Important Message re: Impact of Coronavirus Crisis
As of March 15th, all future meetings have been postponed until further notice, due to restrictions on group meetings which could increase the spread of this deadly virus. We will make every effort to keep members informed by e-mail of any change in the situation as time passes. We may still attempt to have our last competition/critique event, but it will be an online event instead of being held at our usual meeting location. Members will be invited to submit images as we have in the past. Hopefully our judge will cooperate by doing the judging at his own residence, then share the results and comments with us so we may publish them on the web. Keep an eye out for details in e-mails in the very near future.
Our previously scheduled shoot-out scheduled for March 28th and April 18 involving the Akron Roller Derby has been cancelled. We are still hopeful of attending sometime in May or June, but don't hold your breath!
Our scheduled June/July photography exhibit at the Stow-Monroe Falls Public Library has now been cancelled, as have most all meetings, etc, at local libraries, unfortunately.
We are in the process of setting up a Member's Gallery where members may share a few of their recent works or discuss various topics, and with luck, other members will be able to post their comments as well.
Future Saturday instructional sessions are continuing to be planned, but they will not be scheduled until the virus crisis has stabilized and things returned to normal.
Please be careful! Stay healthy until we can meet again. Now may be a good time to practice still life photography, or become more comfortable with all the things that your photography software is capable of doing!
