    The August First Thursday meeting featured a DIY workshop on digitizing film negatives by Paul Briggs.  The presentation may be found in the Member's Tips section of the web site.  Paul updated his presentation to include links to the "Instructables" videos he mentioned.  Paul has also offered to present on slide conversions to the club at a later date.  Additionally, Paul will be presenting the same instructional material on 8/20 at the Beaumont Library from 6:30 to 6:60 pm where attendees will take images of film negatives using their digital cameras and then convert the images on their laptops.  Thanks, Paul!

  • May Meeting Recap
    At the May meeting John Snell started with an encore presentation of a slideshow of club images from the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The annual club trip there is sure to be fun for all!

    Bill Fortney was the meeting's guest speaker and his presentation entitled "Learning to See Photographically" was both entertaining and informative.  Now retired, Bill after many years with Nikon has opted to shoot with lighter Fuji camera equiment and is enjoying his work, his life and his faith.  Thanks, Bill, for a great evening!

    Bill's complete presentation may be found in the Member Tips area.
