Dan Holowicki has gratiously invited the club to have a barbeque summer picnic at his house on August 20th at 6:30. He will supply bbq pulled pork, grilled hot dogs, and bratwurst, ice tea and lemonade. If everyone would like to bring a dish to pass, that would be great. He needs a headcount so he knows how much to buy. So if everyone could let us know at the meeting tonight if would be helpful. Dan might not be able to make tonight's meeting and asked me to do a headcount.
His address is 13824 Longtin, Southgate, 1 block west of intersection of Superior and Trenton Rd. See you all tonight! Claudia
Tuesday's Workshop will be instructed by Mike Sporka. The subject is focus stacking. I hope we have a good turnout for this class. It sounds interesting! Below is Mike's description of what he will teach:
Hoping there is a good turnout next Tuesday (May 21) when focus stacking (primarily involving close up/flower photography) will be presented. I will present the “manual” method realizing that many members have in camera focus stacking capability (including touch screen focus ability) therefore a highly interactive approach to this subject will benefit all of us. I can tell you that focus stacking can make a profound difference in your images. Keep in mind macro photography is coming up as a competition in November.
