Workshop Committee ~ Jim Wilson announced a cell phone workshop being conducted by Fiona Keyes on 11/16/19 from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm in the Choir Room at Westminster Presbyterian Church. This workshop is free and is limited to 20 participants. All interested members should send an email to Connie Snyder.
Anita Bower presented the “Everybody Edits” images in the Members Forum. Club members submitted an image and discussed how they edited it.
Ginia Apostolacus introduced the guest speaker, Lisa Cuchara, who presented Wabi-Sabi. This program explored the beauty of imperfect and/or unconventional subjects. As nature photographers we often seek out flowers, leaves and such that are perfect, with no blemishes or defects. This program highlighted subjects that are not perfect, such as flowers that have character, double headed flowers, decaying fall leaves, the deformed coneflower that stands out as flawed and hence different and beautiful, rust as it creates abstract patterns amidst the decay, etc.
