The speaker this month is Jim Digby from Loveland, CO. His program titled Optical Extractions is designed to show how to get the most out of any given image. His program will feature an illustrated tour of his photographic methods, techniques and philosophy, as well as mentions of his mentors and heroes. Jim does not specialize in any given subject matter or genre of photography. His philosophy is that almost anything in the right light becomes interesting. You will see every thing from flowers to old buildings and maybe an abstract or two utilizing the latest digital editing and post processing techniques.
Connie Redak has organized a field trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens to take place on Sunday, June 12. The gardens open at 9 AM, so we will meet at the entry gate at 1007 York St. at that time. Admission for non-members is $12.50 for adults, $9.50 for seniors (65+). If there are 10 or more of us, we will be charged a reduced, group fee of $10.50 for adults, $8.00 for seniors. Whoever is there at 9 AM will be part of the entry group.
As Connie notes, there is a conservatory as well as many opportunities outdoors even in rain or fog, so she will be there rain or shine, as I expect to be. In addition, it’s worth knowing that the garden has a very nice cafe with good food and beverages.
Hope to see many of you there. And many thanks to Connie for organizing this.
