imagesOur next meeting is Tue April 14th when we host guest speaker Jim White for his presentation: My 35 Year Career as a Filmmaker/Photographer.

For nearly 40 years Jim White has been a full time filmmaker and photographer, travelling throughout the world shooting film (now video and DSLR) and photography for large and small clients. After 19 years he closed his companies in the US and Ireland, released the team, who had been with him the entire time, and decided to work from his home studio in Kittery Point, ME. The question was, could he continue to make a living in a small market?

This presentation is free and open to the public. See our calendar listing for details.

We had an excellent meeting last night. Our thanks go out to Steve Frank for an interesting talk about printing photograph and Paul Hopkins for his demo on using the camera histogram. Please do consider using Steve’s local company Photosmith Imaging for any future printing jobs (photosmithimaging,com).

Welcome to our 3 new members Pam, Brian, and Sarah. They said they’d like to participate in the upcoming March 24th competition (rescheduled from January), so I’m opening this up for anyone to submit photos. If you haven’t participated in a competition yet (or lately), this is a good one to enter, because we will not be giving formal scores. We’re opening the floor to constructive comments from all members. If you already submitted photos, you can send new ones if you want, otherwise I’ll use what you already sent in January.

We have two categories – max of one photo per category per person, please:
1) Abstraction – our challenge theme – see our calendar entry for tips on what we’re looking for
2) Open – anything goes

Deadline for submissions is Sat Mar 21 at 11:00PM. The usual rules still apply – SCC members only, JPEG files only, max size 1024 pixels wide x 768 pixels high, send to – please read our submission rules if you are not familiar with them.

Join us for our next meeting on Tue March 10th when Steve Frank, owner of Photosmith in Dover, New Hampshire, will discuss the topic of printing photographs. As noted on their website, they are the “last man standing” when it comes to film processing. They’ve been in business for 30 years and can process both film and digital images. Steve will discuss the printing process, provide tips on how to prepare your digital images for the best prints, and show the wide variety of media that can be printed on today – from standard photographic papers, to canvas, metal, wood, and even calendars, mugs, and T-shirts. As always, this presentation is free and open to the public.
