February Meetings

Oak View Branch Library 3700 E. 3rd St. (corner of E. 3rd and Bahnson), 7:00pm

So, now that you have that GREAT shot, what do you do with it?

We all spend countless dollars and hours trying to get that one great photograph, and once we do, more times than not they end up getting lost on a memory card, hard drive or deep within the bowels of our smart phones. Tuesday night, Sandy Jorgenson, Nancy Tesdall and Marty DeWitt are going to give a presentation on different ways to bring those images to life and put them on display for all to see and enjoy. They will be exhibiting different printing media like canvas, metal and wood prints, different framing techniques, unique books, cards and stationery, and other creative gifts and keepsakes which will inspire you to share your awesome photos with others. They will have many examples of products available, lists of vendors and will even have some great door prizes to get some of you started. This should be fun and informative, so bring a friend along!

January Meetings

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Oak View Branch Library 3700 E. 3rd St. (corner of E. 3rd and Bahnson), 7:00pm

For the January 3rd SFCC Program, Kent Staubus will feature a presentation showcasing a number of earlier (pre-1910) Dakota photographers, including Soloman Butcher, F.Jay Haynes, G.F. Fox. His research has shown there was quite a cluster of photographers along 8th Street in the 1890s, including a woman photographer. His show will include many images and stereo views from the late 1800s, including shots of the Falls (before the city development), early Dakota Territory farming, towns and trains. He will illustrate some of the challenges faced by early photographers, and talk a bit about the different equipment used and the photographic materials produced. It should be an informative and enjoyable step back in time! Bring a friend for this unique presentation!

September Meetings

Dewey Gevik

 

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

Photo Walk at Dewey Gevik Conservation Area, 7:00pm

Due to a scheduling conflict at the library, we were unable to get a room for our meeting. So we will have a photo walk at the Dewey Gevik Conservation Area instead.

I’m guessing many folks have been there, but it is awesome for waterfowl and shorebirds, and if the clouds are right, will produce some incredible over-water sunsets and dramatic lighting.

Folks can even make use of the neat observation blinds and trails.

Directions – drive west on 12th Street to the Wall Lake Oil corner (4-way stop) – proceed one mile west to next gravel road and turn south for one-half mile to parking lot on west side of road (by slough). We will meet at the parking lot at 7:00pm. Hope to see everyone there!

Tuesday, September 13, 2016 (Note: this meeting is on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, rather than the 3rd Tuesday)

Sioux Empire Fair

 

Photo Walk at the Sioux Empire Fair, 7:00pm

Join the Sioux Falls Camera Club on a photo walk at the Sioux Empire Fair! Meet us there on Tuesday, August 9, at 7:00 p.m. just inside the main (east) entrance in the Bridlewood Barn. (Please note that this is on the second Tuesday of the month rather than our normal first Tuesday meeting day.) We will spend some time photographing the 4-H animals, exhibits, food stands and carnival games (and anything else that captures your attention) while waiting for the sun to set so we can try some long exposure photography of the carnival rides. Make sure to bring your tripod, and a remote shutter release if you have one. It should be a fun evening! Hope to see everyone there!

July Meetings

Photo Walk at the Mary Jo Wegner Arboretum, 7:00pm

Join the Sioux Falls Camera Club on an evening excursion to the Mary Jo Wegner Arboretum on Tuesday, July 5th at 7:00 p.m. The Arboretum is located east of Sioux Falls on Highway 42 (East 10th Street) and just a bit east of Willow Run Golf Course and Arrowhead Park. We will meet in the parking lot in front of the education center. Wear comfortable sturdy shoes. There is a mix of hard-surfaced and gravel paths.

The Arboretum showcases the natural and historical significance of the old east Sioux Falls quartzite quarries, a prominent Sioux Falls settlement in the late 1880s. The park has done an awesome job of establishing walking paths, landscape plantings and historical displays. There are many examples of trees, shrubs, flowers and grasses, many with identifying labels. Exhibit panels bring to life the history of the old quarries and life in the early years of Sioux Falls. 

Photographic opportunities abound as you walk around the Formal Gardens. Many varieties of lilies and wildflowers are currently blooming. Birds are plentiful. And you may even see a deer of two wandering out for a snack in the adjacent fields. This area is also very popular with portrait photographers, for it’s variety of settings and shimmering light weaving through the forest canopy.

As the sun drops behind the trees, you may want to head west to Arrowhead Park to catch the last rays of light over the prairie grasses.

It should be a fun trek, so bring a friend, bring your gear, and we’ll see you there!
