A short letter from your president,
It was unfortunate that Karen Lentz of M&H Custom Framing was ill with that awful cold/flu that is going around. She called and could barely speak! Fortunately, our members were ready to present their published coffee table books. We were able to listen to each person and then we took to the tables with their displays.
It was wonderful to see images in print. The book presentation was excellent and generated a lot of excitement about book publishing. We had a good amount of information and samples at our fingertips. There's nothing like touching, viewing and feeling the quality of a well-executed book.
We are investigating the laptop requirements for the latest Lightroom program. Hopefully we will not need a new laptop. Marty Golin, our projectionist, said that it would be much easier to handle the Contest/Critiques and to find and view the images in Lightroom. It should give us the opportunity to demonstrate results when critiquing images and provide us with short lessons on post-processing images.
The next National Geographic Photographic Lesson is Composition 1-Seeing Well. The lesson will be in the Library and held on February 15th. We start the lesson at 6:25pm so that the 30 minute DVD lesson will be completed slightly before our 7:00pm regular meeting in the community room. (read more...)
