My favorite photography subjects have to be wildlife and
landscape. Certainly an Antarctica trip fills the bill.
Penguins, and penguins and penguins and penguins. Oh, and
beautiful snowy, ice scenes and icebergs. Plus, and seals, sea
lions, southern elephant seals and a wealth of bird varieties beyond
belief. One of the most popular questions/comments I have
experienced is, isn't it cold there? Well, for one thing, travel
to Antarctica is in the area's spring and summer where the temperatures
are quite nice or tolerable. Plus, of course, the days are
longer. I was born in the state of Minnesota in the month of
February. I should be concerned about cold? Travel
companies provide with warm, water proof pants and jackets and those
lovely muck boots. Dress for the occasion and enjoy the moment.
Anita Ritenour –
Antarctica Through the Lens of the Photographer
is, to a degree, extreme photography. Protecting camera equipment
from the elements and dealing with the conditions at hand is
imperative. I was blown away by my trip's connection with the
polar photographers and explorers past and present. Early 1900
photographers brought back images that were amazing considering the
condition they experienced. I will be presenting a two part
program. The first part, a Power Point presentation focusing on
past photographers work comparing to today's possibilities. Then,
a slide show of my South American adventure including Buenos Aires, The
Falklands, South Georgia Island and Antarctica.
I hope it is both informative and entertaining.
Come and join us for an informative discussion.
We are always looking for programs to present at
meeting. If you have a topic related to photography that you’d like to
present, please contact Chuck Wyke.
Every meeting showcases a Main Program and a Show and Tell (where each member may bring up to 3
images on the subject of our Monthly Challenge (your interpretation!)
or any subject, whether to ask for some ideas on how to make them
better or just to show us what you've been up to.) and Field
Trip images featuring photos taken by our members at a recent
Submissions For "Field Trip Shows" &
"Show and Tell"
Digital images (JPGs only) must be submitted on a
CD or Flash Drive clearly
marked with your name. Images must be in the sRGB color space and sized
to at least 1024x768 pixels and no larger than 1800 pixels on the
longest side of the image. Use your name as the first part of the file

your name is Mary Smith, then you would name your files: marysmith1.jpg, marysmith2.jpg, etc. File names for the Field Trip should start with "FT" For more
assistance, see our tutorial on How
to Prepare Digital Images for Projection.
