March 2014 Meeting

We will be meeting this coming Thursday (the 20th) at the usual time and place (i.e. 7 PM at the Jaffery Civic Center).

There are two items on the agenda for this month...

  1. A live demonstration of cyanotype printing.

    Frank Gorga will coat paper with cyanotype chemistry, expose the paper using a digitally-made 8"x10" negative and a UV light source and, finally, develop the final image. All right before your very eyes!!!!

  2. Book sharing

    Do you have a favorite photography book... or two... or three?! It could be a "how to" book or a book of photographs that inspire you. If so, bring them along to this meeting and tell folks about them... both the strong points and the weak points.

    Jot the author and title down on a piece of paper, we'll collect those and publish a list of them here on the club website.

As always, if you want to show some prints bring them along. If you want to show digital images, please let Frank know a couple of days ahead of time so that we can have the equipment present and set up.

Meeting Reminder!

With the start of a new camera club season, we are going to try to use the Monadnock Camera Club blog as our primary web presence.

Our first meeting for the season is coming right up (next Thursday, 19 Sept.). Please consider bringing a friend (prospective new member) along!

The main event for the evening is "Members Night"... each member is encouraged to bring ten or twelve photographs (either prints or digital files) to share with the group.

Additionally, we will be picking prints (both color and black and white) for the NECCC fall competitions. The subject matter for these prints is "open".

Also, Chuck will be collecting your dues ($25). He accepts either cash or check. 

Lastly, refreshments will be served.
