Thirty members were in attendance.
President Frank Comisar opened the meeting by announcing the need for executive officer nominations, for the following offices: President, Vice President, Secretary and Web Master. Contact Frank if you’d like to serve or want to nominate someone. Web Master is a new office created because the club newsletter will be integrated into our new website.
Contest Coordinator Doug French reminded us that the Club Show is quickly approaching. Your photos need to be ready to go by June 1st. So it’s time to get cracking! Start thinking about which pictures you’d like to enter and get them framed. If you can’t drop off your pictures on June 1st, you can make arrangements with either Doug or Kathleen Crawford-Rose. The judge this year will be Derrald Farnsworth-Livingston. For more information about the Contest, dates and rules, please visit our contest page.
Frank talked about the up and coming Club trip to the Sandhills in May. If you haven’t let Frank know you’re going to go, please contact him by April 26th. This should be a really fun trip with lots of opportunity to photograph the beauty of our state! For more information about the trip, visit this blog post.
After announcements we were treated by two excellent presentations. Frank Dye spoke about news photography. Frank Comisar demonstrated how to convert color images to black and white. Frank covered methods in Lightroom, Photoshop and Silver Efex Pro.
During the meeting next month we’ll be hearing from Frank Comisar. He’ll be demonstrating how to Combine multiple images in PhotoShop.
