Robert Fields will both judge the open assignment images and provide information about our February assignment "Shadows and Reflections. Please submit your images by 8 p.m. on Monday January 6.
It is membership renewal time. Last year we added more photo events and learning opportunities for our members. We expect to continue to provide learning, inspiration, recognition and friendship. The fee is $40 and can be paid in cash or check at the meeting. You may also renew on line via PayPal. Here is the link: http://www.fstopscameraclub.com/membership.html
Lightroom Users Group
A group of our members went to an Adobe Lightroom workshop in December. It was very helpful. Afterward, I asked if there is an interest in having a Lightroom user's group. It would be an open session where members could bring their laptops and work on photos together. We are going to give it a go. I hope to have the first meeting at The Village on Thursday, January 23 at 6:30 p.m. People can bring their questions and together we can find answers and learn more about how to use the program. There will be a signup on our events page. I would like to have a couple of people to act as organizers as we get started. Please let me know if you are interested.
Photo Event: Ventura Harbor on January 24 at 2:30 p.m.
We will look for ways to capture images for the February assignment of Shadows and Reflections in Ventura. The harbor is right off the beach where there could be a great sunset. The marina offers lots of reflections on the water and in the windows of the storefronts. We are going in the early afternoon to catch the good light in the evening and to miss some of the traffic. There are several good restaurants where those who want to have dinner can do so. Look at fStops' event page to the sign up.
