Main Meeting – September 2017

When: Tuesday September 26 @ 7:00pm
Where: Algonquin College, Perth Campus, Rm 104

Guest Speaker: Lorraine Fernando - “Painting with Light and Pixels”

Lorraine will share her approach to creating expressive images that are painterly and enigmatic. With each image she invites you to create your own story. In her work, she combines a variety of in-camera and post processing techniques. A self-confessed pixel-bender, she will speak about how she captures and then uncovers and highlights the image data in ways that take her images into surprising and unexpected directions.

Lorraine has photographed for 10 years and is mostly self-taught. She has explored a number of approaches and styles and her work now focuses on creating images that are subjective and that reflect her love for impressionist art. She also enjoys travel photography and capturing urban landscapes.

2) You may bring a guest to this meeting so that they can appreciate the talent and friendship that abounds at the LCCC.

Meeting Agenda

The final business meeting will include a summation of the year, the election of the Executive Officers and the announcement of the Special Interest Groups’ Co-ordinators for the coming season.

The submissions for the THEME - “CONFEDERATION” will be shown immediately following the business section of the meeting. Please ensure that your submission is sent to Robert Feduke no later than noon on Tuesday June 27th.

This will be followed by the break so that you may enjoy the sweet table and view the Photo Challenge submissions. You will have a leisurely opportunity to chat with your fellow photographers while enjoying a multiplicity of deserts.

Photo Challenge

There will be cards provided so that the members submitting photos for the Photo Challenge may write the title of their image and their name. These should be completed upon your arrival at 6:30 prior to the start of the meeting.

All photo submissions should be mounted on foamcore and/or in a mat so that they can be displayed to their best advantage.

Sweet Table

As in years past, munchies to share should be finger food and as well, sweets. We look forward to sharing the sweet submissions from all our excellent club bakers. Paper plates and napkins will be provided. Please bring the beverage of your choice, as long as it is non-alcoholic.

Until we meet again in September - Have a safe and happy summer and keep your cameras handy!
