Station 1 : Light Painting : Led by Rafal Kiermacz

Station 2 : Speedlight / Natural Light Photography : Led by Kevin Chan

Weather permitting this session may take our members outdoors. Learn about portrait photography outdoors lit with natural light and speedlights. The focus will be working with the ambient light and outdoor locations to make interesting portraits. If the weather is poor, we will be working with some natural indoor light and learning how to adapt our lights in different situations. We will be working with multiple lights, soft boxes, grids, and gels.

The OCC will be visiting the Vivian Maier: Street Photographer Exhibit at the Art Gallery of Hamilton on Sunday, November 4th starting at 12pm.

Dubbed the “secret nanny-photographer” by the media, Vivian Maier (1926-2009) always had a Rolleiflex camera around her neck, yet secreted away the photographs.

In 2007 thousands of her images were discovered when her storage locker was auctioned off. Mostly from the 1950-60’s, her work centered around street photography throughout New York & Chicago, and travel photography the likes of Italy & Egypt.

We'd love to have you join us to view this exhibit with some of your fellow photographers!

From a very young age, Arni has had great admiration and respect for the great outdoors.   Since his retirement a few years ago, he has been able to spend the time to improve his photographic skills in the field and in the digital darkroom.  As an award winning wildlife photographer, naturalist and conservationist, he is proud to have had his images published in conservation-themed, international journals including the prestigious Birdlife Australia, Wild Seed Project in Maine, National Audubon Society and Canadian Geographic.


His goal is to tell Nature's story by capturing unique one-of-a-kind images that will resonate with the viewer, stir the soul, invoke an emotion or perhaps stimulate a memory.  The final compositions capture a fleeting moment, one that portrays the beauty, simplicity and fragility of nature.”

Dr. Ron Goodlin is known as a conservation-wildlife photographer from Thornhill Ontario Canada. 

After slowing down his career as a Cosmetic Dentist, he has spent much of his time travelling the world to photograph wildlife that is in danger of extinct from the perils of mankind.

“My photographic vision is to create natural but artistic images that will be engaging, and appeal to the general public,  thus helping to bring the story of these endangered animals and perils to our natural landscape, to the forefront, creating awareness the effects of climate change, pollution, urban sprawl poaching and industrialization.”

Ron hopes to institute a positive change to our world through his photography.

Leif’s passion and inspiration for photography is life itself. Being at a happy and satisfied point in his life, he sees things around me more clearly, and often differently, than he would without a camera up to his eye. Traveling and photography has given him the opportunity to see, appreciate and capture many beautiful places and wonderful moments in life around the world and enjoy several life-changing experiences. The entire process, from image capture through digital processing to printing and preparing his images for exhibit, is fascinating, relaxing and fulfilling.

Nine Locations -Three Photographers - One India,

Bernie Cook, Juan Gil Niehorster and Gary van Eijk take you on a journey through Northern India as it is seen through, not one, but Three lenses.

As we take you on our adventure through the Himalayas and the Kashmir region of Northern India, you will see the people and places of India’s northern most Nubra valley, located near the Pakistan-India border, then to Pangong Lake on the border of China, to the Monasteries of Ladakh and Leh, into the green valleys of Manali, the Buddhist surroundings of Dharmshala, a journey within the holiest of Sikh places, the Golden Temple of Amritsar - the abode of God and finally on a spice quest into markets of Old Delhi.

Join us and learn as we review the best way to travel into remote India through our experiences, our equipment and our individual photography styles and through every unexpected turn that remote India travel took us….after all “nothing can prepare you for India" - but we will try!

Join the OCC as we welcome Club and Board member Jared Fein and his presentation on photomicroscopy.

There is so much in our immediate world that our eyes cannot see, but which can be revealed  and captured through photomicroscopy.  

By mounting a camera on a microscope, this amazing unseen world can provide countless opportunities to capture stunning images of things we mortals could otherwise not imagine.  

Tonight’s presentation will provide an introduction and overview of this area of photography, in which Jared will share a number of his images ranging from living microorganisms to other interesting everyday objects, then will dazzle you all with some of the best award winning photomicrographs from Nikon’s annual Small World photography competition.

Guests are always welcome - guest fee is $10
