Message from the President

For those of you who joined our Zoom club meeting last week, I hope you found it interesting and inspiring!  If you weren’t able to join the call, you can watch a video of the meeting.  The link to the recording is included in the Club News email. (If you did not receive the email, please fill out the form on the Join page.)

Here is an outline of the topics we covered with the cue times:

During the meeting, several members indicated that they would be interested in learning more about focus stacking, so we are working on it — More on that soon! 

June Meeting

We will have our June meeting by Zoom again, so please put it on your calendar.  It will be at 7:00pm on Thursday, June 11th.  The details of the meeting will be sent to you a few days before the meeting.  Our topic for the June meeting will be “Food Photography”.  With summertime here, there is an abundance of beautiful, fresh food just waiting for your artistic eye to make our mouths water!

Monthly Theme

The theme for the June submissions gives you a chance to practice and show off your best photo for one of the three rules of composition we covered:  Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, and Reflections.  Your photo will need to be submitted by Saturday, June 6th in order to be included in the June 11 critique.  See the announcement.

Have a healthy and happy Memorial Day holiday!
