Discusson Group Notes April 10, 2009

Discussion Group

We had 5 members attend the discussion and enjoy the dinner at Denny's this Friday evening.

Terri was very excited as she showed us her new Canon D40 she received for her birthday as a present from Lee. While Lyle being a Nikon man himself, he still couldn't resist looking over the new Canon.

Bonnie still complained (the group said I had to print this) about my Canon D50 still throwing out the error with the card issue.

Lyle talked about his Nikon D3 being able to use 2 cards at the same time.

Hmm, do I detect a little competition amongst photographers. (grin)

John and Terri had another discussion about their phone cameras and the megapixels.

Lyle spoke to us about HDR.

We spoke briefly about flash and how to use in different settings. Lyle talked to us about lighting setups.

We missed Glenn as moderator so we decided to moderate ourselves. Please excuse the brief notes, Glenn does a much better job, I was busy eating and enjoying the conversation...sorry folks. Come join us!!! Bonnie

by Bonnie J Matthews-Franke

Bonnie has been taking pictures since she was a little girl, but she didn�t get into digital photography until about four years ago, just before she joined the club.

Matthews finds the club to be very beneficial to her. “The interaction with other members, being able to ask questions, the workshops and the knowledge that I take away from the club is phenomenal.”

She is very active, attending most of the workshops and field trips. She has missed only a few workshops the last few years and has attended about 70% of the field trips. The fall color trip is one she�s really looking forward to.

When asked what kind of photography she prefers, she said landscapes. She just finished a vacation trip to Oregon where she photographed lighthouses, old barns and covered bridges. “I really like old structures,” she said. She now loves portraits and has her own studio.

Matthews has a Canon 5D MKII and a variety of lenses and accessories. Her favorite lens is a 28-135mm ,70-200mm. & 100mm.

Matthews is our new secretary of the club and has made many changes – to help us grow. One improvement she hopes to make, however, is to archive the meeting notes she takes so new members can have access to them online.

“I�m really proud that the club is growing like it is, and that the workshops are so great.
