To Ponder Photography
It has been decided that our meetings will always be on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at OUR SAVIOUR'S EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH, Fellowship Hall, 400 W 9th St., Hastings. At every meeting there is the opportunity to show off our work. Work is to be recent (ie photographed w/in the past 3 months), showing up to 5 pieces.
We had a wonderful guest speaker last evening, Art Dicke from the Cross Town Club. He told us about what sorts of activities they have, which reiterates the fact that we are well on our way to becoming a very successful and stable group of aspiring artists w/in the community. He showed us some of his work, which is very motivating to try new and interesting things including mounting 2 or more negs to become one picture, something like scratching of the photo to create outlines, and reversing negatives into positives into negatives into positives again.
To corroborate with the idea of becoming a successful group, we are putting together a brochure. One of the 1st places we'll use that brochure is when we work w/ local businesses and retail stores to obtain a juried gallery showing of our work. Details to follow this Fall.
Besides the above mentioned competition/gallery showing, we are keeping in step w/ other clubs by having guest speakers, competitions, field trips, a brochure about our group, and a summer BBQ. We are talking about having a small dues amount to help pay for the brochure, mailings, and other misc such as the fee for the park for the BBQ, etc. and we will become a member of TCACCC, and look for becomming a member of NCCCC (N4C's).
The upcoming schedule has changed slightly from the original plan. Here is what is being planned:
Other notes include: 3 members have been nominated to be the committee to determine an outline for the new Sept '99-July '00 yearly schedule. Some suggested topics were travel and field trips to places like colleges, Nerstrand Woods, White Water, up north, etc.; matting/framing; dark room; birds; macro; coloring B&W; guest speakers, competitions;
We will soon have our own website instead of having to be part of this one! Update to come!
