Upcoming Programs You Do Not Want To Miss!Feb. 4 – Tabletop Wildlife: How Photographers Can Help Save SpeciesWe know that photographing wild animals and sharing their images can help protect them. At our first February meeting, we’ll learn more about this opportunity, and at our second meeting, we’ll do it for real – so plan to attend both meetings. On Feb. 4, we’ll see an inspiring a video clip about Joel Sartore, whose Photo Ark project is documenting endangered species before they disappear. Member Christine Pence will share her experience participating in a recent wildlife shoot staged by the Photographic Society of America. And President Dave Ficke, a former science teacher, will tell us what we’ll need to make the most of RCC’s first Tabletop Wildlife photo event on Feb. 18, presenting real creatures in a controlled environment, with studio-quality lighting and natural setups. Both programs start at 7 p.m., John Knox Hall, First Presbyterian Church.Feb. 18 – Tabletop Wildlife Photography Night – Members OnlyLearn how to photograph wild creatures in studio-style settings when Redlands Camera Club hosts its first Tabletop Wildlife event for members. We’ll hear first from Dr. Bill Hayes, professor of biology and director of the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation Studies at Loma Linda University, who frequently shares animals at schools to familiarize kids with wildlife. Bill and his team will employ light boxes and lighted stands to pose several species in critter-friendly configurations for photography. We’re expecting a tarantula, a Desert Hairy Scorpion, Bearded Dragon lizard, horned lizard, Ball Python, Green Tree Python, colorful parrot and possibly a Peregrine Falcon. You’ll need a tripod and a zoom lens (at least 200MM recommended). Members only, please, 7 p.m., Feb. 18, John Knox Hall, First Presbyterian Church.
