CCP Photography Club:Hi there!
There's a meeting at 4 at school on monday.
How's about bringing photos to view and share with y'all?
Also, consider bringing interesting equipment to display & share with other members. It's fun!
Those attending really miss the bigger crowds we used to have.
See you Monday.... bring Photos, equipment, bring a friend!
Hope to see you there!
HERE's a copy of a message sent by new member, Bill McDowell. Thanks, BILL!!!!!
It was fun to play with a radioactive russian lens!
Here are the pics, as promised. Thanks for a great afternoon of lively discussion. I can't wait for next week!
I just did a little reading in to that lens. It seems the "HELIOS 44-2" was the most popular revision and is the most desirable, today. This is not the same as the 44M-2.
There are two on ebay for $25-$30, at the moment.
There is also a flickr group dedicated to it
Also, here is the Canon EOS - M42 plate
Soon to be the Club's Counsel.... we hope!!!
Club Advisor, MJJoniec & Club President (on President's day!), didn't chop the cherry tree, EARL WEEKS!!!
Bill McDowell "

Should I be thinking about video?
Thursday, March 25, 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.
Bonnell Small Auditorium
1700 Spring Garden Street
Philadelphia, PA 19130
Community College of Philadelphia
Gail Mooney will discuss the increased demand for video and how to identify potential opportunities for you. What tools do you need? How do you change your thinking from still to motion? What are the business models for video production?
Gail Mooney, along with her partner Thomas Kelly, run Kelly/Mooney Productions, a visual communications company in New Jersey. Gail has 30 years of experience in still photography, shooting for international magazines, major corporations and advertising agencies. Gail started shooting 35mm motion footage for stock in 1996, and in 1999 started producing and shooting video projects. Since then, her company has become fully integrated with multimedia. She has also produced two short documentaries: The Delta Blues Musicians and Through the Hearts and Hands of Children about the New Jersey Youth Symphony. She is currently working on a multimedia documentary about two diverse high school groups retracing the Civil Rights Freedom Ride of the 1960's. Gail sees many opportunities for still shooters to expand into video and multimedia, and she feels that this is just the beginning of how technology will transform how we, as visual communicators, will deliver our message in the future.
FYI...... free to CCP Students!
