MINUTES OF CLUB MEETING HELD ON OCTOBER 13, 2020
Our club continued to hold its monthly meetings using the Zoom app. Twenty members participated. Judy LaFratta began the meeting by mentioning that the “waiting room” on Zoom was a good idea. There were two guests present at this meeting, Taylor Perez and Eva Johnson. Kathi Weinheimer joined the meeting since she gave the presentation in August on cell phone photography. The club needs to know ahead of time if there will be a guest at the meeting. The Secretary will send out the Zoom invite to invited guests.
With reference to renewal of membership dues, all accounts were frozen since the club was not meeting in person. If a member received an e-mail about dues, it means that dues are owed and, when the member renews, the renewal period will be from November to November.
The Exhibit Coordinators will be Norma Woodward and Carol Bochert. Chris McClintock has agreed to act as Co-Chair and will present ideas of where members can exhibit their work, and Carol will assist with that.
For the November edition of Shuttertalk, the topic is “Family”.
David Boyd came in second and third in the Potomac Regional Art Show. The theme for the next show at FCCA will be “Flora and Fauna”, and the deadline for submissions is November 6. The dates for our 2021 show are from May 3 to May 9.
With reference to sending photos for our critique meetings, they should be sent to Judy LaFratta. When sending the photos, members should put “Photos For Evaluation” in the subject line. Please go to the MEETINGS tab for upcoming meeting dates, presentations and critique subjects. There were twenty-nine submissions for the critique portion of the meeting based on the August presentation on “Cell Phone Photography”. Besides identifying their respective photos, members were asked to mention which phone they used. Members agreed that the August presentation gave them knowledge that was useful in enabling them to take better photographs.
