Please join us on 7:30pm Wednesday, April 15, in the upstairs Education Classroom of the Natural History Museum.

Our speaker tomorrow night will be Bill Van Antwerp, giving a presentation on “Still Photos Without Strobes” (or, “taking pictures the way the video guys do it”).

PLEASE REMEMBER that our meeting room location has changed! Last time Leslie put lots of big signs with arrows everywhere (THANKS Leslie!), and the directions are also posted on our meetings page.

Meeting Announcements

We also had an excellent presentation by Jack Connick of Optical Ocean Sales - make sure you check out their Resource Center for articles and handbooks, including the one that he presented last night on shooting close focus wide angle.

Leslie Harris also gave us a preview of a very cool crustacean ID book. The electronic version has all kinds of neat features; you can download it from the iTunes store if you have a Mac, or purchase a Windows version from their Facebook page.

There will be NO MEETING IN MARCH, but that just gives you extra time to prepare your minicomp entries for April, when the topic will be "Ugly." Go ahead and submit your entries anytime between now and then!
