The club held its February meeting via the Zoom app. Members were sent a link via e-mail that they could click on to join the meeting. All
together twenty-two people participated. The meeting started with opening remarks from our President, Judy LaFratta, who introduced the presenter, Irene Sacilotto, with her presentation entitled “A Passion for Wildlife Photography”.
Before beginning the actual presentation, Judy took care of some club business. After the webinar in January, she asked if the members found the webinar useful and would be interested in having more webinars. Since Anne McGrath moved to Baltimore, the Zoom meetings will be set up by Mike Fleckenstein. With reference to our Annual Show, emails have been sent out, and the forms are on the website. Submissions need to be postmarked by April 28. The dates for the show are May 6 to May 9. An
alternate plan is already in the works if the Dorothy Hart Center will still be closed. Mike Fleckenstein will be in charge of those arrangements. The theme for the next issue of Shuttertalk is “Communication.” Many of our members participated in the most recent show at FCCA. Upcoming shows were mentioned and members were encouraged to participate. The topics for our future meetings were mentioned.
Irene Sacilotto then began her presentation. Besides showcasing her wildlife photography, she also gave tips on the equipment and techniques she used to capture those images. When the presentation was over, she answered questions from various members. Everyone agreed that it was a very interesting and informative presentation.
