  • The city is having “Take Part in Art” at Lincoln park on June 18.  John Barbier will provide a 3 sided shade cloth for the club booth.  Members can bring examples of our work and products.
  • Competitions were discussed.  It was decided not to have club competitions and to add a second category to the PSA competitions (wildlife).  Critique / judges sheets were discussed.  Folks generally want to get feedback on their photos and others for personal learning.  In the future, the forms will be posted on the website.   A couple of edits are needed on the Dieter form.  
  • Bob Clarke and others discussed learning work flows for editing particularly for different software.  Considering having 3 members that use different software to walk through their work flows.  Bob C. is looking for 2 volunteers.  Please email him.
