The club continues to hold its meeting via the Zoom app due to the Covid pandemic. Eighteen people participated. The meeting began with opening remarks from our President, Judy LaFratta, who spoke about the status of our Virtual Photo Show. All together two hundred and eighty-one entries were submitted and all have been sent to the three judges. The jury will select the finalists and judges will meet via Zoom on May 21 to discuss the entries and make their final decision. The winners will be posted on the website on May 22.
The theme for the next edition of Shuttertalk will be “Cities. Submissions should be submitted to Norma Woodward at . There will be a Fredericksburg Agricultural Fair this year with a photo contest. It will be held from July 30 until August 8. Various members participated in the VMRC show in Harrisonburg. In the show at FCCA, Penny Parrish came in third and Chris McClintock received Honorable Mention. In the Fine Arts Show, Vickie Varela came in first in the photography category. For the upcoming show at Liberty Town Arts, submissions should be dropped off beginning May 28. There was an article by Norma Woodward in “Front Porch.” The themes for future meeting can be found on the club’s website.
The Community Center may be open in late summer. As far as our meetings are concerned, some members like meeting on Zoom and some want to start meeting in person. While a firm decision has not yet been made about this, logistics will have to be worked out to perhaps have a hybrid meeting..
Judy then turned over the meeting to Lewis Katz with his presentation on “Lightroom.” Members were encouraged to ask questions. He stressed that it will be difficult to give comprehensive information on Lightroom due to the short time period of the meeting and the complexity of the program. Instead, he will demonstrate some of its capabilities. As suggested, the presentation was a mixture of information and questions from members.
Until the Community Center reopens we will hold our monthly meetings virtually using the Zoom platforms.
