May 19, 2018 - SLO Camera Club Annual Barbecue

El Chorro Regional Park Mariposa Day Use Area

Our Fifth Annual Barbecue is on Saturday, May 19th

 The barbecued meat will be served at 1:30 pm, but come earlier to socialize and enjoy snacks.

 The Club is providing barbecued Tri-tip and Chicken cooked to perfection by grill masters Pat & George Brown.  As this is a potluck, we ask that you bring a side dish to share.  Some ideas are:  chips, appetizers, salad, veggies, beans, bread, dessert, beverages (Park does not allow kegs) or anything your heart desires!

 The Club will also provide paper plates, plastic utensils, cups and napkins.

There is a $3 fee per vehicle to enter the park, so you may want to carpool.

We need your RSVP as soon as possible to make sure we have enough food for all!  Please let me know if you will attend by Tues. May 15 at info@slocameraclub.org

Composition Webinar

In this B&H Video, David Brommer starts with cave paintings, quickly works his way through Egyptian and Medieval art and arrives in the Renaissance to demonstrate the advancement of composition and the birth of the Rule of Thirds. From there, he offers a wonderfully comprehensive yet down to earth lesson in photo history, theory and equipment, but most important, he demonstrates the basics of photographic composition and what makes a “good” photo. www.bhphotovideo.com/indepth/photography/tips-solutions/holiday-2012-advanced-composition
