Review of the March 2020 Meeting

The meeting was called to order at 7PM. There were eighteen members present and one guest. The Club President, Judy LaFratta, mentioned the fact that as of March, members will be responsible for setting up and putting back the chairs that will be left out for us by the staff at the Community Center. For our monthly Newsletter, she reminded members to submit pictures based on the themes posted on the website and to notify the editor if they have been accepted into a show. Information about our upcoming photo show is posted on the website. There was a discussion about posting members submitted photos on Facebook, opting out of posting any photos on Facebook and sending a questionnaire about this whole issue to determine preferences.

 

          Our guest speaker, Joe Parker, was introduced by our Vice-President, Helen Schwartz. Joe provided some background information on himself and his expertise in taking portrait photos. He started with a brief history of some of the best portrait photographers of the past and the present showing us their work and continued with a description of the qualities that make a good portrait such as lighting, expression, colors, location, props, etc. He highlighted the importance of telling a story through a portrait and the impact the portrait will have on both the people in the portrait and the recipients of the portrait.  During and after the presentation members asked questions.          The meeting ended at 9PM
