January 4th Club Meeting

Join us for the first SPS Meeting of the new year, Friday, January 4th, 2013 at 7:30pm at the Briarcliff Baptist Church. Our speaker and judge will be John Mariana, who will be giving a presentation titled "NATURE ENHANCED NATURE IN COLOR AND B&W". In 1980 John started using photography in connection to his art background to create color images. By 1984 black and white prints became his specialty. Today, John uses photography to create fine art black and white and color prints expressing his thoughts and artistic vision.

Our competition theme this month is OPEN: The Open competition allows photographers to enter their best work on any subject. The image must have been taken within the past 12 months so anytime in 2012 will qualify.

    My transition from film to digital has been made much easier from my association with this club. I was a member about 25 years ago, and I'm glad to be back.
