The Grande Prairie Photo Club – PhotoCram II

Samantha and I just got back from a wonderful weekend at the Grande Prairie Photo Club where we presented PhotoCram II, an intensive 3-day workshop designed to help photographers build skills for creating images with personal vision. This is the second year we’ve been invited to the Grande Prairie Photo Club and like last year we were met with the most well organized and fun group of photographers ever. This crew had us in stitches! And the food was fantastic.

We want to thank everyone at the club for great time. Below is a photo from the Sunday night field session where we were lucky to get a full moon hanging in a glowing sky over Grande Prairie. Also below are three images of Samantha taken from our assignment on lens choice where she was photographed with a normal, wide angle, and telephoto focal length lens.

If you missed this PhotoCram event and want to take part in an intensive weekend of photographic learning you can join us at the Edson Camera Club in Edson, Alberta, September 30 – October 2, 2011 where we are presenting PhotoCram I.

  1. thanks for a fantastic informative weekend, was definitely fun and worthwhile!! I learned lots….posted a few of my faves to my blog (since I somehow missed the photo contest deadline over the weekend 😦 )

  2. LOL! Darwin, I think you need to send that Sigma 8-16mm to Gentec for adjustment, there is some pretty severe distortion in shot #3…

  3. Bruce Smith Says:

    I had no idea that a wide-angle lens caused that much distortion. Wow. Fortunately, the other two lenses showed Samantha nicely.

  4. Haha, that one photo is hilarious! Thanks for the laugh. 🙂

  5. Distortion? What distortion? I was just thinking hard!
