Photo Displays- Judy Dye

  • Fall: Autumn and churches
  • February: Anything old and trees
  • April: Forms in nature and glass.


PROGRAM: The program for tonight is The One Lens Shoot.

Jay explained the program including the rules and rationale for this. This is where we will shoot a particular topic over the next month using one focal length. Any camera can be used but we should stick to one focal length with all images taken. With the exception of some contrast and color correction no computer corrections should be made in the original photo. A different subject will be chosen each month.

The first topic for the year will be Leaves. At the next meeting everyone should bring in a 4 X 6 print of his or her best photo with the appropriate information on the back.. Members of the club will then pick the top 3 images.

Thanks to Kathleen Rose and the Keefes for treats tonight.

Submitted by Eric Scholar, Secretary.
