Sent on: Friday, May 31, 2013 9:47 AM



This is a brief update on the activities for this weekend and several big announcements on classes etc.

There are still opening for three educational programs tomorrow and Sunday. The Beginning Photography Workshop/Bootcamp has several openings.  The class includes a CD with several ebooks, a video and much more.  The all day workshop covers the basics of camera operation and we discuss exposure, dynamic range, auto focus, white balance, flash and more.  The instructor also leads a PhotoWalk to a nearby park to put the classroom theory into practice.  Please click here for more details and to signup.

We're offering a $70 discount on tomorrow's workshop/bootcamp. For tomorrow only, you can take the workshop for just $79.

Tomorrow is also Photo Critique Day at FCCP. There is still to time to assemble a brief portfolio of your best work and have the photos critiqued.  Participating in a critique is the first step in improving your photographs and becoming a better photographer.  Complete details and signup are online, here.

Need to learn Lightroom? Sunday is an all day workshop that teaches the ins and outs of Lightroom 4/5.  The instructor will be using the new Lightroom 5 Beta and it is available for a free trial until the end of June.

This workshop concentrates on the Library and Develop Modules, but also touches on the Print, Slideshow, Web, Book and Map Modules.  The workshop includes a two DVD set that contains over 12 hours of video tutorials that covers every aspect of Lightroom.

We're offering this Sunday's Lightroom workshop for just $69. That's a savings of $70.  Complete details and signup are on the site, here.

Do you want to shot fireworks this weekend? The 4th of July is just around the corner and this will be one of your last chances to practice before the big event.  Saturday you'll get a chance to shot about 20 minutes of fireworks and catch as great baseball game at Brighthouse Field as the Clearwater Threshers take on the Dunedin Blue Jays.  First pitch is 6:30 and fireworks should be around 9 PM.

Brighthouse Field is very photographer friendly and allows big lenses, tripod/monopods and you can roam the stadium for the best shots.  Instruction will be offered on shooting fireworks and a tripod is recommended.  You can leave your tripod in the car and retrieve it near the end of the game.

Purchase your tickets online and save a few bucks or purchase at the gate.  (Seniors 55+), children and active military + guest are just $5.  Parking is free or $2 depending on how close you park.  Complete details and signup are online, here.

Today is the last day to get the plugin for just $29.99, $20 off the regular price.  Here is the link to purchase.  Purchase of the software via the link helps FCCP get few copies of the software for giveaways and prizes and it does not increase your cost.  Please support FCCP by making purchases via the link.

Need help managing your emails?  We know you get a lot of emails from Meetup as a result of our group being so active.  You can control the amount and frequency of the emails by changing your personal communication settings.  Because of privacy restrictions we can't change settings for you.  Here is a link to help you make changes in your personal settings.  But remember, if you turn off your emails, you won't learn about any of our activities and if you don't visit the site at least every 6 months, you'll be removed from the group by Meetup (not FCCP) as inactive.

Lastly we have a sale on our FCCP Supporter Memberships. We had a one day sale Memorial Day offering the Supporter Memberships for just $40 and including two FREE In-the-Field Mini workshops and all the other Support Benefits.

Many non-supporters said they never got/saw the email and wondered if we would run the sale again.  OK, here you go, the sale starts now and ends Sunday at midnight.  No extensions, no excuses.  Here's your chance to join FCCP for 20% off and get all the other great benefits.  Please click here to become an FCCP Supporter for just $40.

Thanks for reading, we hope to see you in a class or on a PhotoWalk soon!
