SIG Meeting, October 17, 2006 - meeting notes:
The Digital Camera SIG met at Park dale Library on October 17 with
11 photographers present. The assignment was Critters, of any
species The output was prolific, in both quality and quantity.
*Ben Luna - special thanks, Ben, for including camera settings with
each of your photos. It helps us to know how you do what you do,
even if we cannot emulate to the pixel. Of special interest was
photo of a gecko, celadon with pouch of a delicate orange. He had a
squirrel with red bowl, blue background with touches of green, a
bluebird, a cardinal, and a dinosaur in the wild.
*Bill Draper - He had honey bees on sunflowers, even lateral views.
*Brian and Drew Jacobs - just turned pro with a new SLR. Cats in
cat-poses, buzzards in a field, geese, white pelicans in shimmering
water, butterflies, turtle, hummer, alligator, snake, fish, a fox.
Those folks learn fast.
*Joan Stephens - The world traveler goes exotica. Land, sea and air
critters from Asia, Africa South America and Antarctica Cassowary
Bird, Capybara (pig), sheep, elephants, penguins (some associating
with Joan), a Yak from Bhutan with colorful harness and trapping.
From the Galapagos Islands, such critters as Red Footed Booby and
Blue Footed Booby. Nice photography, and colorful.
*Ken Parsons - Ken featured the Carnegie Library in his old home
town, displays of insects, and a different species, Ku Klux Klan
*Patty Beasley - She has a standout photo of monarch butterfly,
impeccably detailed, on colorful lantana flowers. Pelican and
dolphin feeding together; a bee on beautiful blue day flower; sea
urchins, dragonfly on barbed wire; cats; butterflies in the dew; and
her loves, spiders, hawks and falcons.
*Bruce Switalla - his photos of squirrels are superb, even to the
sheen on their fur; a dragonfly on blurred background, a blue and
yellow haze; his German Shepherd lying in the grass, head raised in
anticipation; birds; and frogs in action.
*John Hoffmann - dead fish (ugh) from Red Tide in the Gulf; a
spider; unusual colorful spider on a leaf, blurred background; wasp
on purple flower, contrast; dragon flies; dark butterfly on pink
* DB Kline - DB shot a human? body skeleton, several views, and in
his car. Now that's a critter!
