“How to Get that Merit Image” – Monday, January 16, 2017

Hi, All,

Our next meeting is not to be missed!  Paul Bernstein and Owen Kassimir will speak to us about getting that ‘WOW’ image for competition.  This is the first in a series of meetings with a followup critique of your images in February timed for the upcoming FocusNY Image Competition at the end of March.

Hope you all can make it.  Note that the date is one week later than our normal meeting due to a conflict with the PPA convention.  Also we are meeting a different venue for January, Mexican Radio Restaurant in Schenectady.

Happy New Year to you and your families,

Sherrie

Thanks to Paul Bernstein, our PPSNYS President for a wonderful presentation on seeing the Light.
Paul covered all aspects of seeing light and shadow. How best to take advantage of them for making all your images come to life.
