30 SECOND OVERVIEW
The Camera Club of Eagle meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month at Eagle City Hall (between the post office and public library). We start at 7 PM sharp and we love visitors. Come see what you're missing!
WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS:
We're a very active group. In addition to our regular bi-weekly meetings, we host 4 in-depth workshops per year, as well as frequent outings and photographic events. Check the calendar for what's on tap.
The club also has an affiliation with Boise Photo Walk, an online group that meets often for live photo opportunities in the Treasure Valley area and beyond. It's a great way to practice what you're learning through the club while meeting other local photographers. Join here: http://www.meetup.com/Boise-Photo-Walk/
Is it you or your lens?
If your photos are not quite as sharp as you think they should be; it may be because your lens needs to be calibrated (checked for front and back focus issues). The club is having a workshop on lens calibration this next year. Bring your camera and lens to the workshop. Sign up at the club meetings for your brand of camera.
TIPS & TRICKS:
Are your photos not as sharp as you think they should be? This can be caused by several reasons - poor focusing technique, camera shake, a dirty lens. But here's one you may not have thought of - your UV filter. A cheap $10 filter on a $1000 lens will soften and degrade your image far more than a $60 multicoated ground glass optical filter. And even better, shooting without a filter at all guarantees that your lens won't add any unwanted flaring or ghosting.
