November 4, 2013. Mug shots with my little Sony RX100 M2. The highlight of this meeting was a visit by Jeff Gross of The Photo Center on RT 88 in Brick, NJ. Jeff told us about the many services offered at The photo Center and discussed a number of new camera topics, including the mirrorless cameras.
Jeff brought a collection of new cameras, passed them out to the group so each club member had a hands-on experience checking them out. There were lots of comments on the comparison with the large, heavy DSLR's and the new lightweight mirrorless cameras.
After the meeting, a shot of Audrey at Dunkin Donuts cooling off with her hand held electric fan.
This month the club had an assignment to photograph a single egg along with a piece of black paper and a piece of white paper. There were many creative entries. Club president John Tyler, suggested we post them on the internet, so I thought I would post mine here. The setup: I placed a sheet of Plexiglas on top of 4 coffee cans. I put my remote flash below the Plexiglas. On top of the Plexiglas I placed the white paper and a white egg. The black paper was behind the egg at a 90 degree angle. The egg was full and the color was natural, with the intense light.
Thanks to John Tyler for chairing the meeting and a special thanks to Jeff Gross for his excellent presentation.
