From our April 15 Zoom meeting we recorded part of the meeting. When I realized I could not record the meeting without host permission we were past the business part of meeting. Kathleen could not find the button to push allowing someone else to record. So she recorded Frank Comisar’s presentation. The video is about 39 minutes long and Frank had already began talking and we missed the first part of his presentation. Another new thing to do with Zoom that had its learning curve extended.
Frank Comisar is a previous club president and member. He now lives in Durango, Colorado and has his own business call Scenic Aperture. He left Omaha in 2014 to become a full time nature photographer. He shoots with Fuji equipment for wildlife and Canon for landscape. He gave us a presentation on his Antarctica Expedition trip from January 2020. After his presentation he did talk a bit about his company and upcoming field trips.
May 20, 2021 Meeting
There are new employees at the Fontenelle Forest. Seems to be some confusion in the scheduling of events and it is impacting our normal third Thursday of the month meetings. One executive assured me we were set to have our next meeting on May 20. Someone scheduled an event with another group on this same night. Kathleen is trying to resolve this conflict with forest executives. We want to get the raptor group to show us some birds on this night starting at 6:30 PM. You will need to bring your camera to photograph these raptors on the patio, I will let everyone know when it is resolved.
FONTENELLE FOREST PHOTOGRAPY CLUB MINUTES
APRIL 15, 2021
Meeting called to order by President Phil Mininni
This was a Zoom meeting with 15 members present.
Our Secretary Eric Scholar was absent, so Sue Mininni filled in to take minutes. There were no additions or corrections to the last meetings minutes.
Photos for our display at the Forest will continue to be Water as we had a lot to put up.
Donna Gray was absent so no updates on the Photo Contest.
Per our Treasurer Kathy there is still $1500 in the Treasure and we would like to make a donation to the Raptor Organization to buy frozen rats for feeding them.
A Stone Mountain GA pic for our display of rocks offended a visitor and it was asked that we remove it. There was a brief discussion on how the members in attendance felt about us being censored like that.
May 20th will be our next in person meeting at 6:30 with hopefully a Raptor shoot.
It has been asked that we still have a zoom meeting in addition to the in-person meeting.
Please think of sending Phil your own personal photos for your own portfolio on the club website.
