Welcome: The meeting was opened by President Zak . There were a total of 13 members present and 6 guests.
Zak explained to the potential new members and guests that the club meets every month on the 3rd Tuesday and that the membership fee is $25 for individual members and $40 for family memberships. The fees help the club pay for guest speakers, trips, and training sessions as well as rent for the space in the Center for the Arts.
The club website and email address are on the first slide of the slide show and there is a calendar of events on the web site.
There is a current balance of approximately $4,125.
The club needs someone to coordinate the volunteer fundraising activity at the Crow River Winery and dinner theater. This coordinator will need to commit to being there all 3 nights that the club members will be serving food. Anyone who might be interested should contact Kristine for details. We would like to have this coordinator lined up by August.
The 48 in 48 photo challenge will be August 5 through August 7. The categories will be released to the participants at 5 pm on Friday, August 5. The deadline for signing up for the contest is 5 pm on Friday, August 5. All photos entered in the challenge are due by 5 pm on Sunday, August 7. There is a wide variety of prizes for this contest including door prizes.
- How to Make Portraits using Natural Light with Kristine on July 5, 2016 at 7 pm. The cost for this workshop is $5.00 per person.
- Macro Workshop with Dave Johnson from National Camera on Sunday, July 10 from 1 pm until 5 pm. The cost for this workshop is $15.00 per person.
- Composition with Linda Baysinger Peck on Wednesday, July 27.
Anyone interested in attending these workshops should contact Zak or Kristine by email. Future workshops like these will require a minimum attendance of 4 because we need to pay to rent this space.
We are headed to York Farm after the club meeting tonight. There are a lot of interesting things for photographers including structures, pigs, pond, vineyard, and flowers. Feel free to roam at your own pace. Anyone who would like to can share their photos with York Farm by uploading those photos to the club’s Flickr account.
In July, we will be touring local gardens, like we did last year. We also have the option of setting up and shooting still lifes here at the Center for the Arts for those who don’t want to go on the garden tour.
For those who ordered photo club shirts, the online store, created just for us is closing this Friday.
