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


Next Meeting:-February 13, 2020 at 7:00 PM




1. PROGRAM: "UNDERSTANDING THE FEATURES, SETTINGS, AND MYSTERIES OF DIGITAL CAMERAS" by Clem Wehner

This two-part class (February and March 2020) is a comprehensive review of digital cameras for the photographer who wants to know how to best use all the capabilities of their camera. Want to know what all those dials, buttons, and menus do? Clem will present many tips and techniques for great photography and de-mystify topics such as: ISO; image quality and size settings; choosing focus points, white balance; artistic features like color density, tone, and sharpness; using automatic and manual exposure modes; pre-programmed exposure settings; using aperture and shutter priority modes, pre-focus techniques; manual focus modes; metering modes such as spot, matrix, and center-weighted metering, using live view, image stabilization, and much more. This class will turn the intimidating terminology of digital photography into familiar and usable knowledge. Like carpenters, photographers must know their tools to be skilled at their craft. This is the class that does it! (For the most benefit, bring your instruction manual and camera).

3. The last winner of the photo challenge was Nancy Alexander with her photo of an eagle

--------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.
