Digital Photography SIG
This SIG meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7.p.m.
Taking pictures has never been easier. Make use of your Virtual Darkroom and join us!
We play with digital photos from cameras or film scanners. We try to improve them with good software,
and then display them either in print or on screen. It's lots of fun and we all learn together!

Digital Photography SIG 7 PM, Tuesday, August 27, 2019 The Drones are coming… The Drones are coming…. Digital Photography is a big part of drone usage. As the drone flies over the landscape it is able to take video or still shots while traveling at speeds of 50 miles per hour while the wind is blowing. Amazing technology! In May of 2015 Jaime Simpson of Compu-Tech Aerial Solutions demonstrated to CKCS one of his drones in our parking lot. Since then, a lot of things have changed: better and faster drones, better photography equipment and a lot of new FAA rules. Jaime will take us on a tour of how the drone works and records data. He will then show us some of the images the drone took and explain how he uses them. Along with that he will discuss the new FAA rules and guidelines for both commercial and hobbyist drone uses. Join us on August 27, 2019 as Jaime takes us on an updated tour of Drones. Photo contest of the month is “Gnarly Things”. I thought I had better check with Webster to make sure what this word actually means. Apparently it has several meanings. Check out Webster if you want more information! Search your archives for a good shot you have filed away or get out and take some new pictures. Submit your entries to no later than August 26. Join us at 7 PM, Tuesday night August 27, 2019 and bring a friend!


Thanks for all your support!
