ACES Calendar

2017-2018 Meetings and Activities

Meetings begin at 7:00 pm unless otherwise noted.

July 20 - 1st Competition - Program - Please enter up to 3 color and 3 monochrome images for a guest judge to evaluate on a 6 - 9 point system. Most judges give suggestions how to make your photo better. Those with 8.5 or 9 pts. on their photo will have an opportunity the following meeting to give fellow club members the full story of the photo including the meta data if available. At the website, go to “Competitions” then “How to Enter” so your images are ready for the judge and then “Judging” so you know how the point system works.

August 3 - Share a Picture and Presentation (Our presentation by fellow ACES member Jim Storms will be 20-minute/ 20 slide presentation on one of the many photographic adventures he has had.) We also have “Share a Photo” segment where YOU bring up to five images on a Thumb Drive in one folder with your name on the folder. (Not e-mailed as the website says.) Be at the meeting site at 6:30 and give your thumb drive to the projectionist, Jim Storms.
