SPRING 2013 MEETING - OUR 25th MEETING!
NATURE PHOTOGRAPHERS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
April 6, 2013 (Saturday) 10 AM to 5 PM
University of Oregon in Eugene, OR
Guest Speaker: Frans Lanting
Our spring meeting will be April 6 at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR. We will open the doors at 8:30 AM, and the program will begin at 10 AM.
The invited speaker will be Frans Lanting. Frans has been hailed as one of the great nature photographers of our time. His influential work appears in books, magazines, and exhibitions around the world. A former director of photography at National Geographic has said "He has the mind of a scientist, the heart of a hunter, and the eyes of a poet."
Frans' morning presentation is entitled "Eye to Eye with Life" and his afternoon presentation is "Cheetahs on the Run" (See the Nov. 2012 issue of the National Geographic). Treat yourself to Frans' website at www.lanting.com.
Do bring your digital camera bodies for sensor cleanings at a bargain price by Advanced Camera.
A special thanks to our cosponsor, the Environmental Studies Program of the University of Oregon.
The projected image competition will be exclusively digital. Send a maximum of three digital files as email attachments, each smaller than 3 MB in size, to NPPNW.email@example.com. Include text in your email message that describes the attachments. Your digital files must be received no later than Friday, March 29.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS FOR DIGITAL PHOTO SUBMISSIONS: The file names for submitted images must have the format: PhotoTitle_by_PhotographerName_X.jpg, where “PhotoTitle” is your title for the photo, “PhotographerName” is your name, and X is a 1-character code of P, S or W for Plantlife, Scenic or Wildlife, respectively.
In addition, participants are encouraged to bring a maximum of two prints. The prints may be matted but not framed. The total external dimensions (including mat) must not exceed 48 inches (length + width). The categories for the print competitions are the same as those for the projected images. We will again use a “limited hand of man” rule. Any man made object in the entry should not be a major or significant portion of the image.
