"Our presenter on March 14 will be Lisa Langell whom I know many of you know from past years' presentations. Her program this time around will be on High Key Photography and will offer members an opportunity to go beyond the presentation by participating in a one day in-depth workshop to be held on Saturday, March 16. The workshop will expand upon Thursday's presentation and offer a guided hands-on learning experience for participants.
The Saturday instructional sessions will include both classroom work which will be held in our regular meeting room and an in-the-field photography experience. I've included Lisa's description of her presentation and workshop along with a link with which to register for the workshop at a discounted early bird rate. Deadline for the discounted rate is February 28 so if interested please act quickly." (Ken Duquaine)
