Members' Forum: A Conversation about Printing

The event was held on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

Presented by Dick Greenwood and Jim Samanen

Our November edition of the Members’ Forum will be an unusual offering.  Rather than featuring a technique, style, or approach to a different type of photography, we’re going to have a conversation regarding the question of printing for competitions.  Whether you print images or not, you’ve obviously made a decision.  This Forum will take the form of a conversation between all members who attend and a panel of members who have chosen to identify as printers.

The panel will feature Anita Bower, Dick Greenwood, Photographer of the Year, Peter Neuschul, and Jim Samanen.  We’ll start off with brief statements from the panelists and then jump into a conversation with the attendees.  Questions such as “Why do you or why don’t you print images?”, “What do you see as the advantages or disadvantages of printing?”, and “Do you look at printing from a cost-focused point of view?” will be addressed.


Westminster Presbyterian Church

Driving to and from Westminster Presbyterian Church. Care must be taken when driving to and from the church, since it is adjacent to US 202 (on the southbound side) and this is a busy road with lots of fast-moving traffic. Traveling to the church from West Chester and the northern side. Drive south on High Street or US 202 Southbound. After passing Stetson Middle School on the right, be aware that West Pleasant Grove Road is the very next right-hand turn after the jug handle at the Stetson light (about 500 yards down). Slow down as you come to this turn, then make a right and then a left into the church parking lot. Traveling to the church from the south side. Option 1: You can come north on US and turn left into West Pleasant Grove Road but there is no light there and it’s a dangerous turn and not recommended. Option 2: Come north on US 202 and make a left onto Route 926, Street Road. Drive on 926 for 0.9 miles, make a right on South New Street, drive 0.6 miles, make a right on West Pleasant Grove Road, drive 0.8 miles and make a right into the church parking lot. Parking and entering the church. The church is a large facility and there are many entrances. We need to enter via the main entrance, which is a large feature of the church with a stone portico. You can’t miss it. Park anywhere near there; there are plenty of spaces. Please do not park in any restricted spaces. Leaving the church. To travel south, you can leave the church lot and travel south on US 202. Merge carefully! To travel north, note that you can NOT make a left onto US 202 northbound. You must do one of the following. Option 1: Travel South on US 202 to Route 926, then make a left and use the shopping center parking lot to change directions to the northbound road. Option 2: Leave the parking lot by turning left on West Pleasant Grove Road, then make a right on South New Street. New Street will take you north through the WCU campus and into West Chester. (Make a right on Rosedale to get back to High Street.)
