RCPC Members:
There is some confusion regarding the next club meeting. It was originally planned for today, but we did not do a very good job of advertising it.
So, after discussion with Sachin - we have decided to move the meeting to next Thursday, July 27 at 5:00 PM. It will be in the same location as normal, unless otherwise directed by Sachin.
Please make every effort to attend so we can discuss a number of topics.
Thank you,

Jim Jezek
RCPC VP

Been on this community for awhile. Unfortunately I don't shoot that often. But had a couple from a trip from Monument Valley, UT this spring that were my favorites. Star trail was 4 hours long from the balcony of the place we stayed at. Not the best composition, but it was convenient. Set the camera on 30 second continuous, set my alarm, went to sleep, woke up 4 hours later.

Preparing for the eclipse. Sun with sunspot. I used a solar filter with my tamron 150-600mm lens with a doubler on it. my setting were f/8, 1/125sec, iso100. The only editing was cropping, upping both constrast and clarity.

Hi. Over the last 24 hours Michael Huang and I set up a photo shoot with the International Juggling Association national convention here in CR this week. We are doing a private glow & fire juggling evening tomorrow (Friday 7/14 @ 8pm @ Studio Reserved) just for our local photography groups. NOT open to the public - so no telling your friends & neighbors! Michael offered Studio Reserved facility for a place for their glow & fire jugglers to play a little for a group of local photographers. I promised I’d have 20-30 photographers. I know its last minute but we think it is going to be super cool.

Bring your camera, trigger, tripod and red flashlight.

I do not have a limit on the # of photographers who can come, however I would like an RSVP so I know when I’ve hit what I promised. This is NOT opened to the public. comment below if you want to come. We just ask for a couple $ to help cover fuel cost.

One of the jugglers walking over is a world renowned fire artist & instructor named Kevin Axtell. Here is his website: http://www.kevinaxtell.com/

Please hashtag all social media photos with: ijafest2017

Attached is the invite I just sent to the jugglers

Wasn't able to make it downtown to try photographing the Freedom Festival fireworks, but the neighborhood did a pretty good job. This was an 8 second exposure @ f/11, 24mm, ISO 100. CC encouraged! I would like to have found something in the foreground to give it some scale, but it was a rush to get setup in about 5 min from getting on-site.

I took a walk along the back property line for the Whispering Oaks RV Camp in Story Iowa. The South Skunk River juts up to the edge of property. These are three HDR composites I did from my walk-about.
