February meeting recap and what to look forward to at March meeting

Our February meeting was held on February 21, 2019

Meeting started with introductions.
Members will be able to showcase their favourite photographs in the future in the display cases in the upper level of Casa. Details to follow.
Photo Fusion will be held on March 5 & 6 from 7pm – 9pm. February 25 is the deadline for submissions if you would like to enter a sow for photofusion.

This month’s theme was Tree (single). There were 20 submissions.
Gord Ayers presented a “Being There” segment called, “Russia in 10 Days.” Five days were spend in Saint Petersburg and 5 days in Moscow. Incredible pictures of an amazing trip!

Chris Oates presented a slide show on the fieldtrip from the Winter Lights Festival from January 25 th .  Thank you Chris for putting this together each month, and thanks to all those who submitted pictures!

Valentina Tkachuk presented her Secret Assignment entitled ” Small Things”
Two remaining Secret Assignments/Photo Essays were handed out for the months of April & May.

The Ed Segment for the evening was a quick tutorial on how to create slide shows on Pro Show Gold and Pro Show Producer for PC, and iMovie for Mac Computers. Thanks to Ralph Arnold, Lorelei Hoffarth, and Irene Forsey for taking the time to demonstrate. This should help those who wanted to put shows in Photo Fusion, but were unsure how.

What to look forward to for the March 21st meeting:

The theme for March is ‘cell phone picture”.  Send in your favorite photo taken on a cell phone.  Images are due before midnight on Sunday March 17th.  Critiquing will take place on Monday in the small meeting room beginning at 7:00 pm.  Everyone is welcome to the critique session.

Lorelei will give an ed segment on tips for compositions.

Brani will present a fun short video on Bokeh.  Bokeh is our theme for the May meeting, so hopefully this will give you some tips on how to produce the prettiest, creamiest Bokeh… as well as finally end the discussion on the proper way to pronounce it!

Peter will be giving his secret assignment.  As well, there will be a show which was submitted for photofusion, but we could not fit in.

I believe that is it!  Hope to see you there!
