ADDED FEATURE: "What I did on my Summer Vacation." After this meeting's critique, we'll have some extra time to chat about recent travel photography adventures (even if only as far as you own backyard). Let's have fun talking about everything from what gear you use, unusual experiences, special challenges, or perhaps some new places you can recommend that we visit to make great images. It's not required but you can bring a few photos on a jump drive (about 5) if you would like to show us where you've been.

Harford County Photography Group (HCPG)
The September meeting of HCPG takes place on Wednesday, September 12, at 6:30 p.m. Les Picker will present, and the topic is "Displaying your Photographic Art." Preparing and displaying your work can be as easy or as complicated as you want it to be. If your photo is destined for a frame on your desk at work, Les’ presentation is not for you. There are plenty of options available to take care of this need. On the other hand, if you have a photograph that you have been itching to get on the wall, whether it be in your home, office, or an art gallery, Les’ presentation should help orient you in the world of mounting and display. There is a $5 admission fee, and we recommended that you sign up through to ensure seating is available.

NIH Camera Club
Tuesday, September 11 at 7:00 pm is our first meeting of the year. Join us at 6:30 for a social gathering. The month, David Blecman, Negative Positive, is presenting "What's in My Bag?" What does a professional photographer carry in his camera bag for a photo shoot?  Afterwards, he will critique digital photographs submitted by our members. He'll show us, using some of the entries, how to make easy adjustments to improve the image. You must be a member of NIHCC to participate in the critique.
