We’re Live, We’re In-Person, We’re Back!
July Meeting at The Village – July 14, 7:00 pm
Hi fStops Family, for the first time in nearly two-and-a-half years, we’re returning to in-person meetings starting this next week, July 14, at The Village: 9222 Corbin Ave, Northridge. Dr. Leslie Krane will once again judge for us this and next month. July is Open Assignment.
For Everyone’s Safety - ** Please Read **
For the protection of our members, as well as the residents of the Village, facemasks will be required at all times. You will also need to complete a brief Covid questionnaire (click here) to present when you arrive. Park downstairs and come up the elevator to the 1st floor. Look for our check-in table in the elevator lobby where we’ll give you a name badge in exchange for your completed questionnaire. The badge is your pass to join the meeting.
New – Two Categories: Print & Digital – Please Read
Since we’ll be in-person once again, and lots of fStops members love making prints, we’ll have two categories of entries: Print and Digital. This means we will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for each category. You will still need to submit your printed images via our website and include the work “PRINT” after your member ID so that we can send it to the judge in advance and also have it projected on-screen at the meeting. As before, prints should be 12” x 12” or larger, mounted and matted. (Visit this link to learn more about matting your images.)
As a door prize, attending members will automatically be entered to win a complete studio kit, with light stands, backdrop stands, greenscreen backdrop (easy and cheap to buy others), and four or five continuous studio lights (CFL) with softboxes. It's a great first studio for stills or video and packs into two easy carrying cases. You must be present to win this.
Or watch on Zoom
If you are not able to attend the meeting in person, you can still watch it on Zoom. You will not be able to interact with the in-person attendees, but chat will be open and monitored in case you have a question or comment.
We are truly excited to return to almost-pre-Pandemic times. Things will be different, but we are still getting closer to the heart of our Club. Once again, members will be able to socialize with meet other members in-person and be a greater part of our photographic community. We look forward to seeing you Thursday, July 14 at The Village!
We’re looking forward to seeing you.
