August 17 Members Choice Meeting

Don’t forget that our next meeting is a Member’s Choice presentation night. If you’ve never done one for the club, it’s easy. Simply put 25 or 26 pictures on a CD or thumbdrive and we’ll show the images/slideshows on the 17th. Let’s see some of your recent work. If you want a little extra challenge, you can set up your photos to the “Alphabet Soup” style in which each photo corresponds to a letter of the alphabet.

You can also dropbox a folder to me at brandonhirtphoto@hotmail.com
