Mile High Wildlife Photo Club

June 2011 Meeting Summary

< Previous Meeting | Index | Next Meeting > For our June meeting, Russ Burden, Board Member, Master, and Competition Team Lead, treated us to two digital slideshows.

The first slideshow, called "Nature's Gifts" spotlighted several of his favorite nature photographs. With his many years of experience, he was able to show beautiful pictures from numerous locations. The images demonstrated his ability to be at the right location at the right moment, his Photoshop techniques, and his creativity. As always, Russ's photos demonstrated how to catch beautiful light.

Growing up in New York City, Russ had seen the Twin Towers under construction. After 9/11, he felt compelled to make a digital slideshow using his photos to express what he feels about our country and that day. Included were his outstanding portraits and scenics set to patriotic music. The club members in the audience commended Russ on the emotions that this slideshow evoked and the skill with which it was created.

Then we all were treated to examples of Russ's great teaching ability as he judged the competition.
