For our first in-person activity of the year, we are going to photograph the Milky Way above the Laguna Meadows. This activity is ideal for both our members who do not go to Bodie State Park at night with our vice-chair Mark, as well as those who do go and wish to practice immediately before heading up there.
Just like every year in summer, we invite you to learn and Improve Your Skills in the Sierra Club Photo Section’s July 2020 meeting. This year we have Stephen Bay showing us how to make Cleaner Night & Astro Photos with Exposure Stacking and our president Alexander S. Kunz with an Introduction to Long Exposure Photography. Continue reading if you’re interested. This is an online meeting via Zoom and for members only. You can find the meeting date & time at the end of this invitation.
Since clouds botched our first attempt for night & Milky Way photography in June, we’re giving it another go at the end of August. Please join the club’s own Duane Bazzel and Mark Ochenduszko for a summer evening photographing the Milky Way at Cuyamaca Lake. Details below.
As usual, this is not a Sierra Club outing. You may join up, leave, participate at your will on the scheduled evening. Please continue reading for the details.
The weather forecast predicts mostly overcast skies for Saturday night so we postponed this activity. It has now been rescheduled to August 31st. Details to follow.
You are invited to the March 2019 meeting of the Sierra Club San Diego Chapter Photo Section, on Saturday, March 9th, 2019, at the Serra Mesa/Kearny Mesa Library Community Room, from 2 PM to 4 PM (complete details at the bottom of this article).
Our main presentation will feature accomplished nighttime photographer and long-time photo section member Brian Wright, with his presentation Moonlight Photography.
August has ended, and so has another one of our monthly photo quests. The theme in August was “Night is Calling” and in the gallery below you find our member’s submissions. Thanks to everyone who took part, we hope you had fan & enjoy seeing other’s photos.
Depending on where in San Diego you are, your days are either warm, hot, or torrid right now – but the nights are nice when temperatures drop, the skies are mostly clear, the coyotes are singing, the stars are out, and the Milky Way is beautifully visible in all of its glory in summer.
The August theme for our photo quest is Night is Calling – so let’s get out into the night!
