Don Komarechka: Beyond the Camera – Creating an Image Before Shooting It

The art of photography is more than just pointing your camera at something beautiful and pressing the shutter button. Learning to explore a scene before taking the camera out of the bag is incredibly valuable, and the process always results in better photographs. Taking the concept farther, photographic inventiveness allows you to create art that truly represents your creative vision. Photography has always been a mesh of art and science. The deeper that mesh is woven, the more magical the results become. While the camera is a component of that mesh, the photographer is the most important ingredient.

Geared for beginner to low intermediate photographers.

Fall Colours at Mono Cliffs Provincial Park

  1.   Outing

The seasons have changed and this year's Fall colours outing we're headed back to Mono Cliffs Provincial Park northeast of Orangeville along the Bruce Trail.

We have a bit of everything for those who have never been, cliffs, great views, lakes, and a good hike on varied terrain. Portions of the trail while not difficult, do require your attention. For those with mobility issues, this won't be your outing.

The game plan
Arrive at Mono Cliffs Provincial Park at the 2nd Line Road East Entrance at 9:30 AM, you park on the side of the road. The morning portion of the hike we will cover roughly 5.8 km and break at Mono Cliffs Inn for lunch. The afternoon portion of the hike is about 3km and we loop back to our cars.

How to get there: Highway 410 to Highway 10, go north past Orangeville to Dufferin (Mono Centre) Road #8, turn east and follow that to Mono Centre. From there take 2nd Line East north to the end and find parking on the side of the road. Travel time from Oakville by car will be just over an hour.

What to Take With You:

This is a hike, so bare minimum is running shoes however hiking boots or shoes are highly recommended. We will be covering about 8 km in total so it's wise to travel with a camera backpack if you have one or travel light with a shoulder bag. I would also bring a polarizing filter to make the colours pop.

There is a sign up sheet at the October 3rd Meeting as we need to make a reservation at Mono Cliffs Inn so we can space for us as it is one of their busy seasons.

Meet up Location: In the York St. Concourse by the future Uncle Testsu Cheese Cake location in Toronto Union Station, 10:45 am. From there we move west along Bremner Boulevard to the Toronto Train Museum, from there we double back to York St. and go south to Queen’s Quay and make are way west towards Bathurst. We will break for lunch at the Amsterdam Ale House if seating is available failing that we’ll find another establishment.

After lunch we continue west to Bathurst head north to Bremner/Fort York Boulevard and head east to Dan Leckie Way, then we head north to the pedestrian bridge crossing the train tracks to Front St. From there we head east to draper St. and then head north to Wellington on this hidden gem. We head west to and then north on Portland to King St. We have plenty of establishments to stop at for an early dinner depending on our progress. Afterwards we can continue shooting if we want or head back to Union Station.

What do you need?

A decent pair of comfortable shoes, there will be a lot of walking involved and we could easily cover 8+km over the course of the day.

Sunscreen, if it’s sunny this is a wise thing to bring with you.

Bring your camera with normal to wide lenses. leave the 200mm telephotos behind. This is a “travel light” outing.

A Presto card or $3.25 cash fare for the TTC if you need to bail due to other commitments over the course of the walk. Streetcars are equipped with Presto Card readers (tap once), the Spadina Street car loops to Union Station and the 504 and 514 King street cars will take you downtown.

British Car Day 2015 is an annual event hosted by the Toronto Triumph Club,
on the third Sunday of September. Since its inaugural event in 1984, it has
grown in leaps and bounds, & now draws over 1,000 British cars and 8,000
spectators. The event is the largest, one-day, all-British car event in North
America, with visitors from throughout the northeast United States, the
Maritime provinces, Quebec, and Manitoba. We have even had visitors from

Meet up Time: 1:45 PM
Where: Union Station York St. Concourse, Toronto in the waiting area by the stairs for track 12/13.

Since members are coming from Burlington, Bronte, Oakville and Mississauga better to hop the GO train that will get you to Union Station for 1:45. GO schedules are here:
http://www.gotransit.com/timetables/en/schedules/full_schedules.aspx

Adult fares will vary depending where you board the train.

Once we meet up in downtown Toronto, we leave Union Station walking up York St. to Wellington, go east on Wellington to Bay St. and take Bay to Queen St.

From there we walk west on Queen St. walking past Nathan Philips Square and cutting through the Law Society of Upper Canada’s grounds to University, from there we go North to Dundas and then west on Dundas to McCaul, we then go north then west a bit by walking along Baldwin then north on Henry St. then across to Beverly St. (which runs into St. George) From there we turn north again to College and then east to King’s College Circle to the St. George Campus of University of Toronto and we go north, past University College and the residences. Then we go west along Harbord St. to St. George, we go north again past Robarts Library (the Bunker) and cut over to Huron St., we go North on Huron to the BP Nicholson Lane and we then go south back Huron past Coach House Press. We then go back east to St. George and walk North to Bloor St. and walk East along Bloor to Avenue Rd. We go North one block to Prince Arthur and west until we reach our destination: The Duke of York Pub.

For those who might find the walk strenuous, you have the option of hopping on the TTC we are in close proximity of the Yonge/ University Subway Line and the Spadina LRT Line. Note the closest subway station to the Duke of York is at St. George.

What do you need:

Comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking involved. Money for the subway/LRT in Toronto, cash fare is $3. Note while in early September it still feels like Summer during the day, it can cool down at night, dress accordingly.
In terms of camera gear, lean towards packing light and reasonably inconspicuous, restrict yourself to normal to wide angle lenses.
