Wayne F. Divoky This month our featured photograph is


the last of the winning photographs from the club’s year and competition. Bill Lewis’ Dew on Hellebore (hellebore is the name of the plant) won Print of the Year in Class A. Bill was in Mount Rainer National


Park before sunrise taking this shot. He used his Nikon D-700 DSLR with a Nikon 105mm macro lens. Note the shallow depth of fi eld characteristic of the macro lens in this image. A macro lens allows the photographer to create an image in the camera that is close to full size, but to achieve this, the photographer must be very close to the subject. In Bill’s case, he had to use a tripod to hold the camera steady and he had to hope there was no wind to disturb the leaf. Since this image was taken before


sunrise, the light was very fl at. Bill had to increase the contrast in the image in Photoshop. In addition, he burned in the corners of the image slightly to create a vignette. This helps guide the viewer’s eye to the center of the image and the leaf and drop.


Congratulations Bill. This month the club is planning a fi eld


trip to the zoo. The date is tentatively set for Monday, September 10. Details will be made available on the club’s website and distributed to club members via MeetUp.


Both club and statewide Arizona Camera


Club Council and ACCC competitions will begin in October. The club’s October competition will


include three categories. OPEN, meaning any subject matter; ROTATING, the assigned subject is bridges; and SPECIAL TECHNIQUES, the specifi ed technique is panoramas. The defi nition provided by the Competition Committee for the rotations subject is: Bridge: Image of a physical bridge or part of a bridge; a structure built to span physical obstacles such as a body of water, a valley, or a road for the purpose of providing passage over that obstacle. The bridge must be the predominant subject in the image. Statewide ACCC competition entry


deadline will be in early October with both prints and digital images being accepted. The Rotating subject for the fall competition is shadows. The ACCC did not provide any defi nition for this subject. If photography is an activity that


interests you, attend one of our regular meetings in the fall. Visit our website https:// sites.google.com/site/sunlakescameraclub for samples of club members’
