Golf Week Magazine
Jim Colton

Although this is not strictly about Jim Colton's photography, it is in my opinion a 'newsworthy' article (for the membership) about one of our club's pre-eminent members. Over several years Jim (a Stanford alumnus) took upon himself to evaluate (and photograph) all 25 of the country's college golf courses featured in Golf Week Magazine's annual review of 'the best'. {A PDF of the source article in Golf Week Magazine, Sept 5, 2016 will be sent separately with the e-announcement to the club.


The accompanying photo was taken by Jim at Ohio State University.

On top of this, Jim dashed off a 68-page eBook entitled "“My Quest to Play the Top 25 College Golf Courses and Find the Best Local Brews” that includes 150 photos.  The book (Kindle format, playable on devices that have the Kindle app) can be downloaded from Amazon for only $5.99 by clicking this link:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IYFUU0C

For those who can't wait to click the link, here's the Amazon intro to the book:

"A devoted golfer embarks on a mission to play all of the Top 25 College golf courses. And guess what? He is thirsty after playing every 18-hole round. So he scouts out the best local watering hole and its best beer. Of course, he has many travel adventures along the way, like watching out for alligators at the University of Florida golf course, getting paired with an army sniper at the Air Force Academy course and dodging a tornado outside of Oklahoma City. This is a fun book about discovering college golf courses, meeting local players, making beer recommendations, and traveling across America multiple times. ... MORE"

Outdoor Photographer Magazine
Jennifer Fraser

Jennifer Fraser's image of the Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley was just published in Outdoor Photographer Magazine's annual Black-and-White issue (see accompanying photo of the magazine).

Jennifer, still enjoying her "15 minutes of fame ...", had this to say:

"Here's the original text for the Outdoor Photographer article! What other members might find of interest is that the editor contacted me (first time that ever happened!) saying she "came across your image 'Dune Waves' in our magazine's online gallery and would like to feature it in the Behind The Shot section of our August 2016 Black-and-White special issue."

I guess the takeaway is that it's good to get one's images out on the web. Even if they don't win prizes; someone might see them!"

Below is the text accompanying the image in the magazine.

“Desert Waves”  by Jennifer Fraser - Mesquite Dunes, Death Valley National Park, California (This image may be viewed on Jennifer's personal web gallery at:  http://jenniferfraser.zenfolio.com/p250523926/h11bc04a8#h11bc04a8
 
"Right light, right place, right equipment, right settings - how many of these conditions ever happen by chance? When all come together by luck, it really seems like magic. That wasn’t the case with this image, however; this was an image I “stalked”.


To prepare for this image, I planned a trip to Mesquite Dunes near Stovepipe Wells in midweek of early Spring, hoping I’d avoid the crowds. The afternoon before the shot, I drove by the dunes to figure out where I should park the next morning, since I knew it would be dark, and how long it would take to drive from my campsite in order to get there at least an hour before dawn to hike out and set up. I drove back, checked the chart for sunrise time and set my alarm clock.


The next early morning I pocketed my Rocket Air Blaster* in case of blowing sand and headed out. I drove to the site counting the miles, parked, turned on my headlamp and walked out in the direction of the dunes. The only factor I hadn’t accounted for was the difficulty of trudging up dunes in deep sand for half a mile, but I certainly was alone! Fortunately, a wind had come up the previous night, blowing away many of the footprints, and as the predawn light seeped into the sky, the ridges in the sand began to appear in deep shadow.


I set up my tripod and discovered that the lower the tripod, the more dramatic the ridges showed. Focusing a third of the way into the distance to maximize depth of field, I began shooting, making sure to bracket the shots. Every minute the changing light created new angles, new shadows, new compositions, and I was dizzy with the possibilities. When the sun came over the mountain, the parking lot began to fill up, as hikers and photographers flooded in. That was OK - I was packing up by then.


It was certainly one of the most magical photographic experiences I’ve had. The shots required very little post-processing in Photoshop: converting to black and white, adjusting the shadows for a true black …a nd deciding whether or not to keep the tiny rock in the shadow on the left. I kept it."

