Summer Excursions!

We’re moving into the summer phase of our club, focusing (haha) on excursions! woo hoo! But, first things first:

The photographs from our “Home” exhibition have been taken down from the lobby at the O’Brien Arts Centre and they are available from Aimee at Them Days, 3 Courte Manche St (across from Notre Dame). If you would like to buy your picture with your frame, it will cost $50.

And, now for the exciting new business:
Our summer photo-taking excursions will start this week. Instead of our regular third-Thursday evening meeting, this week we will meet at the end of Mud Lake Road for a photo-taking evening. Meet at 7:00, bring camera gear, weather-appropriate clothing, insect repellant, etc. Drive east on Hamilton River Road, take Riverview Drive up to Elizabeth Street, and continue on the gravel road, past the municipal water treatment plant and past the farms. (See attached street guides if you need a visual.) Of course, stop and take photos along the way if you like. Need a ride? Phone Mavis to arrange.

Next Meeting: Thursday, April 3

The next meeting will be at the Aboriginal Resource Centre at 7pm, at the College of the North Atlantic. (Same time and place as usual!)

This week’s topic will be the second in our Introduction to Photography series. Session 2 is “Getting Better Exposures, Pt. 1.” Learn about taking your camera off Auto (and still getting that photo you want–in fact, maybe getting it because you took it off Auto!).

See you there!

Next Meeting: Thursday, March 20

The Tamarack Camera Club Executive has been listening to the needs and concerns of our club members, so from now until June, we will be conducting an Introduction to Photography course at our meetings.

The first workshop will be GET TO KNOW YOUR CAMERA. Don’t forget to bring your camera along (also, don’t forget to have charged batteries in it–you’ll be using your camera and getting to know the controls)!

Where: Aboriginal Resource Centre, College of the North Atlantic

When: Thursday, March 20, 7pm.

And pass along the word to people who may be interested in joining and learning!

November 21 Meeting Cancelled

Unfortunately, the November 21 meeting of Tamarack Camera Club will be cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. In the meantime, if anybody would be interested in putting their names forward for leading a presentation or  showing a slideshow, please let us know.

Also, if anybody knows of alternative meeting spaces, please forward the suggestions on to the executive.

Thank you!

We’re starting!

The Tamarack Camera Club is having its inaugural meeting Thursday, November 7, 2013, at 7pm at Them Days, located at 3 Courte Manche.  Are you interested in sharing ideas with other photographers, hearing good speakers, learning about great shooting locations nearby, participating in workshops, and competing in photographic challenges?  Then come join the Tamarack Camera Club!

The goal of the club is to bring anybody interested in photography together; to increase club members’ creativity, technical skills and knowledge in photography; and to exhibit and publicize the work of club members.  This club is for people of all skill levels–you just need to have a camera and a love of photography.

We look forward to seeing you at the meet-and-greet this Thursday.  You are encouraged to bring three photos with you to share with other photographers attending the inaugural meeting.For more information, contact us:
