January Meeting To Feature PSA Judging

Retzer Nature Center
Camera Club
Wednesday January 4th, 7:00 PM
Merry Christmas to all! It is hard to believe that another year has passed and 2012 is just around the corner. It has been a pleasure to have each of you involved in the camera club this year. I hope that each of you has found something new to help you along your photographic journey. Our program for 2012 is taking shape nicely and I anticipate some great learning experiences.
At our January program we will be judging the PSA Region 21 images. These are images submitted by camera clubs from around the state (7 images per club), that are now being judged by all clubs. You may recall that our club finished in first place last year - a great showing for the club. This year promises to have some more great images. Because we will be judging in a dark room, please bring along a pen or pencil and a small flashlight to help you see the scoring sheet.
The second half of the meeting will be used to look at member images. This is a great opportunity to get some gentle critiques from fellow club members and use that information to improve your images. Please limit yourself to five images so more people will have an opportunity to participate. Image should be in a JPEG format. It is best if you bring them on a thumb drive and have only the images to share on the drive. That will save us time when we load them for viewing.
I have attached a brochure for the WACCO sponsored Moose Peterson seminar on March 10th. The seminar is at the Midway Hotel in Brookfield. Our club is a member of WACCO so your cost is $75.00 if you register by February 11th. This is a good chance to get some pointers from a professional nature photographer at a reasonable price. This could also be a good last minute Christmas gift for the photographer in your life. Or, leave the brochure on the kitchen counter as a big hint!
Have a great holiday with your family. See you in a week and a half at our first meeting of 2012.
Future Meetings: Feb 1st, Mar 7th, Apr 4th, May 2nd, June 6th
