(So sorry we didn't find out until the exhibit was over.) To see all the beautiful entries that were submitted, along with the list of those that were juried in, including Linda's two photos ("Tranquility" and "The Swollen Flint"), please click here.

July 2014 Meeting

The West Central Georgia Shutterbugs are proud to have Tom Vadnais speak at their Tuesday, July 8th meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of Hightower Memorial Library, located at 800 West Gordon Street (across the street from Upson Regional Medical Center) in Thomaston. The title of his program will be “Things to Consider when Post-Processing.” When you want to move beyond snapshots, you get to experience one of the best parts of digital photography: the opportunity to easily enhance your photographs in the computer. Your post-processing techniques can be simple or complex. But more important than learning techniques is figuring out what and why changes might be needed. Tom will present an overview of what you can do, and how you can evaluate your images, so you can make the best use of your post-processing time.

Photographers of all skill levels are invited to attend. There is no admission fee.
