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.
Until the Community Center reopens we will hold our monthly meetings virtually using the Zoom platforms.
A link to the virtual meeting will be e-mailed to each member about 2 days before the meeting
