Bella Vista/Bentonville Photography Club
June 19, 2018
The Bella Vista/Bentonville Photography Club met June 19, 2018 at Guaranty Bank in Jane, Missouri for their regular monthly meeting.
“How to Photograph Fireworks” was the subject of the BVPC June 19th meeting in preparation for photographing local fireworks displays.
President, Douglas Keck, presented the program highlighting the following suggested points: Use a tripod and shutter release, pick your spot and set focus before it gets dark and then set focus to manual, add a background for interest, set ISO at 100 with a f-stop around F8 and using the “bulb mode” setting for shutter speed, hold the shutter release at the start of and during the burst and let go as the display starts to fade away.
June’s monthly contest was “Water; Beat the Heat”. Toni Hyde won first place with her photograph of kids behind the waterfall at Tanyard Creek. Becky Brubaker won second place and Sharron Kerr won third place.
Club members will meet on Sunday, June 24, at the Pea Ridge fireworks display to practice fireworks techniques as the July monthly contest will be “Fireworks”.
The next meeting of the club will be held on July 17th at 6:00 p.m. at the Guaranty Bank in Jane, MO.
