HOT SUMMER PRINT SALE
Saturday, June 7 -- 10 A.M. to
1441 W. Alabama
of our club members are showing their pints at the Houston Center
for Photography annual print sale. Come see their work and support
their efforts -- and meet many other photographers in the Houston
area. This is a fun and enriching day of mixing, making friends, learning
what people like so your photos will sell better in the future, and
letting people citywide know about our club.
MONTHLY MEETING & PRESENTATION
Monday, June 9 -- 6:30
to 8:45 P.M.
A special presentation by Jim McCary
from the Humble Camera Club. He will share his special slides from
a trip to Mt. Kilamanjaro and bring some digital
cameras for a lively discussion on going digital, a topic
to prepare us for our June Field Trip (see below). Bring
your Strawberry festival images to share as well.
FIELD TRIP: TRY OUT DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
14 -- 8:30
A.M. to 1 P.M.
The Woodlands Information Center
We're gathering up a few professional
digital cameras for members
to use on this field trip, a terrific hands-on opportunity to try
using digital cameras and get to know the world of digital photography.
John Masters, a club member who is adept at this technology and good
at explaining things, will give us a mini-workshop on tricks
of the digital trade. We meet at The Woodlands Information
Center for his overview and shooting, and then go to John's house
near the TPC to check images on his calibrated monitor and learn the
back half of the digital work.
OF OUR JULY MONTHLY MEETING:
SUMMER PICNIC AND MEMBER SLIDE SHOW
Saturday, July 19 --
6:00 to 10:00 P.M.
Shadowbend Park, The Woodlands
families are most welcome --
Instead of our regular meeting at the Library, we're planning a
terrific summer evening of park fun, a picnic cookout
(fajitas and drinks catered, other food brought by members),
swimming for the kids with a lifeguard present, and about 90
minutes of members' favorite slides -- the cream of the
crop. Those interested in showing slides should contact a board
member at the next meeting to get on the list. We can probably accommodate
about 25 members this way. Members' families and significant others
are most welcome to come enjoy the park activities, pool, food,
and slides. We will send a special email invitation to you
with all the details of this great event.
