2016 January Schedule

There are still openings in our 2015-16 schedule. If you have any suggestions for 2016, please send Ron Peiffer and Chuck Gallegos an email at programs@arundelcameraclub.org.

January 2: Exhibit Setup – At 10:00 AM we will meet at the Glen Burnie Regional Library to setup our annual exhibit. Each member can bring three to four images matted, framed, ready to hang with wire on the back. We will need a ladder and t-pins or drapery hooks to hang the art work. Work cannot be listed for sale. Business cards may not be displayed with the exhibits. It is appropriate to display the photograph’s title, the name of the photographer, and their town of residence. (For example: “Still Life” by Janet Jones of Crofton.)

January 6: Program: Macro Tabletop Night – Club members will bring their cameras and stuff to photograph. The challenge will be macro photography. Good items to bring include anything but flowers are always popular. If you have strobes bring them. Also backdrops and tablecloths can be useful. Unlimited members will work with novice members to share tips and tricks to macro photography.

January 13: Contest – We will hold our January Digital contest for both novice and unlimited members. Only paid members may compete. Members may submit up to three digital images. The theme will be “Open” so anything goes. The rules for competitions are available at http://arundelcameraclub.org/rules-summary/

January 20: Program: How Did You Do That? Part II – Part I went so well back in November, we have decided to give it another go letting other photographers show us how they post processed their images to get the final works of art.

January 23: Field Trip – Smithsonian Insect Zoo – We will drive down to D.C. to visit the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, O. Orkin Insect Zoo and Butterfly Pavilion. The museum is open from 10:00 AM until 5:30 PM daily. Tarantula Feeding Demonstrations Sat-Sun 11:30, 12:30 & 1:30

MAN RAY–HUMAN EQUATIONS A JOURNEY FROM MATHEMATICS TO SHAKESPEARE

Greetings all,

I wanted to call your attention to a couple of photography-related things I’ve recently seen. The first is an exhibit at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. titled Man Ray – Human Equations. The short version description is this: Man Ray discovered a series of 3D mathematical models in a Paris University in the early 1930s and first lit and oriented them for the purposes of making photographic abstracts which he then used as source material for paintings. The exhibit features the paintings and some of the original models and photographs on which they’re based.

What I found interesting about the exhibit from a photography standpoint is how Man Ray saw human forms in the models and used lighting and composition to interpret them in photographs and paintings. If you’ve ever struggled with how you might photograph sculpture in a way to transform it into something of your making this exhibit will give you plenty of food for thought.

The second item is a documentary on photographer Dorothea Lange. It’s titled American Masters – Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning. It was produced in 2014 and recently became available as a free streaming offer on Amazon Prime Instant Video. It’s available on DVD and probably other streaming services as well. I knew a little bit about her and her work, but had never really researched her like I have many other photographers. Long story short, she was an amazingly talented photographer, and an especially gifted environmental portraitist.
