Some of the members have received an e-mail from me asking that they purchase e-bay gift cards and send me pictures of both sides. This is a scam!!!
Addresses were hacked and mail sent from someone else’s e-mail address and had my name attached. My proper e-mail address is not ssophiabj#gmail.com. I removed the @ sign. I am trying to get google to investigate. So far I have been informed by three people that they received a mailing asking for gift cards. These three are board members.
If you receive an email from me asking you to send money, buy me something…etc. Please disregard!
Since the Forest and Bellevue Library are opening up, I have decided not to display photo subject assignment that can now be put up at the forest and library. I had only received three photos so far anyway. Judy Dye should be contacting her teams to set up day and time for putting up photos soon.

Brent Headley’s Golden Ratio
Brent is a member. He took the golden ratio to one of his photos.
He says; The video and composition suggestions really helped! Here is a before and after of an image. I think the final is a much stronger composition than the original.
Need suggestions for the website. I have started (early in process) looking at revamping the website. I am learning how to develop a sub-domain and will be experimenting with new formats. I would also like to talk with you if you have experience in WordPress websites. Still having issues with some security issues too. I think a new website is warranted.
I want to thank all of you who gives me words of encouragement to keep going on to being your president. I know you all want to be president someday. It is not that hard, when your board has your back and have been very helpful. Though I am also your webmaster. This is more challenging and I am enjoying administrating it. Thanks to you all,

I wanted to pass along a couple of opportunities I was made aware of last week. I will be sharing these on social media on Monday (National Nature Photography Day), but wanted to make sure to pass them on to the Photo Club directly.
The rep from NebraskaLife Magazine specifically asked that I share his request for wildlife images with our photo club. J

Photo Displays – Library and Forest
Since we have not been able to hang our subject photos at the library and the forest, I was thinking of doing a virtual display on the website. I would have pages set up for the different subjects assigned to us.
The most recent subjects were
We have no word yet when we will be able to have access to the library and forest to hang our photos.

There is plenty of time to submit your moon shot(s). The photos can be added to this portfolio. The photos do not need to be a full moon. I hope to see more submissions. Send to webmaster your moon photos.
