Fix My Pic Sample for September

In order to encourage members to tune up their editing skills, the Club has started a new program.  Download the picture here, edit it any way you want and send one version of your final image to jlwksc@rogers.com.  Prior to sending, rename the image to:

Forest by (your name).jpg

We will show all of the images at the following meeting and we will also present the version of the photographer. 

No rules, edit it any way you want, and submit one image to the email address above.

Ontario PPOC New Members Event

Danielle Barabé-Bussières, who spoke at our April 5th meeting, has invited any interested club members to attend the New Members Reception of the Eastern Ontario Branch of the PPOC to be held September 5th from 7 until 9 PM at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata.

Danielle says:

Just want to ask if you could kindly inform your photo club members and people you know who might be interested of this event we are organizing. I will be present, as I am a member of the executive committee and would be thrilled to see some familiar and new faces. It is mostly an event to answer questions people might have regarding PPOC etc.

If you’re interested, go online to eventbrite and register for a free admission.
