Join the Wasatch Camera Club this Friday evening for a study of light and shadow on the human form. The owner of Infusion Yoga & Pilates Studio in Bountiful has graciously opened her studio to give us the opportunity to shoot with 3 or 4 Yogis. Depending on the number of lights we want on each model we'll have from 2 - 4 light setups and we'll rotate between photographers giving everyone ample opportunity to shoot.
The studio has 3 separate rooms that we can use, and my hope is to arrange each area for different effects. The studio walls are plain off white, but I'll also have a black backdrop setup for effects like this sample image.
I'm asking the Yogis to wear their most comfortable and flattering outfits, but don't hesitate to bring some simple but interesting props as well. I'll be bringing a long leather trench, hat, scarves, umbrella . . you get the idea. Mix it up if you like, but don't make it too complicated.
As in past shoots with unpaid models we ask that all the participating photographers share their best images with each of the Yogis as a show of appreciation for their time and effort. I'll be setting up a folder at our WCC Box site where images can be uploaded. Hope to see you there!

The club enjoyed an exceptional response to the call for entries for the Language of Light exhibit. Close to 500 images were submitted across the six categories and without doubt these photographs are clear evidence that our club members are very talented.
The committee of six judges independently reviewed all the submissions and scored each. Exhibits Director Jeff Clay then tallied the scores and filled each library space with the top selections. As you will note, the different venues accommodate different numbers of images.
To see if your image(s) were chosen, you can see a list here.
If your image was selected you can now begin the framing process and we have provided a number of suppliers and options on how to proceed here. Three framing establishments are offering nice discounts for Wasatch Camera Club members and Language of Light entries in particular. Don’t forget to ask for your discount on this project.
The Language of Light exhibit is on track to be a huge success and we hope you share in the pride of being a member of such a highly skilled group of photographers.

We can truly say, and back by popular demand, the club is very pleased to welcome Jeffery Allred who was enthusiastically applauded for his presentation two years ago. This time Jeffery will show some of his documentary travel and photo essay work while including some suggestions on composition and shooting techniques.
Jeffrey Allred has spent 27 years as a photojournalist for the The New York Times, USA Today, Associated Press, Getty Images, Deseret News and the Salt Lake Tribune. Some of his recent stories of note include covering the 2013 Final Four basketball tournament, the Haiti earthquake in 2010, the 2009 Sugar Bowl, a Mexican immigration series in 2008, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002. The Haiti earthquake coverage garnered him a Pulitzer Prize nomination.
From now through the end of October the Wasatch Camera Club Exhibits Committee will be accepting submissions for our Salt Lake Library system-wide (main library plus 5 branches) photographic exhibit titled The Language of Light.
You must be a member of the club and all details plus the submissions' links may be accessed from this Language of Light page.

Join us the last Saturday of the month for a trip into upper Ogden valley for some Fall time shooting. MSN.com rated the upper Ogden Valley one of the 10 most Scenic areas for fall colors. The centerpiece of the Valley is Pineview Reservoir, with mountain peaks rising more than 9,700 feet, encircling a pastoral setting. The valley to the east of Snowbasin resort is a lovely combination of grassy knoll, Scrub Oak, and Mtn. Maple. We will start with a sunrise shoot of the peaks at Snowbasin and try to catch that first light of the day hitting them. Then we'll spend the rest of the morning shooting different areas in the valley where we can find the best color.
Meet at the Greenery Restaurant at the mouth of Ogden canyon at 6:00AM and we can car pool from there. There is a ski bus parking lot right next to the restaurant we can use, located here: http://goo.gl/maps/DN8Qt Sunrise is at 7:20, this will give us plenty of time to get to and scout for a desirable shooting location.
Or, if you're not quite as early, meet us on a pullout on Trappers Loop Rd. (rte 167) approximately 1.5 miles south of Snowbasin Rd. (rte 226) here: http://goo.gl/maps/CDCFB
Saturday, September 28th, 6:00 AM at The Greenery Restaurant.
