Warren von Uffel has kindly offered to lead the presentations and demos. Warren will lead off the meeting with his brief presentation and demonstration of the benefits of using extension tubes with telephoto zoom lenses. Most photographers use extension tubes for macro photography. However you may not be aware that they can also be used with telephoto lenses (e.g., 100-400mm zoom) to photograph subjects in ways that you may not have previously considered.
We are also soliciting ALL members to offer to volunteer to give a brief talk and demo (e.g., 15 to 20 minute) for this first meeting.
The topic should be something that is of a practical nature that members can benefit by. Some examples - an in-the-field technique or camera mode of operation that you find to be helpful; your experience with a new camera model or lens; a helpful accessory; a new/updated post processing application, a helpful post processing technique, or how to use a specific post processing tool set. Do not be concerned if you are unsure whether a topic that you have in mind may have been previously presented. More than likely, it has not. And if it has been presented, a refresher is always helpful and we have so many new members that it is very likely they had not attended a previous presentation of a given topic.
Please contact Warren (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your presentation idea.
We can provide a laptop if you need one. The classroom is equipped with a wall mounted monitor (HDMI connection).
Our DSLR Users Group meetings are a wonderful opportunity for you to share your knowledge of, and experience with, in-the-field photographic techniques, new DSLR equipment and accessories, post processing applications and their tools, or perhaps photographic workshops and travel trips to destinations that you may have recently visited. And it is of course a terrific way to meet other members that may share your photographic interests and that may use the same camera equipment so that you can exchange helpful information about camera and menu settings, etc..
Meeting will be held at the Robinson Nature Center:
