Ten in Ten Meeting Announced

 The club is putting together an innovative new program format to allow members to share their work in a brisk and orderly fashion that’s sure to be of interest to all. In the new “Ten in Ten” meeting participating photographers will have ten minutes to present ten images and provide the background as they see fit. These ten images can have any theme you wish: your best from 2014, a short visual travelogue, or a project you are working on.

If you want to share Ten in Ten sign up here. We will take the first ten who sign up and you will be notified if you are selected. If so, bring your images on a USB storage device to the meeting. Please use the competition format for the images. (Digital images should be in sRGB, JPEG format (.jpg) at a maximum size of 1920 pixels on the long side and at a resolution of 300 ppi.)

PhotoOp 15 Speaker Announced

We are pleased to announce our next PhotoOp15 speaker will be Moose Peterson. Moose is a prolific author, award-winning photographer and a Nikon Ambassador. He will center his presentation around two popular topics: landscape and wildlife photography.

Iconic Monument Valley Fieldtrip Coming Up - REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED

The Wasatch Camera Club announces its first overnight field trip to Monument Valley! Join fellow club members May 14-17, 2015 in the heart of the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona. Hone your landscape photography skills, hang out with others passionate about the art, and capture some awe-inspiring shots.

As one of the most dramatic, iconic landscapes in North America, Monument Valley is the quintessential symbol of the American West. Sandstone buttes, many over 1,000 feet tall, rise above the valley floor resulting in a mystical place of gigantic proportions.

During field trip, we will have a Navajo guide to help us explore the remote backcountry not accessible to the general public. The full itinerary has yet to be determined, but other stops may include Natural Bridges National Monument, House on Fire, Fallen Roof, Mexican Hat, Valley of the Gods, and Gooseneck State Park. Dawn, sunset, night photography...they’re all game.

Participation will be limited to 10 members. There will be a $50 non-refundable deposit required for the guide’s service. Participants will cover their own travel/lodging costs and there will be additional fees. Stay tuned for more information.

Note: REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED Registration will be opened in an upcoming e-mail, so watch your inbox carefully. If the trip fills up, your registration will be automatically added to a waiting list. Successful registrants will be notified by e-mail within 24 hours after the registration open e-mail. They will post their deposits at that time.

From Mundane to Magnificent Photoshop Workshop

Doug Pizac -- who has presented many informative and educational Wasatch Camera Club workshops (see bio below) -- will demonstrate some simple and quick Photoshop techniques that can turn mundane images into magnificent art. When prints were made in a wet darkroom a variety of tools and tricks were used to bring out detail and enhance/expand the tonal range.  Starting  with Camera Raw, Doug will show you the equivalents of hot developer, hot water, potassium ferrocyanide, etc. when using PS burn and dodge tools.  In addition, if you have an image that you would like to offer as a demo, bring it on a flash drive that is formatted for use on a PC laptop.

When: Tuesday, January 13, 6:30pm
Where: SLC Downtown Library, Conference Room 4 (4th Floor)

Bio: Doug gained his expert photography and darkroom skills through multiple internships with photographers, editors and master printers at National Geographic during college and a workshop with Ansel Adams before his death. With his computer programming knowledge he has been able to translate these procedures to Photoshop.  He also has Adobe certification in Photoshop.  After 30+ years with The Associated Press as a staff photographer he now freelances and is transferring his decades of experience to college students through teaching.

Winter Steam Festival Field Trip - CANCELLED

Due to the weather forecast of a Snowstorm for Sunday 28th with winter storm warnings, we have decided to cancel the field trip to the Golden Spike Train Museum. We feel the long drive (3 hours round trip) in those road conditions would probably not be a good idea. Our apologies and I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year.
