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

Next Meeting:-October 10, 2019 at 7:00 PM

1. PROGRAM:“How to Set up and Take Great Portraits” by Clem and Fran Wehner
It doesn’t matter what your interest in photography, everyone takes photographs of people--if nowhere else, at family gatherings, holidays, and special events.  

Clem and Fran will demonstrate professional techniques from their years of operating a portrait studio to get the best possible images.  You’ll learn about lighting angles, lighting ratios, metering, and camera placement. Fran will teach about posing, clothing, do’s and don’ts of portraiture, photos of singles, couples, and groups; and much more. There’s a big difference between a portrait and a snapshot.  Come learn how to do it right.

BONUS: Clem will demonstrate how to set up all the equipment needed for a portrait session including, light stands, background, camera tripod, posing stools, and the studio lights. In addition he will explain all the camera settings needed for portrait photography. This is the information you need if you will be working at the Gala photo booth, as the photo studio volunteers will be setting up everything themselves this year.

This meeting’s program will be a complete course in the whole process of setting up for and taking portraits. Whether you are working at the Gala photo booth or just taking family photos during the holidays, this program is for you.

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

4. The last winner of the photo challenge was Corinna Bontly

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!

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.
