Doors will open at 6:30 pm. 6:30 to 7:00 pm will be time for socializing.

Members as well as interested potential members are invited to join us.

Join us on August 15th, as we learn together what it takes to make beautiful pictures using focus stacking.

Clifford Martin will make a presentation on the topic of Focus Stacking, discussing the principles behind the process, and when it is appropriate for Nature Photographers to use this technique. The discussion will include techniques for taking the ‘stack’ photos, a list of camera models with focus stacking capabilities built-in, accessary equipment that is useful in taking the photos, and software used to process the images. There will be a live demo of taking a series of Focus Stack images and then processing those images through a couple of different software packages.
