Capture Your Fish with a Camera!

Rooster Tails June 21st Breakfast Guest Speaker

Jordan Farmer, PhotoGraphyMyWay



Long after the details of your magnificent fish catch fades, the photograph you took will allow you to relive the excitement of the fight, the challenge of netting, and maybe even the fantastic diner that was made from it.  A quality image of that moment in time freezes the excitement and happiness that will allow you to relive the catch over and over again (besides proving proof of your fish story!).  While some people might argue that we have become more obsessed with taking selfie-pictures with our smart-phones rather than living in the moment, however just that one perfect photo will tell it all!  Make plans to attend the Rooster Tails Fishing Club’s June 21st breakfast meeting and learn the basics on how to use a camera to take better fishing photographs.  The Rooster Tails Fishing Club is proud to host special guest speaker, professional photographer, and photography instructor Jordan Farmer, owner of PhotoGraphyMyWay.  Jordan has taught thousands of people over ten years on how to use their cameras.  PhotoGraphyMyWay has locations in Roseville, Sacramento, Folsom, and Walnut Creek and is committed to offering practical hands-on classes focused on topics the average photographer would actually use.  They have no sponsorships or endorsed products to sell you.  Most classes are capped at eight people and offer continued support outside of class via Phone, Email or Facebook.  In addition, PhotographyMyWay has had a large community of students sharing ideas and images for years to come!     

They say a picture is worth a thousand words … a cliché for sure, but it’s a cliché for a reason. Once you have snapped that moment, it is captured forever. These days we frequently take photos on our smart phones for granted, but just think about that for a minute... Beyond fishing photos, how amazing is it that you could capture your grandchildren doing something wonderful (like catching their first fish!) so that moment will be seen and enjoyed by their children.  Learning how to use your camera to capture these special memories will be there to hold and share for forever.  Many of us opt to use a point-n-shoot cameras on the automatic-setting, probably without realizing that you missed many fantastic photo enhancements that you will hear about at Jordan’s presentation.  Many people who say that they’re not creative people. But once you know how to use your camera and ‘find the right light’, you will be amazed at the creative photos you are taking. Yes, some people have more of an eye for photography than others; some things just can’t be taught. But believe Jordan that ANYONE can learn how to take better or even great photos!

Unlike traditional Rooster Tail breakfast meetings with fishing tackle and techniques, we want to especially extend and invitation to member spouses/partners and family members to attend this event.  Doors to Auburn Elks Lodge open at 7:00 a.m.; a $15 buffet breakfast is served at 8:00 a.m.; with Jordan’s presentation at 9:00 a.m.  Reservations are not necessary, but we anticipate a large crowd and arrival early is recommended.  More information is available at www.roostertailsfishingclub.org or 530-887-0479.
