The Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

Club member Cathy Abers-Kimball will present a variety of images emphasizing how placing your camera can change the point of view of your photo. She is a graphic artist and operates the design firm 2ndLook Graphic Design in Jamestown.

The meeting will begin with topics of mid-range close-up and photographing in fog. The presentation on mid-range close-up will be about using the aperture extremes of your camera to depict the same subject and will encourage folks to think about depth of field affects the relationship of objects. Photographing in fog may be fun but it presents challenges in exposure and focusing.

Then there will be a 15-minute tech talk on ideas to back up your images and other computer files. Also more tips will be shared, for example, long nighttime exposures to show the stars.

A social time will follow the program.

Visitors are asked to pay $5, which can be applied toward the annual membership of $30 if application is made by the next meeting.

Benefits of membership are discounts on photography classes, field trips and the right to show photos at club exhibits.
