February 2014 Competition Results

Monthly Meeting Change of Venue

Gary Fifer, Flatirons Photo Club’s primary contact at Har Hashem, has changed our meeting venue back to the location where we met for a number of months after we started to gather at Har Hashem. Rather than going to the building closest to Baseline, continue south through the parking lot (you’re headed south when you turn off of Baseline). We will meet in the building that you will see on your right in a couple hundred feet or so. Use the parking lot just beyond and adjacent to this building and enter through the door on the right side.

Forney Museum offers club shooting of antique cars on Saturdays

To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to let you know of another photography opportunity that I thought some of your participants/members might be interested in! The Forney Museum of Transportation does a Photography Club Session one Saturday a month.

The Saturday is intended to give photographers time to take behind the scenes pictures of our antique cars. By coming on the special Photo Club day you are allowed to get up close to the cars, behind the ropes.

All we ask for the Photo Club Saturdays is that if these photos are taken for commercial reasons they are given attribution on the photo or in the caption to the Forney Museum.

All we ask is that you call to RSVP for the event, just so we know how many people are planning on coming, and then you can pay upon arrival. Currently it is $20 non-members, $15 members, but we are thinking of changing it to $15 non-members, $10 members.

The remaining dates for this event are: 3/1, 4/5, 5/3, 6/7, 7/5, 8/2, 9/6, 10/4, 11/1, and 12/6. The time of the club is 8 a.m.-10 a.m. before the museum opens.

Please let me know if you have any further questions!

We hope to see you at a Photography Club Saturday!

March 13, 2014 Program-Rich Wolf

We are fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. My goal is to share the beauty of Colorado by drawing viewers into my images. I do this through the use of a technique known as photomerging. Some of my merged pictures consist of hundreds of individual photographs seamlessly quilted into a single panorama. The resulting prints are large and highly detailed. Another key advantage of this technique is that it permits me to achieve extreme depth of field by using multiple focus settings.The result can provide the feeling of being in the image.

My presentation covers the evolution of panoramic photography, how I merge multiple images, what I do with them with the resulting photos and where this photographic technique fits into the future of digital photography.
