The fieldtrip to Durand this Saturday has been cancelled. It is supposed to rain all across the state, and we only had 4 people interested. We will discuss at the first meeting in November and choose a date to reschedule this fieldtrip. Thanks! Claudia
Many, many thanks to Jim Crapko for opening his home and letting the Club photograph his wonderful Halloween Village. Kaz
Our fieldtrip to Durand is on Saturday, October 28th. We are going to shoot the old Train Station. We can also go inside, it is a museum. We will carpool from the library at 8 am. Park in the back of the library. See everyone there!
Jim Crapko is inviting everyone over to his house for a Halloween shoot on Tuesday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. This will replace our October 17th meeting. Jim sets up an elaborate Halloween Village (miniature) with lots of opportunities in different areas for close up pictures of buildings and figures with unique lighting conditions. Bring cameras, lens (close-up/ zoom / macro, with fast f-stops) and tripods (if desired). Snacks and drinks will be provided. Jim lives at 14851 Stuart Ct., Gibraltar. phone #734.671.6824
On Tuesday, we were unable to have a meeting or competition due to the power outage at the library. We all went to the Coney, as usual and talked about how we were going to resolve the issue of not have our October competition. Here is what we are going to do: PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
NOVEMBER 7 MEETING: WE WILL BE HAVING THE OCTOBER COMPETITION. This will be for pictures that were already submitted. The deadline is past, so no more entries will be accepted.
DECEMBER 5 MEETING: WE WILL BE HAVING THE NOVEMBER COMPETITION. So you will have until November 29th (and usually Jim will accept them thru that weekend) to get your competition pics entered.
JANUARY 2ND WE WILL HAVE THE DECEMBER COMPETITION IN LIEU OF THE PICTURE OF THE YEAR. We did this so the December entry winners will be included in the Picture of the Year Competition.
JANUARY 16 WE WILL HOLD THE PICTURE OF THE YEAR COMPETITION.
IN OTHER WORDS, ALL COMPETITIONS ARE BEHIND BY ONE MONTH. Any questions please feel free to contact me at 734-658-7002. Claudia
