations may improve the photos.

    The main focus is enhancing both the enjoyment and skills associated with bird photography. All club members are welcome. Photography skill level is not important, just the interest and desire to increase our enjoyment of bird photography.

    You must be a member of GVR and the GVR Camera Club to attend this event.

    Black and White SIG - Tuesdays 1:30pm

    The Black & White Special Interest Group - Wendell Werner, moderator.
    Tuesdays @ 1:30 pm. 
    Meetings are on-line via Zoom. Your registration confirmation will contain the Zoom link.

    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 above.

    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.

    Rebel Rousers SIG

    Fridays @ 9:00AM

    Online via Zoom, register for the link.

    In 2003 the first affordable DSLR cameras were made available to the public.  The several GVR Camera Club members who obtained those first cameras formed a group they called the Rebel Rousers.  

    The group continues today in the form of an informal discussion group whose topics generally centers on more advanced cameras, lens, photography equipment as well as computers and software to process digital images.  There is no formal leader nor any topics arranged ahead of time. We just get together and enjoy the discussion.  The group meets each Friday morning beginning at around 9:00 am (or whenever you get there) and ends when everyone leaves. Come join the fun.
