March  2021 meeting highlights

Submitted by Rosanne Rabito, Secretary

The club held its March meeting via the Zoom app. Twenty-three members participated. The meeting with opening remarks from our President, Judy LaFratta. Judy also introduced three people who recently became new members. Our Annual Photography Show will be held from May 6 through May 9. A decision will be taken by March 15 as to whether or not it will be held at the Dorothy Hart Center. If that will be the case, the public will enter and exit from the back doors. The club needs volunteers to distribute flyers around town and also to work during the show. The theme for next month’s issue of “Shuttertalk” is “Flora”. Photos should be sent to Norma Woodward.(e-mail address under Contacts tab).  While we have themes for some of our monthly meetings, we still need themes for the rest of the year.

 

Chris McClintock and Odell Smith are in a show at FCCA during the month of March. The Fredericksburg Fine Arts Show will be held from March 12 to March 14.

 

Judy then introduced David Boyd who began his presentation on “Monochrome Photography.” There was a lot of good information on exactly what monochrome photography is, including the difference between

monochrome and black and white, how to convert from color into

monochrome or black and white, and the various editing programs he uses. The presentation was followed by questions from the members.

The Dorothy Hart Community Center is closed until further notice due to the Corona (COVID-19) Virus outbreak.
