APLCC Newsletter -- April 13 Reptilia Walkabout & April 25th Meeting

Ronen Grunberg's picture


We will go on a walkabout this weekend, but not to Reptilia (because only seven people registered and not the 10 minimum required).  Instead, we'll head to Sharon Temple (18974 Leslie Street in Sharon).  Admission is $5 and we can stay as long as we like.  (For info about the Sharon Temple, go to www.sharontemple.ca).  If you plan to come, please sign up here.  You will find details about where and when we'll meet on the signup page.

If you signed up for the Reptilia walkabout but don't care to participate in the Sharon walkabout, please go to the Sharon Temple signup page and remove your name from the list by clicking on the "cancel signup" link.  Remember that you must be logged in to cancel.


The monthly challenge for April's meeting is "Something New" or "Something Old," or, if you're really creative, "something New and Old" in the same photograph.  The monthly challenge gallery is ready for your April images so upload them as soon as you can.  Because we're a bit behind with the monthly challenge critiques, we will critique the March challenge (Repetition/Symmetry) as well as the April challenge at this meeting.


Brief presentation from:

  • Gerry Conetta: Using gradient filter in camera raw.
  • Rafael Payen: Correct colour cast in old photos.


Rick Armstrong and Angela Durante Dukat will present their 12 shots (5-10 minutes each).  As explained at the March meeting, the 12-Shot Challenge involves:

  • Thinking before you shoot.
  • Pretending you only have 12 shots (as in film).
  • Picking any item or items and taking 12 interesting shots in a row (with no deletions).
  • Telling some sort of a story with the shots.


We'll discuss the photographs of Andre Kertesz.  Please take the time to find out something about this photographer so we can have a lively discussion.


Looking forward to seeing you all on April 25th.
