2019/2020 Monthly Activities

Monthly activities include a photo feedback session, a main meeting, workshop sessions, field trips, Lightroom/Photoshop Special Interest Group (SIG), and Beginner Post Processing SIG meetings.  

 

The Main Meetings will have several shorter presentations with something for everyone, beginner to advanced.  The basic format of the meetings will be:  General Information, Updates, Treasurer's Report; Tip of the Month / Member Questions Answered; Photo Share; 30 minute education Topic; a 15 minute teaser for the next workshop; discussion of next month's photo theme; and display of last month's photo submissions.  The Member Questions will be selected from those submitted through the Submit Questions button above.  The Photo Share will be a club member sharing several of their photos and what they did to get the shot, covering topics such as planning, composition, camera settings, etc.

 

The field trips of photo shoots range from one- to multi-day shoots. These are a great way to get out and photograph sights near and far together with your fellow club members.  Please make sure to register with the event organizers.   Below is a summary of the activities, with details on the following pages.
