Tomorrow I go for my first Colonoscopy. I wonder what the camera will see? I’ve seen all the science channel espisodes of surgeries, but this is me! I wonder if they will share the images? I don’t have the patience to watch videos, occasional photos would be neat! Don’t you think?
Alright, No beating around the bush. The club is in jeopardy. In August (if not sooner) the club needs a new President, Vice-President, Refreshment Chair, and possibly more. The club CAN NOT function without the President and Vice-President.
So, if you want the club to continue, volunteer now. The benefit of voluntering now as opposed to later is you can “follow” the outgoing leader. In a manner, you will be tutored.
If no one steps up by the final meeting in May, that is May 20th, then the club will cease.
After a 2 1/2 year hiatus, the blog is back! I don’t know what I’ll post…probably just my ramblings! So sit back, relax, and enjoy. Leave a comment if you wish.
A chance to show off your work! Click on http://www.beaverbrook.org . On October 2 & 3, the Beaver Brook Assoc in Hollis holds their Annual Fall Festival and Art Show. Entry forms and details are located on the web site. Please let the club know if you enter your photographs. We’d love to attend and support our fellow members.

It’s relatively easy to do your own matting and framing. In the long run, it is much more cost-effective to do your own. The initial investment will run about $150 for a mat cutter, metal straight-edge, mat knife, mounting adhesive, foam core, and mats. First lesson: only use acid-free, archival mats. Otherwise, your mats will yellow over time. The cut edges may become yellow (or orange) within a year. Stores like A.C. Moore and Michael’s seel a Logan mat cutter that’s pretty decent. The instructions that come with the mat cutter are about all you will need for basic matting. Some of us use 3M Positionable Mounting Adhesive (PMA) which comes in rolls and costs about $50 a roll. 3M PMA is essentially rubber cement on a roll… and it comes with instructions also.
If you don’t want to (or can’t) use a preset white balance in your camera, you can photograph a grey card to set the white balance on your camera, so that all subsequent images will be balanced the same. Alternatively, you can use the automatic setting on your camera. Very possible, no matter which way you do it, you may want to tweak the color temperature when you import your image into your photo software.
Generally, the higher the ISO you use, the grainier (and noisier) the image will be. The same holds true with shutter speed. A faster shutter speed will give you more grain/noise.
