1/30 Tonights program: “Printing and Mounting Your Photos”

     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.
     7-9pm, First United Methodist Church
