Mile High Wildlife Photo Club

June 2009 Meeting Summary

< Previous Meeting | Index | Next Meeting > Our June meeting featured an outstanding slide presentation by Colorado landscape photographer Glenn Randall. Many of the photographs from Glenn’s books “Colorado Wild & Beautiful” and “Rocky Mountain National Park Impressions” were included in the presentation. Mr. Randall provided a variety of background notes about many of his photographs, including scouting specific locales, planning for sun locations and subjects, the use of gradient filters, composition, and personal anecdotes and histories behind the final shots. A question and answer period after the presentation allowed those in attendance plenty of time to get additional information about photographic techniques and locales.

During the break, Glenn had copies of “Colorado Wild & Beautiful” for sale, and signed copies upon request. A second treat available during the break was seeing the club’s own exhibit - “Things with Wings” - on display at The Wildlife Experience.

After the break, Glenn Randall also judged the monthly competition. The competition was a little different this month for two reasons. First, judging from outside the club provided a different perspective and some tougher scores than we sometimes see. And secondly, this competition was the first using the new competition guidelines, with three categories available instead of the previous two. < Previous Meeting | Index | Next Meeting >