AAvenidas Rose Kleiner Center
Avenidas Rose Kleiner Senior Day Center

The Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center provides adult day care for seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, strokes or other chronic conditions. The Executive Director of the Center is Tom Pamilla, a long time friend of the Palo Alto Camera Club. Tom believed that his patients would benefit from art on the walls of the Center and requested that the Camera Club have some of its members display some of their photographs at the Center. Several members now have their photographs on display and Tom reports that the patients find the displays interesting and uplifting. Tom is very appreciative of PACC providing art for his patients. In addition to being able to display your work, this is also an opportunity to help bring some joy to the patients at the Center. The patients are at the Center until 2:30 every weekday. Therefore we have access to the Center from 2:30 to 5:00 every weekday to hang photographs or to bring visitors to see our photographs. If you would like to exhibit at the Rose Kleiner Center, contact Jim Colton.

San Luis Obispo Museum of Art , San Luis Obispo
Robert Schonfisch, Charles Anselmo
(From PRESS RELEASE): In February, 2014, eight California photographers followed fine art photographer Charles Anselmo into Havana on a cultural tour. One week later, they left Cuba with hearts filled with affection for the friendly and generous Cuban people, and with heads spinning with the sights and sounds of a country seemingly living in the past. It was an amazing experience! They ventured from the touristy Habana Vieja (“Old Havana”) into the vibrant neighborhoods where the local residents socialized and played in the streets – and sometimes welcomed the photographers into their homes.  Deteriorating buildings, built in the early twentieth century, practically crumbled before their eyes. Son and Danzon music filled the air as they watched swaying dancers in the plaza. Old American cars, now many of them taxis, paraded up and down the Malecon, Havana’s long seafront. This unique photography exhibit presents significant – and sometimes emotional - images from the Cuban tour.  It includes 3 prints each from club members Robert Schonfisch (sample, left image below) &  group leader Charles Anselmo (sample, right image below),  as well as prints by seven photographers from the Central CA Coast.  A collection of the photographers’ Havana images will be displayed in a slideshow throughout the exhibit in the McMeen Gallery. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Friday, August 7,  from 6 - 9pm. The show runs through Aug 30.  On Sat Aug 8 at 2pm, Charles Anselmo will discuss  "Cuba, Social Context and the Photographic Image" in the Nybak Wing of the museum. Location: McMeen Gallery, San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.  1010 Broad St., San Luis Obispo, CA (MAP & directions)

San Alejandro Academy of Fine Art, Havana, Cuba (MAP)
Charles Anselmo
These images by member (and Cuba Workshop leader) Charles Anselmo, can best be described in his own words: "Engaging the complexities of urban context, Memoria Eidética explores a visceral intersection of form, process and memory in specifically social terms. Utilizing a dichotomy of visual states through the use of translucent silk photographic prints which build to the scale of a physical place, these wall-sized images present an interplay between the transcendent ideality of city design, and the empirical reality later processed through actual community and the multi-faceted narratives of social life. The semi-transparent silk medium of the images suggest an interpretation of the city's structural history and the formation of a newly emergent urban habitat. Perception changes memory as we deconstruct the past, and within this process the relevance of time is discretely conveyed by the gently kinetic nature of silk, resonant with a sense of history and transience, the parameters of memory and the dynamism of change." (A reception has already been held.) MAP

Jennifer Fraser
"There are 12 prints from my visit to Havana, Cuba, three of which are canvas prints in floater frames. The show will be at Philz until the end of June. (Open daily from 6:30 am to 8 pm.) I tried something different with the show, which is to make it somewhat educational by directing viewers to a web page I created of the images,  using a program called "Thinklink". In this program, the artist embeds links into her/his images that lead to text explanations or other web pages that tell more about the image. When the viewer clicks the small circles or arrows in the image, s/he is connected to these explanations. My Thinklink web page is entitled 'Havana, The City With Her Back to the Sea'." The image below is entitled "The Fundamentals of Baseball". Jennifer Fraser

Deborah states: 

"Although I photograph in many other genres (such as landscape), I am particularly drawn to “macro photography” – photographing subjects up close.  Close-up photography enables the viewer to appreciate:

o  the beauty of form, texture and pattern

o  the power of color or monochrome (single color, such as black and white, or single hue, such as teal or rose).

