Show Off Option A – AV Format

SHOW OFF AV Formats, also known as digital slide shows, audio-visual shows or audio-visual presentations, are created by members of the Mississauga Camera Club and presented on most Thursday evening meetings after the Club announcements at the beginning of the evening. All members are welcome to create and submit a SHOW OFF to share their images with our Club. Submissions are to be given on a USB drive to SHOW OFF Leader, Jim Evans. Jim can be reached by email at if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.

Member Show Off AVFormat Presentations Available for Viewing

Those members submitting Show Off’s are invited to have their AV presentations accessible for viewing here on the club’s website. This would allow any club member who would like to see them again, an opportunity to do so. As well, this will provide members who were not present at the club meeting when they were shown a chance to see them for the first time.

Show Off creators will be asked if they wish to have their AV presentations accessible on the club website for on-line viewing by club members. For those who opt-in, the Show Off Leader will upload their videos to the UNLISTED category in a specially-created MCC YouTube account, and list the weblinks below. UNLISTED is a type of private category whereby only those people who know the link to the video can view it. An UNLISTED video will not appear in any of YouTube’s public spaces or in public search results.

NOTE: This will likely be the main platform for sharing our Show Off videos until meetings resume at the Senior Centre, since playing videos over Zoom lacks quality in terms of image sharpness, smooth transitions and steady sound. Posted videos on the club’s website are a much better option for sharing. There are many ways to deliver your AV file to Show Off Leader Jim Evans, both electronically or in person, if you prefer.

Here then are the weblinks to those Show Off’s from the 2019-20 membership year for which their creators have approved this on-line viewing.

Al Tilson Tribute and Photography by David and Karen Simmonds

Recently, members of the Mississauga Camera Club lost a good friend and passionate photographer to a recent illness. Al Tilson joined our club around the same time that Karen and I joined-1985 or there abouts.  Over the years, Al and his wife, Ann, attended many club outings. Al also entered all of the club competitions in which he won numerous awards. A small sample of Al’s award winners are in the latter half of this video.  Al was very much a kind and thoughtful gentleman.  He will be missed by his many friends both inside and outside the Mississauga Camera Club.

Wildlife of the Credit Flats by Michael Lemiski

The Credit River, just upstream from the harbour at Port Credit, is a joy for naturalists, photographers and recreational paddlers. In this video Michael Lemiski shares some of the wildlife photographs he has taken over the last year on the Credit River in Mississauga, Ontario from his pedal kayak.  Most people have no idea that this natural world exists in the heart of south Mississauga, nor that this variety of wildlife can be found there.  The music for the video is composed and performed by Michael, with drone videography provided by Jim Evans.

Music of the Night by Cecil Lindsay

This Show Off by Cecil features extraordinarily beautiful light-painting images made with model Rosa Wang at dramatic locations around the GTA.   For those who may not be aware, light painting is a photography technique that uses a moving light source (e.g. flashlight, sparkler) to add light to a subject while taking a long-exposure photograph. A scene or object can be brought to life by painting with a beam of light.  The accompaniment of Andrew Lloyd Webbers Phantom of the Opera hit ‘The Music of the Night’ is icing on the cake. Enjoy !!

Exploring Lakeside Parks by Jim Evans

The images for this video were captured over the past few months, in the many lakeside parks between Toronto and Burlington.   It’s amazing really, the natural world that exists on our urban doorsteps.  Turn one way and you know that you’re in the city … turn the other and you could be a hundred miles away in the country.

Quarantine Chronicles : Episode One by Jim Evans

These images were captured in and around Pt Credit during the early days of COVID 19 lockdown.   You will see people out enjoying the spring sunshine and walking-paths, while keeping their distance.  The sky is like we haven’t seen it in many years, with not a contrail in sight … and traffic noise is virtually non-existent.  Almost serene.  The lyrics of the song, by Icelandic group Sigur Rós, relate to a moment in time when finding shelter from the storm.
