CERN Accelerating science

Luigi Gallerani - Disorientation... at Forum Meyrin

Few months ago, one of our PhotoClub Member Luisa, organized a Photo Club CERN Outing at Forum Meyrin. The idea was simple... just meet there at around 1800 and try to make some photos in a place... where there are no interesting subjcet for a photographer....

26 March - 1830 - Stefan Russenschuck: Full-frame DSLR versus Medium Format

On Mar 26th, at 18:30, Stephan Russenschuck will present:"Comparing apples and oranges? Full-frame DSLR versus Medium Format: Nikon D800E and the Mamiya/Leaf Credo 60 combo."

Luigi will then make 10 minutes of .... Basic Lenses for photography, giving you an introduction on which kind of picture you can get with the a single piece of glass.

You are all welcome to come and join this meeting.

 

Photo Club CERN Logo

Apparently our Logo from 1959 was not compliant with CERN regulations as it had inside the CERN logo. This logo has been in use for decades, and what you see below, is the scan of the original stamp that has been used in all official document and on the verso of all pictures shown by photoclub to competions like photoswiss. We keep this scan here for hystorical information. We have now a temporary logo, and we are waiting for a new logo designer.

 Stephan Russenschuck has recently opened his website http://srussenschuck.com/

Those who had the opportunity to meet Stephan, and follow one of his presentations at Photo Club CERN know what we are talking about: true Fine Art Photography.

In one of his presentations, he gave a definition of an outstanding photo.  I think that this was one of the best practical definitions of photography I ever heard: "A photo is outstanding when there are people willing to spend time and money for quality printing and framing for display in a prominent place of their home for the next 10 years."
