Monthly meeting:

On Thursday February 13 at 6 p.m. at the Komohana Agriculture Research & Extension Center, 875 Komohana St., Room D-202, member Chris King will give a talk entitled "ETTR - Taming the Noise Monster. " ETTR (Expose to the Right) is an old tool from the early digital photography days which has been recently resurrected to produce Single Shot HDR (High Dynamic Range) images and to control the noise in high ISO images. Using a collection of his images, both keepers and rejects, he will discuss this technique and show how it can be a real addition to the tools a photographer has at his/ her disposal during difficult photography problems such as high dynamic range and low light situations. No previous knowledge of technical photography is required as he will review terms and problems during the presentation. As usual, questions are welcome during the presentation.

Refreshments are always welcome!

See you there!
