MINUTES OF CLUB MEETING HELD ON SEPTEMBER 8, 2020
Our club continued to hold its monthly meetings using the Zoom app. Twenty-one members participated. Judy LaFratta announced that the club has locked down the dates for our next Photo Show. It will take place from May 3 to May 9, 2021.
While we do have the capability to record our Zoom meetings, we couldn’t do that for Kathi Weinheimer’s presentation on Cell Phone Photography. The meetings that are recorded can be uploaded to Google for sharing. Only the presentations meetings will be recorded, not the critique meetings.
The theme for the next edition of “Shuttertalk” will be “Oddities.” Members can submit up to two photos to Norma Woodward at email@example.com. The deadline for submission is Sept. 29.
Chris McClintock has two photographs in the juried show at FCCA. Odell Smith has photographs on display at CTBC Bank. Penny Parrish had two photographs accepted in Uniquely Stafford and one image in Art of Quarantine. David Boyd had two photographs accepted into the Potomac River Regional Art Show and two photographs in the show at FCCA. Whenever a member hears about any upcoming shows, please contact Norma so she can put that into the Newsletter.
The club still needs an Exhibit Coordinator. Anyone interested should contact Judy LaFratta. Norma Woodward said she would consider taking the position if another member could work along with her.
The presentation on Tangier Island has beenrescheduled for February 9, 2021.
Judy then began the critique portion by sharing her screen with the thirty-two photographs submitted on the theme of “Unique Views”, using knowledge from Norma’s presentation “A Different View.” The rest of the meeting was given over to discussion of the photos and suggestions for improvement.
