Monthly meeting: November 10 at 6 p.m. at Komohana Agriculture Research & Extension Center Room D-202 (875 Komohana St., Hilo). Lee Schechtman will present a talk entitled My Photographic Evolution: "As I have progressed on my 50+ year photographic journey, my criteria of what constitutes a "good" photograph have evolved along with the equipment and media. For this presentation, my first to HPS, I will share a few examples of my work and equipment over these many years. My evolution began as a 7 year old with a 120 film twin lens reflex and hand-held light meter and progressed to a 9 mm "spy camera", followed by 35 mm film camera, and finally to my current digital equipment. Although by my current standards, much of my old work may not be "good" photographs, at the time I thought they were winners."
Photo Challenge: Members are invited to present up to 3 images that "Tell a Story"! Bring 3 images on a jump drive, 1024 pixels in longest dimension.
