OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWednesday April 29th is the last meeting for the month so the program must be SHOWCASE!  Yes, it is.  This month’s challenge is ‘Bikes’.  Let’s see how creative you can be with that.  Submit your images by Monday midnight April 26. Earlier is nicer. Remember your name goes first followed by the title. Details of sizing and naming can be found under the Showcase tab. See you Wednesday.

How does that image look in black & white? Members are encouraged to bring in 2 prints (in black & white) for a round-table critique session.  Please, minimum print size is 4″x6″. These could be images taken last week or years ago. There’s something about good B&W that allows you to “see” the essence of the light, composition, and exposure. These club critiques always prove to make an interesting evening.

George Wycherley will present an evening dialogue on Travel Photography – The British Isles. An exploration into travel photography vs snapshot photography.

 Last year George travelled on an extended photo tour through the British Isles. Images from this tour will be featured at this presentation.
“I’d like to use my photos to engage our club membership into defining the difference between being able to prepare for a photo-shoot vs the need to take the best you can out of less that desirable conditions as one travels from place to place on a Travel Tour.”

Frank Dwyer will start the evening with a presentation he calls “Getting Ready to Print”. He will touch on many aspects, including how viewing an image on a projection screen differs from a print destined to hang on a wall.

For the second part of the evening Cassandra Wilkinson will present “Printing Outside the Box”, a showcase of the various media available from the London Drugs photo lab. Lots of new products to choose from!
