SIG Meeting, February 20, 2007 - meeting notes for January 2007
We are a thriving group at our new Central Library location.
Fourteen photo enthusiasts showed up for the meeting.
The meeting opened and closed with outstanding presentations.
The initial presentation was a video clip by Nikon showing their
wireless flash system using the SB 800 flash/flashes. This is a very
profession demonstration using models in a desert background (bright
to failing light) and large groups of people from the Las Vegas High
School (cheer leading, weight lifting, pep club etc).
The second presentation was titled "I know when it is spring" by our
own Ben Luna. Ben used flowers, and birds with amazing picture
transitions along with some very nice background music. A very
professional piece of work. Thanks, Ben!
In-between presentations . . . . our Circles assignment . . .
John Hoffmann showed some bubbles, some travel photos with circles,
and some bicycle riders-lots of circular wheels plus hula hoops.
Bill Draper photographed objects such as a beautifully decorated
china plate, a Miller Light sign, a Honda headlight, and a porthole.
Ken Parson's DVD presentation used only a large globe to illustrate
circles. He partitioned off globe sections using circles again. The
circular parts of the world was shown with added annotation that
emphasized historical and pertinent information.
Ben Luna showed a circular painting containing many more circles. He
also photographed a globe, some colored buttons which of course had
four smaller circular holes to sew through, and finally a round key

Circle of Life (round Indian Blanket wildflower, urchins, rock

and Circle of Friend (Drew hospitalized with broken arm). She also
showed some beautiful sunrise, sunset with is always circular
Eve Kerr showed a large, circular overhead iron decorator item which
looked super against a paneled ceiling. She also showed auto wheel
rims, a metal basketball hoop, a Ferris wheel, and a circular,
slightly lit, tail light. She also had an excellent picture of a
guitar which was focused on the center hole that was accented by the
