WELCOME

The next meeting of the Nature Photographers of the Pacific Northwest will be November 1, 2014.  Location and speaker info will be posted here as it becomes available.

Our April 5, 2014 Spring meeting at the beautiful Corbet Theatre in Centralia, WA was a tremendous success.   The invited speaker was Adam Jones, under the generous sponsorship of CANON.  He gave two engaging presentations and taught us some excellent techniques to improve our nature photography.  Here are three articles Adam wrote regarding the flash techniques that he taught on during his afternoon session.

Spring meeting stats: There were close to 300 members in attendance.   A record 244 images were submitted for the Digital Competition and 75 for the Print Competition.  Advance Camera was on hand to clean 62 camera sensors and do about 45 firmware upgrades.  On top of all that, we ate through 27 dozen donuts, 75 pounds of fruit, and many gallons of coffee!

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all the volunteers who made the meeting  a great success.  We’d especially like to thank Bob and Suzanne Love who have set up the coffee and tea for each of our meetings over the past three years.  They have retired as of this meeting and will be greatly missed.

Hope you all had a great time, and we’ll see you next fall!

A SPECIAL THANKS TO CANON AND
THE OUTDOOR CLUB OF CENTRALIA COLLEGE
