One thought on “June Meeting Minutes and Contest Results

  1. I would like to thank all of you in the photo club. Being in the club taught me so much about something I love to do. Before the club I knew nothing of post editing and not as much about composition. Being apart of a group that was open and willing to share skills and Techniques was a blessing. I was only in the Club a short three years and met some great people I can call friends. Frank Comisar, Allen Kurth, and so many more were great assets to my growth as a wildlife and nature photographer.
    I want to thank you all for your confidence in my skills by voting my work Member’s Choice. These past three years have been awesome/ Work did not allow me to get out to any of the photo walks but did enjoy a walk with Allen Kurth a couple times. This was a fun ride and I will still be posting and watching for all of your shared work.
    Lonny Holman
