Summer Print Challenge
This summer's Print Challenge is Photographer's Choice (as voted on by the club). Shoot any subject you want and bring in one print to the first meeting in September. All prints will be displayed and voted on by anyone present before the meeting and during the break. After the break, the winner will be announced, and we will have an informal critique session on the winner and other prints as time allows. The print with the most votes will win a year's free membership in the club. Prospective new members are encouraged to participate.
