The Portneuf Valley Photographic Society is a group of people who are interested in and enjoy photography. We are a part of the Pocatello Art Center. Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings, and functions anytime!
Photo Club Meeting:
In our May meeting we discussed Focus Stacking. Gary Tatum taught us about it and how to make Photoshop do the merging of the images. He also had some fun pictures where he used the technique.
Our Summer Picnic is coming up. It is titled “Bubble and BBQ” this year. It will be Thursday night – June 21st 6:30pm It will be at the home of Gary and Barbara Tatum 505 McAdoo St, Blackfoot ID 83221. This is a potluck event so bring you favorite salad or dessert or another side.
The bubbles are a ton of fun for both photographer and kids, so bring your camera (and a long lens) and your kids or grand-kids.
Please bring a few “show and tell” images on a thumb drive. We want to share our photos with the specific topic of composition. Come ready to discuss your compositional choices for the images you bring. The show and tell happening has always been an educational (meaningful) experience.
About some of our past events
Several of the club members went to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point for a photo trip. They returned with some very nice photos along with stories of a fun time and more opportunities than they could take advantage of.
Our Judged Show was great. We had a lot of great photographs entered and some great judges. The show looked great hanging in the gallery.
Bryce Canyon Trip:
Our trip to Bryce Canyon was great. The Photog Adventures guys, Aaron and Brendon, spent some time with us. They took us on a hike to a great place with a single tree on the top edge of a cliff/hoodoo and a sunset. They also taught us about shooting start trails, very fun. We have a Flickr group where people are putting pictures from the trip. It is worth checking it out.
