Carling Heights Community Centre, 656 Elizabeth St., London
Peter Baumgarten: The Wonders of the Night Sky-A Journey of Photographic Discovery (7:30 PM EDT)
The night sky holds fascination for many people. Join Peter Baumgarten, professional photographer and Olympus Visionary as he discusses how he became an 'accidental astrophotographer' and how his passion for photographing the night sky has grown. A number of tips and techniques will be shared that will help improve your own night sky images. Also in attendance will be Kathy Principato from Olympus, who will have equipment for you to touch and try during the break. Check Peter Baumgarten's website! There will be a $20.00 admission fee for all non members
Randy VanDerStarren: Take Your Seat - Global Initiative (7:30 PM EDT)
We only get one planet. We only get one life. Take Your Seat challenges you to take care of both. The fragile beauty of nature reminds us that we have a responsibility to preserve what we admire. The insertion of a simple chair into a scene makes a compelling statement: Mother Earth, and our lives, cannot be taken for granted. For the past two years, Randy and his family happily lugged their chair over hills and valleys to visit the temples and beaches of nine countries. His presentation is called Take Your Seat – Global Initiatives. Check Randy VanDerStarren's website: There will be a $20.00 admission fee for all non members

Deadline for competition entries
SIG Night (7:30 PM EDT)
This Special Interest Group (SIG) night will be dedicated to using off-camera flashes to light still life objects. After introducing the topic, Brock and Sherri Fenton will have two stations set up, equipped with flashes, objects and backdrops. One station will have larger objects, so you don't need a special lens to photograph them. The second station will be dedicated to macro objects. For macro, you can either bring your own macro lens or extension tubes, or, if you're a Nikon shooter, borrow one of two lenses from Brock and Sherri. Their flashes will be set on 'slave' mode, meaning they will be triggered by the flash on your camera (either built in flash or accessory speedlight). No need for radio triggers or patch cords! If you've never shot in Manual mode before, here's your chance to learn how it's done. All you need to bring is your camera, a macro lens or extension tubes (if you have them), a 'normal' lens (ie. kit lens), an accessory flash (if you have one) and, if possible, a tripod and cable release for your shutter.
