December Meeting

The December meeting will be held on Thursday the 18th from 7-8:30 pm in the Community Room of the Lyndon House. This is our annual BBQ & pot luck dinner for paid members and their guests. If you have not already signed up then please R.S.V.P. to Judy Glenn (jglennpacs@yahoo.com) no later than December 11th. You are allowed to bring one guest. APG will provide meat, drinks, and utensils and those attending need to bring a side dish and/or dessert.

There is no Creative Challenge, but please bring your five favorite family-friendly images from 2014 so we can loop them during the dinner. If you’re participating, you can bring your photos on a flash drive or email them the day before the meeting to athenspg@gmail.com. 1024 pixels on the longest is sufficient. Please, no more than 2048 on the longest side.

Preview of Coming Attractions

Our meeting on January 15th will feature Bruce Barker of Athens Art and Frame speaking about the best ways to mount, mat, and frame your photos, as well as the services his shops offer for printing, framing, scanning, etc.

For our February 19th meeting, Paul Boeker will demonstrate and discuss the work he and others do in the field of “Antique Photography.” No, NOT taking pictures of antiques, but using ancient cameras with the photographic processes used 100+ years ago. During the meeting, Paul will shoot and wet-process a photo using the same techniques used for those portraits of your grandparents and great-grandparents!
