Weather reports call for more snow later so we are cancelling the meeting for tonight, 2/6/18
For tonights meeting, club member Julie Dodge will present a program on “Printing and Mounting Your Photos”.
Julie will demonstrate on the computer how to adjust your images for the best printing results. The program will cover techniques to brighten your photos to get optimum whites while retaining dark colors for contrast and impact. We’ll discuss how different papers produce different results and view samples so you can judge for yourself.
When the print is dry we’ll move onto the mounting process. Julie will share her techniques that will make it easy for you to enter a securely mounted print in competitions. She will also share tips for matting and framing, as some competitions require a more finished look.
Throughout the demonstration you will learn what supplies you need to set up shop, where to purchase them, and how to value shop for the best bargains.
Hope to see you at the meeting tonight.

Join us on 11/7 for a presentation by Kara Karmienski, a local professional wedding photographer from Washington, IL. She has a teaching degree from University of Illinois and offers classes in photography from kids level up to professional. She has photographed over 250 weddings in the past seven years.
Kara is going to talk to our group about lens choice in her shots, her class offerings and talk to us about her experience as a professional photographer in general.
Come out tonight for a presentation by Craig Stocks in the first half. Jim Burnham will do a short presentation on the Black Hills Photo Shootout in the second half.
Craig Stocks is a local landscape, portrait and fine art photographer. He offers workshops on night sky photography and other topics. From his website:
After working in the newspaper and studio businesses for several years, I chose to leave professional photography in 1977 to pursue a career as a mechanical engineer. Over the years, I retained my interest in photography, and the advent of digital processing rekindled my passion. I was able to retire at the beginning of 2009 and began an encore career in photography with an emphasis on fine art large scale landscape and abstract figure photography.
I’m also active in the local Central Illinois arts community. I am an active volunteer member of the ArtsPartners of Central Illinois marketing committee and I am currently helping organize the Central Illinois Artist Organization 1st annual CIAO Art Experience and Exhibition as part of the 2014 Ignite Peoria arts celebration (www.ignitepeoria.com). I also publish the Playing Peoria website where I feature photos and stories about local artists and entertainers.
I’ve been fortunate to be able to work with the U.S. National Park Service. In 2009, I served as an Artist in Residence / volunteer photographer at the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Southern Arizona, and in 2010, I served part time as a volunteer photographer for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco. For 2011, I’ve been selected as one of two Artists in Residence at the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin. It’s a great way to support the National Park system while doing something I love.
