----------- UPCOMING EVENTS -----------


Next Meeting:-September 13, 2018 at 7:00 PM




1. PROGRAM: “There's More to Photography Than Meets The Eye!" by Kathy Thalman. Learning photography is more than just knowing how to adjust your camera settings and understanding how to capture a correctly exposed photo. It also requires perspective, learning to create 3-dimensional images from a 2-dimensional format. You also must understand composition, using lines, lighting, and camera manipulation to create the shot you have imagined and draw the viewer into the scene created by the photograph. Kathy began her interest in photography by working with professional photographers in front of the lens. She has extensive experience working with models, athletes, National and international marketing personnel and advertisers. More than 20 years of photo styling and directing in the commercial field has helped her become a talented photographer and is sure to provide you with a new and possibly different perspective that can be applied to your own style of photography. Kathy has recently moved here and brings fresh new ideas from her exceptional career, so you’ll sure want to see this.

2. PHOTO CHALLENGE: - There will be a photo challenge at the upcoming meeting.

The winner of the last Photo Challenge was Mitch Meador.

-----------DUES-----------


You do not have to pay dues or have a membership card to attend regular monthly meetings. Everyone is welcome. Meetings are free and open to the public without cost or obligation.

However, many great benefits are available to those who pay dues. Membership cards will be issued to dues-paid members and are required to: borrow library items, borrow equipment, attend free special workshops, attend free field trips, display in the WWPS tent at the AFA Festival, use our matting/framing room and free supplies, etc.

Dues are due in January of each year- Individual-$10, family-$15, plus we ask that you volunteer at least 10 hours each year to help with our club events. Your volunteering earns funding for our club, and that's how we are able to keep dues so low!

Returning items: Do not wait until the next meeting to return items. Use our 24-hour drop box, located in the mail slot in the garage door at 323 NW 35th st., one block north of Comanche County Hospital on 35th st.



----------- OTHER INFORMATION -----------

Volunteering is the price we all pay to enjoy the benefits of WWPS, so please pitch in and help

We need YOU to help make presentations to clubs, civic groups, schools, churches, etc. You can use our pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation "Tips for Taking Great Photos". It's really simple to do.

If you make a presentation, display your photographs anywhere, teach a class to one or more people, or anything similar, let us know because our club gets funding for presentations done by our members. Contact a WWPS officer for more info.
