Saturday, July 1st meeting was very well attended. John Wood's presentation of strobe high-speed photography was outstanding, as was Cheri Kennedy's photo show on their trip to Germany. Other images shared including New Mexico (George McMahon) and New York (Howie Zatulove), both very informative.
These Summer meetings have turned out surprisingly well attended and we are all learning new tricks of the trade.
July 18th Potluck is set to start at 4 PM. Bring something to share. Rose and Dan will find enough pulled-pork as asked for. Please feel free to donate a small amount to help out on the main meat dish.
July 24th Darksky photoshoot at Burro Creek Campground. Timed to the new-moon phase and located 95 miles from Sun City, 60 miles north of Wickenburg and 18 miles south of Wikieup) in very dark skies. This is your chance to see what it is like to capture truly remarkable dark sky images. A mirror-less or DSLR camera with a wide lens (less than 30 mm) is almost a must. Bring a tripod and a remote shutter release (or use your 2-second delay timer). We will meet up in the clubroom at 10:30 that morning to double check equipment and weather.
Rose and Dan will go up a bit early to set up their tent. Let us know that morning if you want to BBQ or some other activity while there.
