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



09 July 2020, 7:00 PM - MONTHLY MEETING (via Zoom). This will be a regular meeting, but conducted online using Zoom. After some announcements and opportunity for comments by members, there will be a program.

PROGRAM: "How to Become a Great Photographer" by Clem Wehner. Give a monkey a camera and it can shoot 1 million pictures without ever getting better at it. So improving must be more than just taking lots of pictures. There must be deliberate evaluation of your own images and a method to cause improvement to happen. Clem will explain a step-by-step methodology to enable you to learn and improve most quickly and effectively. You'll discover exactly what to look for when critiquing your photography. You'll learn what elements make a great image and how to know if an image you took has them. You also learn how to apply what you discover when evaluating your work so you learn from your experience. It's not enough just to evaluate your photos, but you need to learn to take a better image the next time out. The great photographers did not get there by just taking a lot of pictures. They got better through a deliberate process--that's what this class is all about. Don't miss this one!

If not already on our mailing list and you want an invitation to the zoom program, send email to: WichitaWildlight@gmail.com


There WILL BE a photo challenge this month at the Zoom meeting. Just send any photo you took to: WichitaWildlight@gmail.com no later than July 7th. The theme is wild card- any subject. We’ll show the photos at the meeting. Send your photo as a .jpg, if possible.

July is our usual “ice cream social”. Since we are meeting online, you can bring ice cream if you want to!

--------SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS -----------



-----------DUES ARE DUE IN JANUARY-----------


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!



----------- LIBRARY -----------


The following people have library items overdue:

None, thank you!

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.
