Patti Sampson, Secretary

The June Linn Area Photo Club monthly meeting took place at Wickiup Learning Center on June 17, 2018.

President Rick Young asked for members’ vote on speakers for our annual workshop next year. The option preferred was a speaker on photographing animals.

President Rick Young announced the following upcoming meetings:

July – Rae Lowenberg, a photo shoot Edward Weston inspired.

August – Doug Shaffer, On/Off/In Camera Flash.

September – Bob Randklev, Smart Phone Photography.

October – Ken Boardrow, Mounting and Matting.

November – Radim Schreiber,Lightening Bugs.

Our speaker this month was Caleb Howard on Drone Aerial Photography. After a presentation on types of drones and how he uses his drone in his commercial business, Caleb took members outside to demonstrate his drone.

The contest this month was square format. First place was Pam Olson, second place was Rick Young and third place was Cyd Graft.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
