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??

Monica Royal has agreed to hold a workshop at the PAB for SCACC members only. The signup with be available soon on her website. The cost is $125. I’ve taken this workshop twice and each time it was fantastic. Details to follow soon
This will be a small hands-on workshop. Monica will bring a light table and 2 macro light tents for everyone to play with. She will bring lots of cool macro subject matter to photography, gadgets and gizmos-a-plenty! She will also bring some tools for applying water drops and teach the technique involved in that process. Attendees will need to bring:
What to bring: Essentials: 1) macro lens; 2) tripod; 3) light source; flashlight, portable LED etc; 4) subject matter – anything that inspires you or challenges you; 5) Your imagination!
Not necessary but IF you have these, bring them: 1) Cable release / remote trigger system; 2) a small black (and one of white) piece of cardstock or foam core etc. Even painted cardboard will work; 3) Clips, clamps, closepins. Tape, glue etc. anything else that you use to secure objects or lean things on; 4) If you want to work with water, bring a spray bottle and anything you might use to apply drops (I also have applicators that I will share)
Start thinking about your prints for the Fair! Prior to this workshop Larry will ask members to submit 3 jpegs via email. He will critique and recommend changes using Photoshop. Larry is a first-class instructor and we are thrilled to have him on our roster.

Theresa Jackson will give us a presentation on making selections and masking in PhotoShop. She is tailoring the presentation to novices and advanced users. When we get close to the presentation date, she will provide me with images for the demos which I will share with the Club. Anyone who wants to follow along, can put the images on their laptop and bring it to the meeting. NOTE: She will not be able to slow down too much for inexperienced individuals ~ she has a lot of material to cover.
Competition: Negative Space
“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.”
Competition: Animal with name starting with P
(Like “pig” or “porcupine” or “platypus”… or your choice)
