Auto Ranch- Saturday, September 20th - 8:00 AM

The next DCC field trip will be Saturday, September 20th to the CTC Auto Ranch at 3077 Memory Ln., Denton, Tx. It is a huge auto salvage yard with hundreds of pre-1980's vintage cars. They will open early for us at 8:am. The entry fee is $15, payable as you go in. This type of photography is all about textures, color and forms, so bring your tripods and wide-angel zooms. For more information go to www.ctcautoranch.com. C.T.C. Auto Ranch is located just 4 miles north of Denton, Texas, on the west side of Interstate 35. Going north on I-35, exit at the 474 mile marker (Cowling Rd) stay on the service road until you will come to some railroad tracks, at this point the road loops under freeway. CTC is on the right, just past the dragstrip. We have reservations for lunch at the Horny Toad Cafe and Bar at 11:30am. The food is Texas-eclectic and not bad at all. It's located just a couple of miles south of the Auto Ranch in the Stonehill Shopping Center on the east side of I-35. To get there from CTC, use exit 471 from southbound I-35; go on through the stop light at Hwy 77; Exit the service road at Hwy 288; loop around and crossover I-35; take the first right into Stonehill Center; the Horny Toad Cafe is on the right. Call me if you have and questions. Gary Kelly 972-824-4106

The Study Group program is part of the pre-meeting training program starting at 6:30 prior to the second meeting each month. We will divide members into small groups led by master photographers to discuss prints and projected images brought in by members. This is a great way to get feedback on images one is considering for the monthly competitions or to fine tune that one great image.  Groups may also be formed to discuss other topics of interest – just let us know what you are interested in.

Here is how the study groups work:

  • Session will start promptly at 6:30.
  • Bring a print or processed digital image file on a thumb drive.
  • The processed file does not need to be resized – TIFF, PSD, or jpeg is fine. You might also consider bringing the original RAW file as well.
  • Prints may be any size in color or monochrome and do not need to be mounted or matted.  If you like, you can also bring the digital file of your print.
  • As people arrive, they will be assigned to a group of four or five with a master photographer.
  • The group members will give and receive feedback on their images until 7:15.
  • If you did not bring an image, you are encouraged to sit in on a group to either observe or participate.

Remember that this is about learning from each other in a friendly environment. Please assume that those giving input have a positive intent.
