The output quality of our members pictures has really improved over the years. We are seeing a huge difference in not only the quality, but photographic knowledge displayed by our members. Many images in the armature section could just as easily have been in the professional section.
Great job everyone.
Fred Griggs was our judge for the evening.
You can tell by his face he was having a hard time picking the best of the best.
Our digital entries are gradually taking over the competition. This month we had over 65 submissions with prints running around 25.
Slides are still hanging in there at 14. I guess we all can see where this is all going.
With the addition of digital entries in the fair competitions now, I think we are in for one hell of a ride.
We discussed upcoming fieldtrips, programs and workshops. Everyone should check the LPA calendar for a complete list. Also, stay tuned in to the LPA website for up-to date information for changing times, locations and dates. Be sure to mark YOUR calendar and don’t miss the LPA event.
Dean Webb and Terri Garner both spoke about the proposed By-Law changes. All members will receive a By-Law (red-lined) email file to review and make any final suggestions with a final deadline. The board will review at the next board meeting and the final By-Laws will be presented at the next General meeting.
Glenn Olson, coordinator of the Friday Night Discussion Group at Bianco’s CafÃ©, gave an invite to all to stop on by! It’s a cafÃ© type atmosphere, where people come/go and the talk is all about photography… cameras, photo locations, techniques etc.
Congratulations to Doug Black, a new member for winning the 50/50.

Prints and slides are photographed during the presentation, and so will be of significantly lower quality than the original item.
