PPC May PROGRAM
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 
 
7:00 PM
 
Location: Science & Technology Building
# 70 on ESU Map
 

Bring your camera and take some shots before the meeting!

 

In May we will be photographing around the ESU before the meeting
from 6:00 till the meeting starts at 7:00.  Each person should produce 
five to ten photos taken around the campus just before the or 
on the way to the meeting for those who can not get there early. 
The images will be reviewed at the meeting with comments.

Then we will come back and view the photos.

If you want suggestions on how to improve your images ask away.

Our more experienced members are always happy to give good 
pointers for improvement.

 

This is a Rain or Shine assignment;

So bring umbrellas or other rain protection if necessary.

 

If you can’t take photos before the meeting please take some images a day 
or so before the meeting so everyone has some images of Spring to share.

 

We ask that everyone have their camera card completely free of

any photos other than the ones taken just before the meeting.
