Stag and Swan Competition Results

Greetings Fellow Shutter Bugs

Last night was the Stag and Swan judging night in Stratford. I would like to thank Stratford for hosting this year. It was great to see the entries from both clubs and the judges were generous with feed back. There was good turnout to the event from our club.

Now the big question how did we do??? We did extremely well. Stratford has some catching up to do. In other words we won.
So I would like to thank everyone that posted pictures and would like to thank all of the members that were able to go to Stratford and support our club.

Keep up the good work every one.

Our next meeting will be discussing the pictures taken at the last two workshops.

Hope everyone enjoyed Monday evening, I would like to thank Doug, Julie Tina and Kevin for bringing their displays. Looking forward to seeing everyone on March 20th.

The Six Elements of an Effective Presentation

Recently I constructed a portfolio of images of cenotaphs and Canadian War Cemeteries for my uncle Ken Collett in Regina. Some of those images are on exhibit at the Second Cup cafe on Phillip St and University in Waterloo.

It's a real challenge to create a portfolio. What does one include? Does it have a theme? If so, what is it (or should be)? How many images should be in it? A couple of years ago I had the privilege of having my photographs reviewed at the Elevator Gallery in Toronto by two well-known photographers of today, Michael Smith and Les MacLean. Both reviews were good feedback - but as one might anticipate, somewhat contradictory!

Ethan Meleg

Congratulations to whoever engaged Ethan Meleg to speak to the club. He was informative, entertaining, personable and motivational. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
