I want to begin by thanking everyone who helped and participated in our Club’s events this past year! It was truly an honor being the president the past 3 years and I know Terry will do a great job and have fun stuff planned for 2015. Selfishly, I think I benefited the most from my role as I was able to meet and represent some great members. I learned a lot about photography and will continue to learn by participating in this Club. The one thing I hope that also continues (and I know it will) is to maintain a culture of inclusion and helpfulness. Thanks again!
The next meeting will be Wednesday, January 7th at 6:30 PM at the Phipps. Terry will kick off the meeting discussing the TCACCC InterClub Competition and our Club joining the N4C (North Central Camera Club Council). We will also be bringing back the Special Assignment Category. The topic for January and February is ‘Around the House’. During the Judged Salon (February Meeting) you will earn 1 extra point for submitting a photo of ‘things around your house’! With the cold and snow, we might not get out to shoot as much as we would like so take this opportunity to think outside the box and find some interesting things in and around your home!
The January meeting will feature Michael Waterman giving us a refresher on judging images. This is great for those interested entering competitions but also for us to do a better job critiquing our own images. Following this mini-tutorial we will have a non-judged salon. So send photos you would like to discuss and share to photos@wiphotoclub by Monday January 5th.
And… we had a great time at the Year End Party! The slideshows highlighting our Club’s top photos of the year is a treat – Terry will share them again I believe at the next meeting as well. For those of you that missed it – or want to relive it again!…I put a little video together. Thanks for the food, fun, photographs and friendship! See ya next year!
