Show and Tell, Mini-Seminar, Sunday, November 4, 2018

We’ve all seen some wonderful photos that have come from cell phones…and we’ve all seen some bad ones as well….

I wanted to figure out how to make better quality images with my phone, and set about with the help from PSA friends, tutorials, etc., to find out how. I would like to share some of the things I discovered along the way….

So if you want to know some of the features of your phone camera and learn something about Camera Apps and Photo Apps, that’s what I will be sharing…

Hope you can join us on Sunday evening for the seminar…Oh…and there will be snacks !!!

SHOW AND TELL…Bring with you a flash drive with some images you’d like to share and talk about (from any camera)….time limit per person 5 minutes! (See the PGNS Schedule)

See you there!

Seminar 3: Travel with Mark Wolfson, Monday, October 22

Mark Wolfson, retired Vice President of Henry’s, Canada’s largest independent camera retailer is a graduate of Ryerson University Photographic Arts. In his near half century in the photographic business Mark has witnessed extraordinary changes to the equipment, materials and processes that once defined photography. Mark is a passionate photographer who has traveled extensively through many parts of North America, Europe, Asia and North Africa. His photographs hang in homes and businesses across Canada and the USA. Mark has lectured at York University’s Glendon College, Ryerson University, George Brown College, Photographic Clubs and Organizations across Canada.

In Mark’s presentation “Travel” he will tell us how he prepares for a shoot, the wear and gear he takes along, how he photographs people in foreign lands. He will supply us with tips and tricks, take us to some of his special photographic destinations and entertain us with stories of his adventures.

Please note on Monday night we will be meeting in the Museum Boardroom (entrance by the guard station) instead of the auditorium.

You can see some of his work here.
