August Monthly Meeting

We will be in Meeting Room B.

The theme to work on for this session as announced at the July meeting is positive and negative space. Positive space is the subject in your photo, and negative space is the surrounding area that highlights and balances the subject. For some tips, check out this article or ask questions below.

After the "Pick Three" slideshow, co-organizer Bill will talk about night photography.

______________________________________________________
Our monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month. Here's the rundown on how the monthly meeting goes.

1. "Pick Three" slideshow:
You can submit up to 3 photos in advance of the meeting to share with the group. The photos are combined into a slide show. Then as the photos are presented you'll have an opportunity to introduce yourself and talk a little about your photos. 

2. Technique Presentation and Discussion:
Each month, we will present a short (10-15 min) presentation on the monthly topic. After the presentation, we will take some time for discussion and answer any questions. This is an opportunity for you to share your knowledge and experience too!

3. General Discussion:
When we are done sharing everyone's photos, we will open up the group to general discussion. This is where you can have your questions answered by a large diverse group of photographers. Sometimes we will continue the discussion over drinks nearby.

When to submit your pictures
The week before the monthly meeting, we will reminding those of you who RSVP'd to submit your photos.

Where to submit your photos
To submit your photos post them to our Flickr group and make sure to tag them "Aug2013Meeting" or they might get missed. For help posting to Flickr and to the group, see this thread from the discussion board.

What to take pictures of
As for the subject of your pictures, this is very open. The monthly techniques are intended to be somewhat of a homework assignment for you to practice over the following month, in this case positive/negative space, so submit these pictures if you were able to participate. Otherwise anything goes (but please keep it PG-13). If you have a picture you just love, send that. If you have a picture that didn't turn out right and you want help, submit that too. In the end, what is really important is that you just go out and shoot, and show us what you did.

When to take your pictures
The goal of this "show and tell" is to make sure people are getting out and taking pictures. So we would prefer if the pictures were taken since the last meeting. If you are new to the group, then by all means pick a few from your portfolio you are especially proud of, but we really want to encourage you to get out and shoot something new.

      Mark, I've got your pictures for tonight's Pick 3. I saw the three from you and assumed it was for the Pick 3. I'll demonstrate at the meeting how to tag photos.
