The Next Competition Meeting will be in the Navajo Room at the Sun Lakes Country Club at 6:30 pm on Thursday, December 19th.
The subjects, aside from Open, will be:
December 2019 Rotating Subject: Scapes. A Scape is defined as an expanse of scenery. Scapes may be, but are not limited to, landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes, or cityscapes. Human elements are allowed. The image may be either color or monochrome.
December 2019 Special Techniques: Panning. Panning is a camera technique used to capture motion blur and convey movement while keeping a moving subject sharp. To capture a panning shot, choose a moving subject and a shutter speed slow enough to capture its movement. A fast subject like a vehicle will not require as slow of a shutter speed as a person running, for instance. As your subject moves, follow it in the direction that it’s moving. Rotate your camera on the horizontal axis along with the subject to capture a shot with a sharp subject and motion-streaked background.
The Sun Lakes Camera Club is pleased to announce that Fundamentals of Digital Photography, presented by Dan Dragoon, will be offered once again this season. This fun, plain-language course is perfect for those new to Digital Photography, as well as intermediate level photographers seeking to improve their technique. This workshop is open to members and the public, so if you know anyone interested, print them a brochure and registration form.

2019-2020 Rotating Subjects and Techniques, and 2020-2021 Rotating Subjects and Techniques have been released by Wayne Divoky, our Competition Chair.
