SIG Meeting, June 20, 2006
Prior to presentations, we discussed future programs, including
subjects that would attract new members. The assignment for June was
Night Photography, difficult for some of us, but obvious joy in
their art for others.
*Ben Luna - Particularly impressive was his photo of Joe's, sort of
a phosphorescent red glowing in the dark. The American Bank
Building, night-lit, reflecting color in the water. Not only
fantastic photography, but evidence of excellent Photoshop-ing.
*Patty Beasley - Patty went to archives - wonderful that she could
attend after their trials. Downtown buildings with Christmas
lighting, reflecting the holiday colors on the waterfront,
exceptionally well done, as Patty does it.
John Hoffmann - A lot of work and interest went into his Padre
Island subjects, presented on DVD with nice audio. A service station
at night, capturing the overhead lights, lights in unusual
architecture, and like a true Islander, great shots of Bob Hall Pier
scenes. Kudos also for nice opening and finish, cute cartoons.
*Bruce Switalla - a central theme, the new Whataburger at the new
stadium. He set his camera at ready, and waited for things to
happen, a car coming by adding its lights to the scene, people
entering, light areas with dimmer outlines, nice effects. Well
planned and excellent result.
*Ken Parsons - Unbelievable the subjects that can be found around
us. Ken panned scenes from his upper back deck, then went to the the
front of his house for panning those scenes. Nice composition and a
good eye for the good stuff made a remarkable presentation.
*Bill Draper - sticking to his roots, he stayed with Padre Island
scenes, Bob Hall Pier, neighborhood lights, gates, and light glints
Next meeting: July 18, 7 PM, at Parkdale Library. The assignment is
Macros, photographing little things.
