Since this seminar is free we cannot provide class notes at the meeting. The venues do not allow us to charge for meetings held there or to exchange money on their facilities (including the parking lot).

It is highly recommended that participants print out and bring their own class notes to the seminar. You need to be logged in to the GCPC Meetup site with your password to be able to download these documents. The class notes are available at the link below:


If you cannot directly open the above link for seminar notes - although the above links have been tested on both Windows and Mac computers using Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari - some people with some browser settings have reported not being able to directly open these files from within their browsers. As you can understand we do not have the time to help every person troubleshoot their browser settings, as there are almost an infinite number of issues that can cause this problem.

If you can't open the links given above directly by clicking on them, do the following. On the GCPC home page, directly under the words "Greater Cincinnati Photographers Club" is a menu bar. On the far right of that menu bar is "More." Pull "More" down to "Files." Under "Files" you will see the document.

Right click on the files desired and save them to your desktop or wherever. Then open them. They are Adobe Acrobat PDF files that you should be able to open in any PDF reader.
