Meeting Agenda & Discussion:
Photo Show Planning Report: The Photo Show Committee met with the board earlier in the evening. Members will get information on acceptable photo sizes, matting, number of photos that can be submitted, and deadlines by the August club meeting and via email to all members.
Theme Competition
This month's theme was Travel. We've been getting so many photos that it was getting hard to get a clear winner, so members were asked to limit submissions to no more than two photos, which everyone did.  The winner was Dennis Filangeri. His photo was taken in Venice, Italy, with a Cannon SX50. Photoshop was used for post-photo processing. 

Next month's Theme is Black and White.
Techniques and Tips
·         Tech Time: Dennis gave a hands-on demonstration of matting technique.
·         Tips: 9 Quick Tips for Better Black & White Photos, by Jamie Windsor. The video is available on our website (under TUTORIALS).
Respectfully submitted, J Filangeri, Secretary
