Sorry for the very late newsletter, but I wanted to make sure to remind
everybody about the meeting coming up on Monday night.
We've got some bad news, and good. A couple of days ago I received a call
form Joe Baraban and he was once again called out to shoot a job out of
town. Since his plane doesn't get it until late Monday, he will be unable
to do the program for us. The good news is that Rodney Navarre has
consented to move his presentation from April, to the March meeting.
Rodney will be presenting the work of several famous Black&White
photographers. He will be pointing out of similarities and differences of
their work. This is insight you can apply to your own work, and to help
understand work done by others. I really look forward to his presentation.
Rodney is an excellent B&W fine arts photographer.
More good news. Joe Baraban will give his presentation on a night other
than our normal meeting night. Right now April 2 looks promising, I will
have to check with the library to make sure we can get the space. Joe is
a world-class location commercial photographer. His clients list includes
such names as Coca-Cola and
Joe's web site on www.woodlandsphoto.org, so be sure to check it out. I
will let everyone know exactly when the program will be presented. Keep
In April we would like to have a presentation from an expert on Wildflower
Photography. This is to help us get ready for the tremendous wildflower
bloom that we should see this spring. If you have any suggestions for
such a program, please let Cathy Evans or me know about it.
Attached are the rules for the Spring Competition. They are in PDF
(acrobat) format. If you have problems reading it, let me know.
We are doing things a little different this year. Since there is no room
in the upstairs area of the library, the show will be displayed in the
conference room. This will actually give us more room, and a good chance
to view and discuss the photos during the May meeting. Please read the
rules carefully, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask myself
or one of the other board members.
We are really short handed this year, so please give us a hand and
volunteer for some of the events coming up. I will discuss this in
detail at the meeting on Monday.
Until then, good shooting, good printing, or whatever makes you happy,
George Carlson, President
