November Meeting Summary

I want to thank all the membership for their support of the club over the 2017 year and hope to see you all again in 2018.  

We had a very good end of year meeting last night and I want to thank everyone who brought a little something for snacks.  As happens, there was more food than there was appetite and the folks at Inn From The Cold really appreciated the donation of what we had left.  A very nice part of Giving Tuesday.

We had a tutorial on posing real people and I am very grateful to those members who agreed to come up and be our models for the posing exercise.  A huge thanks to Sheila, Lynda, Shelley, Douglas, Gordon, Lou and Paul.

Then we did our Show Selects review.  I have attached a PDF of that part of the night that you can download right here.

We closed with our review of the submissions for the November themes.

The themes for December - January are HOLIDAY JOY and RISING TO THE CHALLENGE

February Meeting Summary

 What's wrong with this image?  A gold star to the first person who posts on the Google Plus page.  HINT : Darren Gahan made note of the error very recently in one of his posts.  Darren, you know the answer, so you are graciously excluded from this bit of silliness!

Tutorials

Ahmad El-Farram did a fabulous job presenting on how to use Facebook Ads to increase engagement for the potential clients that you may have.  It was a well-researched presentation and engendered a great discussion.

We also covered a process on pricing your work.  I will post on Google Plus when the Tool is available for purchase and where to get it for all those who have already expressed interest.
