MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRESIDENT:
LYNNE KELMAN /CRESCENT BEACH PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB: 2018/19
Here is the run down for the first couple of months for our Crescent Beach Photo Club—–some events could change—not all is written in stone—-your executive is meeting this week to go over the upcoming year—-but I wanted to keep you abreast of what is happening—IT’S YOUR CLUB——any suggestions for speakers/activities/workshops—please contact me—-Lynne Kelman/President
At the end of August / early September look for our first “Photo Outing of the club year—-out toward Abbotsford—more to be announced—–
September 5th—-our first night back—invite guests/friends—there will be an article in the newspaper inviting possible new members /guests for this one—–
Crescent Beach Photography Club welcomes members and guests alike to our first meeting of the fall season—The date is Wednesday September 5th—-doors open at 7pm, evening starts at 7:15pm—-Our presenter for this first night will be Ian MacDonald—Vancouver based photographer, writer, educator & speaker and Fujifilm Brand Ambassador. Ian will share with us his knowledge and images of “Street Photography”—– A street photographer understands that street photography is about people, not camera settings. It is about moments, not perfect exposures. A well crafted street photograph tells a story. Come learn from Ian as he takes us through the steps to telling your own street stories.
September 19th—–We will be showing and discussing our Summer Theme and catching up with what’s happening——Scott and Karen will be away for this and so our Derek Hayes will be in charge of the evening—–see note from Scott on submitting on the website:
We will also “catch up” this evening on what is going to be happening over the club year—–
At a date TBA in October we will be judging our CAPA FINE ART images from you, our own club members “off sight”—-submission info: and why off site to be discussed at the Sept 19th meeting—–
October 3rd—-TBA—either a speaker or a Members Night—-
October 17th—–Bring your submissions for the Surrey Art Gallery Print Exhibition by Crescent Beach Photographers—–more about the how’s at the Sept.19th meeting–—
October 31st—–We will be showing our September theme “Machinery”—-and will have an outside guest to discuss and evaluate the images—–
More information on the year to follow——-Lynne Kelman
Mandate: 2018/ 2019:
To promote and advance photography as both a technical and a creative art form and to mentor those new to photography.
To provide instruction, demonstrations and lectures that will teach and provide encouragement and inspiration, in all forms/workshops/lectures/hands on.
To enjoy photography in a social environment as a meeting place for like minded people:
My goal for the next two years is for us to grow our knowledge of photography, by listening to speakers who will teach us from the basics to beyond, who will provide stimulation and inspiration and who will help us better our photography and teach us to “see”. I hope to provide interesting lecturers as well as demonstrations and hands on learning. We will ask outside judges not only to score, but also to critique/review in depth the photographs that we submit for our theme nights and for competitions, so that we can learn from their expertise and knowledge and can go that step forward in knowing where advancements can be made.
We will welcome new members and strive to share our combined knowledge with them. We will identify our individual strengths and invite those new to photography to ask questions of us.
Our Executive is made up of a team of passionate photographers who are excited to put forth new ideas to help stimulate us. Our theme leader Scott has been working on new ideas for our monthly themes and we will continue with our outings adventures with a lean toward preparing us for upcoming competitions.
One of our changes this year will be to start meetings at 7:15pm rather than 7:30pm—-the doors will be open at 7pm or just before, for you to socialise with friends, but this extra 15 minutes gives us that little extra time to spend on learning about photography.
Software tip for managing out of control photo collections.
This is just a tip for those who are trying to make sense out of a mixed up collection of photos on your PC or Mac. You know you have lots of photos on your machine but you also know that you have a lot of duplicates. Web versions, slideshow versions etc. as well as your full sized out of the camera JPG or RAW files.
Here are links to some software that may help tame the mess.
NUMBER ONE THING, BACKUP.
Be sure you have a complete backup of your photos before attempting to clean them up. Hard drives are cheap and a good backup can prevent a lot of hair pulling and teeth grinding.
Best one that I have used is a free one (donations welcome.
Sorts and finds duplicates, easy to use and has Autoselect to choose duplicates with an easy to use slider to determine how exact the match is. Not fast but very accurate.
I found it so good that I went to the trouble of copying all my images from Mac to a
Windows Fat 32 formatted hard drive so I could run this program. After sorting I will copy them back to the Mac and update Lightroom catalogs.
Several good ones but all of the Mac versions tend to find duplicates that are not really duplicates, eg: multi frame shots where the image only changes by a fraction etc. You have to go through and check the found set to ensure there are no errors. Easy to do as they display images side by side and one click can cancel the marking.
Photo Sweeper https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photosweeper/id463362050?mt=12
Photo sorters, File sorters
Big Mean Folder Machine http://www.publicspace.net/BigMeanFolderMachine/
Will sort from multiple folders to single folder or from single folder to a folder structure based on size, name, etc. Can rename or just add a series letter or number when encountering duplicate file names.
Beautiful Backup http://www.beautifulbackup.com/
Will sort your photos based on the metadata within as well as videos. It can create any kind of folder structure you wish based on templates. It can also be set to filter out small images (you decide on size) and place them in a separate folder on your destination.
I use this one to collect images into Year/Year/Month/Day format and then read them directly into Lightroom.
I know there are some out there. Send me some links if you have used them and I will add them to the list.
Remember rule number one, BACKUP
President’s Report 2013-2014 Year
We had a full and varied program this year with a number of excellent external speakers including Nick Didlick (twice), on news and Olympic photography, and video; John Gordon, on bird photography; Allen Bargen on the philosophy of judging; Francois Cleroux on the history of photography; Rick Church on aerial photography; Adam Gibbs on landscape photography; and Ursula Easterbrook on her trip across Canada. In addition we had presentations by members, including Lynne Kelman on Topaz; Karen Kroeker on embroidered photos; Brian Palmer on video; and Thomas Dethlefsen on his trip to Tanzania.
We had outings, field trips or workshops by Deb Reny to Granville Island and Downtown Christmas lights; an inter-club trip to Point Roberts to photograph eagles, arranged by John Ostaf of the Delta club; and a landscape workshop to Golden Ears Park with landscape photography professional Adam Gibbs. I have been personally disappointed by a relatively low level of member participation in these excellent opportunities and hope to encourage more members to participate next year.
We entered many external competitions, both local and CAPA arranged, and hosted the fall 2013 CAPA Print Competition. And we had a successful Black and White Print Competition, something for which our club is well known. Many members assisted with this to make the evening a success, and I thank them all. Thanks to digital chair Thomas Dethlefsen, print chair Geoff Hayes, and CAPA competitions chair Geoff Milne. Finally we had many intra-club theme competitions; thanks to Glenis Lyttek for looking after those.
We also took part in an project and exhibition at the White Rock Museum, pairing member-taken photos with archival photos from the museum’s collection to create “Then and Now” pairs to be displayed and then sold to help the museum.

Sheldon met Robert last year in Palm Springs and he explained his technique which is duplicated in the two videos on his website. It may be a technique some of our club members may wish to try out.
