Reminder: Monthly Meeting This Sunday

For Sale – Canon Printers

Cedar Rapids Help Portrait will have 4-5 Canon Pixma Pro 10 printers for sale on Sunday.  These printers were used in 2014 and 2015 for the Help Portrait events.   So they have been used twice in two years.  Each printer has an estimated 150 prints of usage, so they are like brand new.    They retail for about $600, and we will be offering them for $200.   So bring your check or cash if you have an interest in one of these fine printers.   We will also have extra ink available for these printers.


Meeting Theme:  Photo Feedback

If you have a photo or two you want feedback on, bring it to the meeting.  Small teams will review your photograph(s) and provide feedback in three areas: Technical Aspects, Photo Composition and Overall Impression.   Each team  (3-4 members) will provide a score in these three areas as well as comments of what they liked best and what they might change to make the photo better.

Towards the end of the meeting, each Team will then select one of their photo critiques and do an oral review of that photo to the Club.

So if you have a photo or two you entered into one of the LAPC Contests, the State Fair, a county fair, a local photo contest, or just a photo you want to print and hang on the wall at home… and you want some help/feedback…. this is your opportunity.

Photos need to be printed at least 8″ on the shortest side.  B&W or color.   Any topic (that fits Club rules).   Enhanced or not.
