Summer Print Challenge!
Over the summer, shoot for the subject Windows and Doors and bring one print to the first meeting on Sept 8th (try to get it there by 6:45 pm). 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 maker of the highest scoring print wins a free membership in the camera club for 2014-15!

Mon Sept 8 - 7 PM
Welcome Back! We'll start with an introduction to the Portland Camera Club and our activities, then move on to the Summer Print Challenge. Everyone may submit one print on the subject of Windows and Doors. Please try to bring your print not later than 6:45. If you have any questions about how to prepare your print, click here for PCC rules for prints.
