Macro photography (or photomacrography or macrography, and sometimes macrophotography), is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects and living organisms like insects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size (though macrophotography technically refers to the art of making very large photographs). By the original definition, a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative or image sensor is life size or greater. However, in some uses it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size.
New members will be invited to submit photos for the evening presentation.

We are looking at an evening of photography that incorporates camera techniques such as panning, intentional camera movement, long exposures, time-lapse, creative dynamic techniques and advanced post-processing techniques in the creative process. A call for proposals will be sent to members in January 2020.
An evening dedicated to members' AV shows
David will discuss how shooting with only one photo length - in his case a 28 mm prime lens- can improve your previsualization and speed when photographing both people and landscapes. He will illustrate his presentation with examples from his personal projects, assignment photos, street photography and landscapes in both black & white and colour.
There will be a presentation of photographs this evening from several of the Club members who have travelled to China with Edwin and Mary Lee as well as from other Club members who have travelled there through other means. Efforts are being made to present photos from as many diverse regions of China as possible.
The topic this year is Dusk to Dawn
