March Monthly Meeting

The theme for the meeting as announced at the February meeting is black & white photography, especially winter b/w. Check out the message board for some tips!

Here's a rundown on how the monthly meeting goes.

Meeting Timeline

1. "Pick Three" slideshow:
We will present each person's pictures, ask that person to introduce themselves, and then talk a little about one or two of them. The group also has an opportunity to offer up praise, constructive criticism, or ask questions about that member's pictures. Then we move on to the next member's photos.

2. Technique Presentation and Discussion:
Each month, we will present a quick (10-15 min) presentation on the monthly topic. After the presentation we will take some time to engage the group about the technique and answer any questions and get others to give their insight and experiences.

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
As to the source of the slideshow photos, the week before the meeting we will begin pestering those of you who RSVP'd yes 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 "March2013Meeting" or they might get missed.

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, 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. In the end, what is really important is that you just go out and shoot, so 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.

    It was great to see so many people at the meeting--familiar faces and new ones. And Steven did a great presentation on composition. Looking forward to working on our challenges for next month!

    Bummer. I had some unplanned errands that needed to be taken care of and I got home after the meeting started and still hadn't eaten.

    Well I'm sick, but was still going to brave it and just hide in the corner as to not infect anyone. BUT: last night I fell and sprained my ankle. So I give up; will keep my germy, crippled self home. Hope to be there next month; photos still sent.
