For our second meeting in April on the 15th we will have a guest speaker in lieu of a workshop. Andreas Brown from Slice of Life Photography will be coming to speak to our group. He has selected "Lighting" as the subject, which should benefit us all. Andreas has a "full of life" personality and will be an awesome asset to our learning experience. He will be happy to answer any and all questions we have on lighting or any other photography subject. Let's have a good turnout at this meeting to welcome Andreas to our club! Thanks! Claudia
Everyone: Here is a post that Bob Panick put out on our Club's facebook page. Please add your comments so we can decide what to do. Claudia
Bob Panick I finally found some time to look for places to stay in Hocking Hills. Every time I've been there before we stayed in a friend of mines camper. So I was surprised to find that there don't appear to be much in the way of hotels around the area. The closest of the chains that I would trust is 13 miles away (Holiday Inn Express). Rates were in the $135-$145 range.
There are also a lot of cabins around, at varying price ranges, oddly many aren't really that much cheaper.
So those of you who may be interested, can I get some feedback. Did you want to do Fri, Sat, Sun or just Sat, Sun?
The dates I was looking at were the weekend of April 25, 26, 27. The question is timing it for good water flow and/or flowers. Early May might be better, but it's always one of those guessing games with the weather.
The hotel is Holiday Inn Express
12916 Grey Street Logan, Ohio 43138
My thought is for everyone to make their own reservation and figure out if anyone wants to room together
Time is running out to send entries for the International Competition with London. Due date is April 15. So far I have entries from: Bob Panick, Dan Holowicki, Mike Coleman, Mike Sporka and my own. We do not have near enough photos to enter this competition with London, so I urge all of you to send me your best pics. Email them to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you size them the same way we do for monthly competitions with the exception of the resolution. Instead of 100 please make them 300. I would like to choose the judging committee next meeting. We have quite a few excellent photographers with superb judging skills and experience in our group and I am sure we will come up with a good committee. After the final pics are chosen for the competition, Dave will get a judge to do the scoring and critiquing of our pictures and those of the London club so see which club wins the competition. It was close last year, but we lost I think by a point or two. Lets show them this year that WE are the better photographers by kicking their butts!! Send me your greatest!
