Upcoming Naples Camera Club Outings and Events

Marco Island Sunset

Thursday, May 19, 7:15

Our next outing is Thursday Night at Marco Island . The location is near South beach. Parking may be available at the Sunset grille. Once in the lot, it is a short walk to the beach.

The jetties are on the left side of the restaurant a few hundred yards to the left. This is a new location, and Dave will check it out in the next week or so.

We will meet on the beach at 7:15 PM. Golden hour starts at 7:37 with sunset at 8:10. Beach sunsets are a great place to shoot landscapes, HDR and long exposures to smooth the waves.  Dave will bring a 16-35 Wide angle and a 24-70 lens. A ND filter is needed to obtain the long exposures a 10 stop, 4 stop or Variable ND filters works well. Exposure times of 2-10 seconds provides nice results.

Let Dave know if you are coming. He will use this information to keep you up to date if conditions change. Respond to the email chain he sent out. If you did not get the e-mail, please e-mail him directly.

Dave's email address is dmcfarlane22199@gmail.com and cell is 701-740-4000.

Also, please let him know if your plans change and you can’t make it.

Photo outings are the best way to meet and enjoy the company of people who have the same passion for photography that we share. For those so inclined, we typically will stop for refreshments and a bite to eat before or after the event.

After the event, send Denis Gaudreault 4-6 of your best photos to gaud04@hotmail.com. He will prepare a slide show of all the phots submitted and we will show this at an NCC meeting. Hope to see you there.

Pine Island Summer Fish Shack

Saturday, June 11, 4:30

The Pine Island Summer fish shack outing will take place on Saturday June 11 form 4:30PM to 8:30 PM. We had to pick this day before our Captain goes in for hip replacement surgery and work on the Marina shuts it down.  We will have another Fish Shack trip in November for all those who have headed north or are unable to attend.

The trip cost is $125 per person and includes the tip. Please send a check made out to Dave McFarlane to reserve your check. It will be refundable up to June 4, 2022. Mail it to:

                   Dave McFarlane

                   16209 Coventry Crest

                   Fort Myers, FL  33908

We can carpool from Fort Myers to the Pine Island Commercial Marina at 6001 Maria Dr, St James City 33956. Plan on meeting at the far Northwest corner of the Walmart parking lot at the corner of Route 41-Tamiami Trail and Six Mile Cypress.  The address is: 14821 6 Mile Cypress Parkway, Fort Myers 33912.  We will leave at 3:15 PM, it will take about 60 minutes to get to the marina.

There is a $10 fee per car for parking. I have tentatively reserved two boats so the first 12 people that get their checks to me will be on the list. We will also try to get off the boat on Cayo Costa Island to photograph the driftwood.

The fish shacks are color iconic structures in the water that provide a great foreground against a summer sky and sunset. We did this a few years ago and several ribbon winning photos were taken.

Let Dave know you are coming but more importantly. Send him your check to ensure the reservation.
