Monthly Meeting: One Hour to Learn You Up on Photography with Michael Miller, March 30, 2017 at 7:00pm
This month’s speaker will be Michael Miller. Michael has spent 30 years in the world of commercial and advertising photography. He has spent another 12 years as a professor of photography at California State University, Northridge. Michael’s program is:
“I am planning on teaching you some basics. I am referring to how a camera works and how it controls the light that you let into it. I want to get your camera off automatic and back in your control. Finally, I want to help you design the image to make it more interesting.
“Then I will start asking you questions. Why are you taking photographs in the first place? Who is going to look at them and what do you think they want to see? You already know how to take pictures of naked fish. What about the rest of the fishing trip?
So if you want to get a lot more out of your camera then please join us at the March Monthly Meeting on Thursday, March 30th at 7:00 pm.
See you there! Details.
