August Meeting Plans Announced

Retzer Nature Center
Camera Club
Wednesday, August 3rd, 7:00 PM
At our August meeting, we will be selecting seven images to submit to the PSA Region 21 (Wisconsin) Club Competition. Each club member is asked to submit up to three of his or her best images. At the meeting club members will choose the best of your three images and then pick seven images from the best from each member.
Images should be resized to the following specifications: JPEG format, no more than 800 KB file size, 100 resolution and no larger than 1024 (horz) x 768 (vert) pixels. Images may not have watermarks or anything that identifies the maker. If you can size your images, that would be great. If you have trouble doing this, do not let this stop you! We want your images. You can submit them in whatever size you have, and if your image is selected I can resize it for you. The important thing is we want everyone to participate!
Since we must submit seven images from seven different makers, everyone has a good chance of having his or her image selected. Everyone is strongly encouraged to participate - especially newer members. This is a good chance to get involved and show your work to the club.
In order for the meeting to progress smoothly, I am asking that you email your images to me prior to the meeting. That way I can have them loaded on my computer and avoid taking time at the meeting.
The meeting should be a lot of fun as we look at your images. I am looking forward to seeing images from everyone!
After the selection is complete we will take time to look at some of the images and offer gentle critique This is a good learning tool.
Looking ahead to our September meeting, we will be viewing images from our photo scavenger hunt. As a reminder, I have attached the instructions for the scavenger hunt. I hope everyone is having some fun with this!
I have also attached information about the WACCO sponsored Birds of Prey shoot on October 22nd. If you want to get some good bird shots, give this consideration.
See you next Wednesday
Future meetings: September 7th, October 5th, November 2nd, December 7th
