The ZOOM session will be started at 6:45PM to give those attending via this way to get set up and logged in. If nobody joins the ZOOM Session by 7:10 PM, the session will be shut down and you might not be able to get in.
Presentation: At this meeting our Club Member Melanie Brownsmith will provide a Light Table demo and will also bring some props for us to attempt our stop motion skill with water. According to Melanie, “I think people would enjoy the water and maybe a light table demo instead. They would need to bring cameras and tripods if they want to use one. ” These demo’s may not be very useful to those attending via ZOOM.
August Assignment: Shallow Depth of Field
What is considered shallow depth of field?
Shallow depth of field is achieved by shooting photographs with a low f-number, or f-stop — from 1.4 to about 5.6 — to let in more light. This puts your plane of focus between a few inches and a few feet. Depending on your subject and area of focus point, you can blur the foreground or background of your image.
