March 2018 Photo Quest: Tide Pools

Tide Pools at southern La Jolla Shores during negative tide. La Jolla, California, December 2014.

The March 2018 Photo Quest for our members is “Tide Pools” – a narrower theme than our two previous ones, but one that should be easy for everyone in San Diego: all you need to do is get out to the coast and explore the tide pools with your camera! Preferably at low tide of course, otherwise you may not see too much. 😉

February 2018 Photo Quest: Perspective

Looking straight up into a canopy of Coast Live Oaks.

Is there anything that’s more interesting in photography than playing with perspective? Compress it with a telephoto lens. Exaggerate it with a wide angle lens. Show the relationship of objects in your composition with the use of perspective. Point your camera straight up or straight down for an unusual perspective of the world. And all … Read more…

January 20th Activity: Ramona Hawk Watch

Photo by Steven Cirone

On January 20 we visit a Hawk Watch Event of the Wildlife Research Institute. The Hawk Watch is held every Saturday in January and February – you can go any Saturday, but our club will meet as a group on Saturday, January 20th.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get up close with beautiful birds even when you do not have a long telephoto lens – the birds sitting on perches or with their handlers will make it possible to get much, much closer than you normally would in the wild. Nevertheless, please be extremely respectful to both people and animals.
