Digital Photography

Our new goal this year is to grow our membership, to improve our physical experience by meeting in person and adding field trips to our schedule. This is a big step forward since the Pandemic isolation.

 We have monthly assigned topics for members to participate and encourage everyone to bring in photo images to the meeting for a fun ‘Show and Tell’ session. We also add a digital photos presentation by showing photos from our members at our regular SIR Luncheon meetings at a Digital Photography Display Table.

For those of you who would like to join the group please sign up at the Display Table with your name, phone number, and email address to receive our regular communication emails with information detailing our activities and assignments.

Currently we meet at 10 am, on the second Friday of every month at:

Ygnacio Valley Library’s meeting room
2661 Oak Grove Road 
Walnut Creek, CA 94598

Chairman: Meng Horng
(309) 287-5654

Asst. Chairman: Dave Davis

Meeting Report, June 14

We had a nice meeting last Friday at the Ygnacio Valley Library. Here is what happened: 
8 members attended and 7 presented images on the topic “Close-up photos”.

Our next meeting at the library will be July 14, 2024, and the topic is “Creative Photos” which applies to any imagination and manipulation of your images. It should be a fun one

Our meeting is always a week ahead of our general SIR monthly meeting which gave us the disadvantage of passing the news of the month at the meeting. I have tried to move our photo group meeting to the 3rd week but unfortunately someone has that spot monthly so we are stuck in the 2nd week. No change of the date for our regular meeting.

Please also mark your date for our first group outing on July 19, 2024 at the Civic Park in Walnut Creek. There are many items that you can take photos of including taking pictures inside the Walnut Creek Library. (I talked to them, and they said no restrictions). Plus, we may use the facilities inside. I will mail out the detailed outing plan in 2 weeks.

Important: I need some photos from you so I can send 10-15/month for the luncheon photo slide show, plus I can print some of them for the display table. I ran out of photo materials already. You may send them (@4-5 at a time) to me at mengymc@gmail.com.

Books: If you have old photo books that you don’t need anymore could you bring them to the SIR Luncheon and put them at the display table for whoever like to look at or keep them? Thanks to Dick who donated 3 nice books. I will bring them to the meeting.
