January/February 2019 MMPC Announcements

MMPC Gallery Show Reception and Take-Down

The annual MMPC Gallery Show is now in place at Riverview Church – Holt Venue. The show will be in place through January 25, 2019. Please feel free to stop by Riverview Church, 3585 E Willoughby Rd, Holt, MI to view the work of MMPC members. A reception was not scheduled in November because the opening was the date of Silver Bells. Based on requests from members, a reception has been scheduled for Friday, January 25, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Exhibitors may take down their photos following the reception.

February Meeting

Bring your camera, tripod, and macro lens (if you have one) to the February MMPC meeting on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 510 W Ottawa St, Lansing, MI. Woody from the Camera Shop will setup tabletop photography stations for us to shoot, including a water drop station. This should be a fun and productive meeting. We will also select the Monthly Challenge drawing winner for 2018 at the February meeting.

The theme for the next Big Cookie competition, March 2019, is Trains. Please consider sharing your photos during the Pic and Share. Contact any MMPC board member or email to mmpclansing@gmail.com for more information.

MMPC Photo Challenge

Thanks to all who have contributed to the MMPC Photo Challenge. The January 2019 theme is Cabin Fever. A gallery of the photos is on the web site at http://mmphotoclub.net/monthly-challenge/. If you do not use the Facebook group, send your entry by email to mmpclansing@gmail.com so that we can post it to the Facebook page. Discussion of the photos, beyond simply liking the picture, is encouraged. Note that the rules for the reward drawing have changed. To encourage participation and to not penalize a member that was unable to post in a given month, each member that posts in a month will receive a ticket in the gift card drawing. A member that posts in all 12 months will have 12 tickets in the drawing. Upcoming themes for the photo challenge are:

  • January 2019 – Cabin Fever
  • February 2019 – Low Perspective
  • March 2019 – Bridges
  • April 2019 – Bokeh
  • May 2019 – Black and White
  • June 2019 – Flag(s)