The subjects include natural subjects – flowers, nautilus shells, and objects found on my favorite beaches – and also raindrops on a car (illuminated by the neon sign from a diner).

I invite you to view this exhibit with the understanding that Monica's Salon is a place of business.  Please 'tread lightly' when you visit the salon."

Stevenson House
Alex Greenwood

"I have been fascinated with Cowboys and the Old West since I was young.  About twenty years ago I became aware that this way of life seemed to be gradually disappearing.  And then I discovered the passion that many small towns had for the Cowboy lifestyle.  It started with Taylorsville, a town of 250 in the Sierras between Quincy and Greenville.  Using the modern technology of the internet, I learned of more small California towns that put on a rodeo once a year, usually between late spring and early fall. The small arenas put the spectators close to the action, relatively easy pickins for a 300mm lens.

For the Stevenson House exhibit, I have selected eight pictures, which depict several of the classic rodeo events:  bull riding, bronc riding, steer wrestling and calf roping. The exhibit  will run through the end of November.

There will be a reception and presentation for the residents of Stevenson House on Saturday August 3, 2013 at 7:00PM.  I would be pleased to see any Club members who can make it."

Address: 455 E. Charleston Road, Palo Alto.  Parking is available at the Unitarian Universalist Church, just east of Stevenson House, across the footbridge.

Bart will provide an overview of DSLR video capabilities and limitations, gear including editing software, audio mixing and music, briefly cover cellphone and tablet use also. He will show you how you can use short videos to support your stills, introduce your work or yourself and better tell a story.  

At it's core filmmaking is using images to tell a story, if a picture is worth a thousand words short clips are novels!  

You will also meet the GoPro, a tiny go anywhere video camera that can also shoot stills, it is a tool every photographer should be aware of.  

This will be an interactive session with plenty of time for discussion.  We will see a few video clips and shorts shot on tablets, the GoPro and DSLRs.

Bart's introduction to photography was borrowing his dad's Super 8 film camera to make movies with his friends in high school. Torn between wanting to be a cinematographer and a marine biologist, he listened to his practical father and studied engineering and business, settling for still photography as a hobby. He recently returned to the classroom, completing the Producing and Directing Program at Berkeley Digital Film Institute. 

He now divides his time between stills and video, and has found a way to incorporate both into professional and volunteer work.  He is consulting for a start up near night vision camera company founded by an Academy Award winning nature cinematographer, assisting with marketing and managing a project that modifies the popular GoPro camera, adding longer length massive depth of field lenses. 

His volunteer work includes The Ocean Ambassadors Program- helping to promote California's new network of marine protected areas, he is an on the water naturalist with NOAA's Team Ocean in Monterey and Elkhorn Slough and serves on the Citizen Advisory Board of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Bart is one of only a handful of people to complete the 25 mile solo unsupported crossing of Monterey Bay by kayak, a feat he accomplished in 2010.

Bill Jackson

Two images by Bill Jackson, one of which is shown here (Hurricane in Havana), were accepted into “Sustainable Silicon Valley’s Annual Summit 2013”, a component of which is a display of art that best represents the theme of “sustainability”.

He also shared the following: “I had an image in last year’s Summit as well (which was also used for the cover of the agency’s brochure).  I encourage any club member who supports earth-based sustainable solutions to enter your work that is consistent with this theme in next year’s Summit.  It is held in May of each year and is, in my opinion, a worthy cause."

Sustainable SV Summit’s goals as stated on its website:  “In the areas of water, energy and smart technology, the Summit catalyzes action for a more sustainable future by bringing together leaders from many sectors to understand barriers and exchange insights. Build bridges and find opportunities for collaboration and innovation, breakthroughs, results.”
