At the next Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting on Thursday, October 13, Don Armstrong will present the topic: “How What I Learned From Camera Club Projects Advanced My Photography.” He will show before and after images and explain the transformations.

“Sunrise/Sunset” and “Hidden Compositions” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. “Sunrise/Sunset” is about seeing the character of sunset/sunrise light not only in the sun direction but that golden light on objects behind you. “Hidden” would be something interesting in a photo that wasn’t the subject or reason you took the photo. It may be quite a crop from the original — like a hide-and-seek thing – and a good opportunity to look over old shots.

An illustrated presentation on adjusting your color to create better black & white photos will be in the 15-minute tech portion of the meeting.
A social time follows the program.

First-time visitors are welcome to participate free of charge. The annual membership is $30. Among the benefits of membership are discounts on photography classes, field trips, and the right to show photos at Club exhibits.

The Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meets at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.
