Mile High Wildlife Photo Club

November 2010 Meeting Summary

< Previous Meeting | Index | Next Meeting > At November's General Club Meeting, club member Steve Goodman gave an entertaining and educational presentation about his trips to Iceland for photography. As Steve put it, his presentation was part travelogue and part photography. Steve told us about the "loop road" that went around the island of Iceland. On a map, he demonstrated the location of each of his major stops and he showed examples of the scenery and/or wildlife that could be photographed there. Questions afterward suggested that his presentation had tempted several members to consider taking a photography trip to Iceland; these members asked about costs, best time of year, and accommodations.

During the break, we all went upstairs to view our club members' winning photographs that were displayed in the Community Gallery of the Wildlife Experience Museum. This year the photographs were mounted on DuraPlaq rather than matted and framed. Many club members commented on how stunning the photographs looked when displayed in this new format.

The competition was judged by Reed Nelson, while he simultaneously drove the projector! This was particularly impressive since last month was Reed's first time driving the projector for the competition. Reed gave many specific suggestions about how to improve each photograph-very welcome after a discussion at the beginning of the meeting revolved around whether the club should sponsor a mentor-mentee concept to give beginning and intermediate nature photographers more detailed advice (from the masters) than what is available in the short discussion time that each image can have during the competition. Steve Goodman's(our presenter for the evening) image entitled Mountain Bighorns won third place in the Club Wildlife category.
