Meeting Tonight, Thursday 3/21

Just a quick reminder that our next meeting is this evening, Thursday, March 21st at 7 pm in the Fontenelle Forest Nature Center, as per usual.

Due to the recent flooding, our president, Jay Davis, has been called back to duty as a building inspector and will not be able to attend the meeting. But members can still bring in images and we can have a group discussion/critique session.

Also, since we’ve had so many questions in the past regarding resizing images, I will bring my laptop in and we can go over image resizing in Lightroom and Photoshop and how it may affect your images.

See you at 7 pm tonight!
