Poly Potluck
Nov 16 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

We will be meeting at the PAB for Poly’s annual feast and photo sharing. Bring something yummy to share with your fellow club members. We’ll begin at 9:30.

Those who wish to help with set-up, please arrive around 9:00. We’ll be dining in the main projection room. This is always a great chance to chit-chat and have fun with fellow club members. After our potluck, we’ll view images from members.

If you want to share images, please bring them on a stick-drive the day of the event. A CD or DVD will suffice, but a stick drive is best. Your presentation should be no more than 5 minutes. It’s always fun to see what others can come up with in this non-competitive atmosphere. Maybe a special project you’ve been working on or images from your vacation, etc. This can be a PowerPoint, video or a series of photos. Any images from a this year’s Poly outings such as Santa Fe, St. George or Mission San Juan Capistrano would be a nice highlight.

The morning will end when our stomachs are full and the images have been viewed, sometime around noon??

Lauralee Humes: Her photographic journey
Jun 20 @ 9:30 pm – 11:00 pm

“This is not a workshop on techniques, but a very personal perspective where I bare my early images and photographic journey to the present in hopes of encouraging or inspiring others to be true to themselves in life and as a photographer, and to go confidently in the direction of their dreams knowing their photographs make a difference in their life and the lives of others. I encourage questions during the presentation.”
