Next Photographic Frontiers Study Group Meeting: Wednesday, February 1

The next meeting of the Photographic Frontiers Study Group will be held in two weeks, Wednesday, February 1. John Kieffer will give a presentation on night photography. The meeting will be held at Boulder Digital Arts, 1600 Range St., Boulder, from 7 to 9 p.m.
John states that he has “fallen in love with night photography of all kinds, not just stars and moons. It’s one subject that often looks much better on your camera’s display or computer screen than to your eye. That’s a pleasant surprise. Today’s cameras make it pretty easy with some basic knowledge — preparation is more like it. Be warned . . . I’m still enthusiastically learning.”
In addition to being Flatirons Photo Club President, John says that he “is a photographer and travel guide here in Boulder. For the past 25 years, his photo career has ranged from commercial and editorial assignments to website design and photo tours. He is the author of 5 books on photography and is under contract to photograph his sixth. This one on Boulder. What fun.”
Remember to bring any photos that you’d like to discuss and/or have critiqued. The purpose of this group is education and mutual support.
