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


Next Meeting:-November 7, 2019 at 7:00 PM



1. PROGRAM:“ How to check and micro adjust your camera lens" by Dave McGowen and Mike Bonanza

Ever feel as though you are using good picture taking technique, yet your images still look soft or out of focus? The problem may be that your camera–lens combination is front or back focusing. When we finally pluck up the courage to purchase an expensive lens, we expect them to be perfect right? Unfortunately, no matter how good the lens is, there are always going to be minor differences when we attach it to our specific camera. Often our camera bodies are made at a completely different time and usually in a completely different factory, so when we finally bring the two together there are often minor adjustments that we the user have to make to ensure we’re getting the best image possible from that specific lens. So regardless of whether our lens is new or old, or if our camera body is new or old, many will say fine-tuning your lens to your camera body is crucial. Join Mike Bonanza and Dave McGowen as they show you how to test the accuracy of your autofocus and, if necessary, make micro adjustments to your camera and improve the sharpness of your images.

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

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!

----------- 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.
