Print Critique Group (2:00 PM EST)
Intended for print photographers,  you are invited to join a small group of club members who gather in an informal setting via Zoom to show a few of their photographs and receive constructive feedback from fellow photographers. The meeting takes place once a month in a virtual setting in small groups so photographers can share their images and discuss their vision. This is a gentle and fun atmosphere that promotes friendship and learning for members only. Let Jim Samanen know if you would like to attend and he will coordinate groups and sign-in instructions. You can email Jim at jamessamanen@gmail.com
PhotoPills-Basics of Using Planner Workshop (2:00 PM EST)
Plan for the Natural Lighting from Sun, Moon, & Milky Way   Outdoor photography can benefit from anticipating and planning for the positions of the sun, moon, and milky way. The PhotoPills application is an outstanding and economical resource available to photographers using your smartphone and/or tablet. It has numerous programs useful for planning your photography projects and trips. It has been characterized as the Swiss Army Knife of photography applications. One of its most powerful programs is the Planner, which calculates sun, moon, milky way, meteor shower, and eclipse positions at any time in the future and from any location. This class will review the basic functions of the Moon, Sun and Planner programs in PhotoPills. We will address how to know the locations of and timing for astronomical bodies in the future and their relative position to landmarks and positions on a map. We will review how to use the planner to search for and identify when the sun and/or moon will be in a specific position in the sky. This function is used to plan the photography of astronomical bodies and their proximity to landmarks of interest. These operations include the planning of the best days, times, and the best locations from which to make your desired photographs. We'll discuss how we can use this information for the planning of our photography. Bob Becker, Lehigh Valley Photography Club president and CCCC member, will lead this interactive Zoom training session with ample time for your questions.  If you don't have PhotoPills, here is a chance to see what this terrific app is all about. If you already own it and struggle to make the most of it, this will open your eyes to many of the amazing uses it affords us.  If you plan to attend this free meeting contact Jim Wilson to ensure that you receive a Zoom invitation to join.
Don Komarechka: Down the Rabbit Hole – An Adventure in the Universe at Our Feet (7:00 PM EST)
Macro photography is full of hidden treasures right under our noses. Exploring this invisible magic doesn't need to be difficult, but it certainly is off the beaten path. Macro photographers often play by a different rulebook and the resulting images can bend our view of reality while still being "real". The images often require the hand of the photographer to be an artist well before the shutter click, helping define the work uniquely to the photographer who is creating it. This talk will go over all of the fundamentals and how to equip yourself easily to begin your own explorations, down the rabbit hole. Biography: Don Komarechka is a nature, macro and landscape photographer located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. From auroras to pollen, insects to infrared, much of Don’s photographic adventures reveal a deeper understanding of how the universe works. Exploring the world that we cannot see with our own eyes has been a common thread in Don’s career as a professional photographer. Always science-minded but never formally trained, Don uses photography as a way to explore and understand the world around him. Photographing something unusual or unknown is the perfect excuse to learn something new. Don’s work often pushes up against the technical limitations of modern camera equipment and the physical limitations of light itself. For more information, please go to https://www.donkom.ca.
