  • Doug Johnson | Photo Essays

    7:30 PM-10:00 PM
    2017.10.23

    10 Zeller Dr, Kitchener, ON N2A 4A8, Canada

    10 Zeller Dr, Kitchener, ON N2A 4A8, Canada

    About the presentation:

    Not Just a Slide Show…

    This presentation will not only describe the features of slide show software but also will illustrate a process that goes into creating an effective (i.e. non-sleep inducing) way of sharing your images as a Photo Essay.

    Doug will discuss:

    • Software choices – from Lightroom to Producer
    • Building your story – storyboards and selecting images
    • Creating the show in your software
    • Editing choices – Transitions ~ Motion ~ Layers ~ Sub Titles
    • The Audio Track – Selecting music ~ Voice Over ~ Audio Editing
    • Titles and Credits
    • Sharing and output

    The objective is to provide the audience with a better understanding of the power of Photo Essays (and their cousins) as creative tools to entertain your audience and display your work.

    About Doug:

    Doug has been a photographer off and on since the tender age of 14 when he was gifted an Agfa Clack camera. However, it was after his children left home many years later that he got more interested (or could actually spend more time) in photography, which was fortunately just as the digital revolution was taking hold. With the new technology available, Doug discovered that digital editing was more than just another tool to improve photos, but provided the means to feed his artistic hunger (which even those bred in the financial industry may actually display on the odd occasion!). His camera had become more than just a device to record a picture but combined with computer editing provided all kinds of fascinating creative possibilities. The new digital interface also allowed him more facility for the creation of interesting and evocative Photo Essays.

    Doug sharpened his skills by competing in camera club competitions, primarily at the Mississauga Camera Club and GTCCC, where the challenges, particularly of the “Creative” categories began to define his images in terms of the uncommon opportunities to push his creative abilities well past what he calls the “normal” margins; Doug even won a few awards. In his “spare” time, he has also explored several continuing education courses, most recently “The Modern Portrait” at Sheridan College.

    Besides spending time behind a camera or in front of a computer, Doug also enjoys gardening, curling, biking, and, of course, travel.

  • Elora – Twilight Zoo, Night Photography

    7:00 PM-9:00 PM
    2017.10.25

    Elora calls itself Ontario’s most beautiful village. There’s lots to photograph. It’s quaint, full of historical buildings, is very artsy, has 2 rivers – the Grand River and the Irvine River. There’s even a gorge! It’s awesome to photograph at night, with reflections from the shops along the river to long exposure car lights over the bridge. Elora embraces Halloween. October is called Monster Month. Resident artist Tim Murton started creating wire and paper sculptures as Halloween decorations for the kids in 1996 and it took off from there. Each year is different, but hopefully we will find a number of his creations scattered about town. You’ll need your tripod for this one. This will be an evening outing with details about time and meeting place to come.
