LVPC Program Updates
(IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THE ENTIRE POST)
1) Due to a scheduling conflict on our part, the regularly scheduled LVPC Meeting on Thursday, November 15th featuring Ed Heaton as our speaker has been cancelled. The reason for this cancellation is that the opening reception for our club exhibit at the Allentown Jewish Community Center is also scheduled for Thursday, November 15. We hope that all club members will come out for the opening reception at the JCC. I have spoken to Ed Heaton and we will reschedule for after the New Year. Important Dates for this event: Monday, Nov. 12 – works should be dropped off from 9 am until noon., Thursday, Nov. 15th – Reception from 6:30 until 8 pm. Breakdown and pick-up of unsold works will be Thusday, Jan. 3rd from 3 to 5 pm.
2) The December meeting has been moved from its regularly scheduled third Thursday to Friday, December 14 to accommodate a special two-day event with our featured speaker Tony Sweet. Tony is a “Nikon Legend Behind the Lens”, a Lensbaby Guru and a charter member of Team Nik. Tony teaches and lectures throughout the U.S. and Canada as well as leading workshops across America, Canada and in Iceland. In addition, Tony has authored five books on fine art nature photography and four photography DVDs. The title of Tony’s presentation is “Portfolio Review and Elements of Design” – a 90 portfolio presentation with an emphasis on design elements and compositional techniques. Software optimization and various creative techniques will be discussed at length. Questions are encouraged throughout the presentation.
3) On Saturday, December 15, Tony will be leading a full-day workshop in Bethlehem. The exact location is yet to be finalized. The maximum number of participants in this one-day workshop will be topped at 20. The cost will be $175 for LVPC members and $200 for non-members. At this time we are taking registrations from both members and non-members. Non-members will be put on a separate “waiting” list until November 15. Registration from members will receive first consideration up until that date. If the Workshop fills by 11/15, others on the waiting list will be notified. If space remains, non-members will be admitted on a first come, first served basis. Tony’s workshops fill up extremely fast so don’t wait. If you want to be part of this experience (it can be an early holiday gift for yourself), send an e-mail to Ed Vatza at firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest. I will only take new names by e-mail. Registration and payment information will follow once I receive your e-mail.
