Here’s a website you can go to and find out your shutter count.
Go to http://myshuttercount.com/.
Upload a file and you’ll get your shutter count.
I just did that for my one Nikon D300s and came up with 62,539.
The question is – how do I find out how many I probably have left before the shutter breaks.

And as promised I wanted to get details out to you about our November 9th workshop “Better People Pictures & Tips & Tricks in Photo Shop Workshop.” This workshop is extremely limited to size due to space limitation – we will have to cut off registration after twelve (12) participants per class. If you are interested call 410-280-3535 or contact us http://www.krrphotography.com/contact_us now to reserve your space or to find out more information. Classes are divided into two sessions so you can take one or both of the classes. Class times are 9-12 & 1-4. Price for one workshop is $65 and for both $85 and as a SPECIAL PRICE for being a Camera Club member mention the club and take off $10 for either or both sessions.

Here is a little advance information about a special upcoming program:
A Passion for Wildlife, the Stories Behind the Images by Irene Henke-Sacilotto
The photos above appear on the photographer’s home page and were taken by our speaker for the October 16 meeting.
The Club is happy to present a special program by photographer Irene Hinke-Sacilotto. Irene has led a number of tours under the auspices of OSPREY Photo Workshops and Tours. Many of her workshops have been conducted for zoos, nature centers, and organizations like the National Wildlife Federation. A Johns Hopkins University lecturer, she often conducts seminars for numerous educational institutions and bird and photo clubs, including the New England Council of Camera Clubs. Irene’s how-to articles have been published in Shutterbug’s Outdoor and Nature Photography, Outdoor Photographer, and Birding magazines. She has also been featured in numerous other outdoor and birding magazines, including Audubon, National Geographic, National Park Service, and the Sierra Club. We are very fortunate to have her talk to our Club this month and hope you can be there. Please tell your friends about this special program. If you want to learn more about Irene and her photography, please visit her website:
We wanted to get this out to you early so you can share the information with your friends and fellow photographers. Hope to see you there.
Our next competition will be this Wednesday September 25, 2013. We will have both our Slides and Color competitions. You may enter three slides and three color prints.
The theme this month is Open, so anything goes.
Competition rules, which include how to prepare your digital, slide, and print entries, are also posted on our website http://arundelcameraclub.org/rules-summary/
- Slides – Each slide must have a large dot on the bottom left corner to indicate proper projection. To determine proper placement of the dot, hold the slide up to a light source as it would appear on the screen. Place the dot in the lower left corner on the side of the slide facing you. The contestant’s name, picture title and class must appear on the slide.
- Color Prints – Prints must be matted. The print and mat assembly may not exceed 20”in size on the longest edge. The contestant’s name, picture title, category, class, and contest date (month/year) must appear on the back of each print.
Our club picnic is next Sunday September 15 at 4:00pm
1335 Old Mountain Road, Pasadena, 21122
The club pays for the cost of the hamburgers/hotdogs/buns/paper products and sodas/ice. Everyone needs to bring a covered dish (side dish, dessert, or snacks) and if so inclined alcoholic beverages. It would also help to bring lawn and beach chairs.
You can find the updated club schedule here.
We received the following invite from NIH Camera Club http://www.nihcameraclub.com/
On Monday, July 8th, from 7 to 9 PM, NIH Camera Club members Greg Holden and Shaun Moss will explain their approaches to shooting and processing HDR images.
HDR (high dynamic range) photography is a useful approach to shooting when the range of light in an image, from light to dark, is too great to be captured in a single exposure. Normally, one would be faced with the choice of exposing for the highlights, in which case risking plunging the dark tones into detail-less shadows, or exposing for the shadows, in which case the highlights may blow out. With HDR photography, one shoots a series of photographs – three, five, seven or more – at different exposure values, thereby captured the entire range of light in the scene, then processes them into a single, correctly exposed image in post-processing.
Greg and Shaun will:
- explain the theory of HDR photography;
- discuss shooting situations in which HDR may be appropriate;
- illustrate how to set up a camera to use in-camera auto exposure bracketing to shoot a series of images at different exposure values;
- explain how to read the histograms of the resultant images to ensure one has captured the necessary range of exposures;
- demonstrate the post-processing of multiple images into a single HDR image, using Photoshop and Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.
What: HDR Workshop
When: Monday, July 8th, 7-9 PM
Where: Art Room, Five Star Premier Residence, 8100 Connecticut Avenue, Chevy Chase
