Monthly Meeting (6:30 PM EST)
The Members' Forum this month is Splash, Flash and Capturing the Action by Navjot Hanspal.  He will share some ideas about photographing beauty and symmetry of what happens when a drop hits a reservoir of water. There are electronic devices to make the process easier to capture but much can be done with a flash, and cable release.  He will share his set up and some of his amazing photographs.  See Navjot's award winning photo from the October Club competition. Our guest speaker is Larry Hinson who will present on Light as Language. Larry will discuss what makes good light in photography, where to find good light, how to create good light out of bad light, and how to create good light in flash photography. Larry will discuss and show many of his images from seascapes to portraits and discuss how the images were made.  Larry is an award-winning photographer born in Wilmington, Delaware. His love of photography began as a counselor at YMCA Camp Tockwogh where he learned darkroom processing.
