Program Night, Tuesday May 26th

Our Program Night this week, Tuesday May 26, 2015 will be 2 bodies of work by club members.  Steve Schuenke will present the first one based on his floral macro series that will include visual aids and tips.  Barry Armer will present the second body of work.

There are several definitions for 'Body of Work', but they can generally be described as a collection of images that have a cohesive theme.

The meeting starts with refreshments provided by the club and general chit chat at 7:00pm.  The program will start at 7:30pm.  We look forward to all members and visitors attending.  We meet at Bay Area Unitarian Universalist Church (BAUUC), 17503 El Camino Real, 77058

2015 Assignments and Open Entries

Also remember that in 2015 we will be scoring the Open entries as well and awarding a prize at the end of the year.  

As we announced in our meeting in August, we are looking to expand our pool of judges next year.  There are no specific qualifications except that you would need to go through a process of learning the judging criteria and Honors Night protocols.  Following that you will want to sit in on 1 or 2 sessions judging off the record.  Once you are comfortable, you can join the action.  

Let me know if you are interested in judging.  We need the help.

Color Scheme Designer

There was some discussion at our December 5 meeting about the upcoming assignment “complementary colors” for January. Steve Schuenke mentioned a web-based tool called Color Scheme Designer, an interactive color wheel. Below is the link to the web site along with a tutorial on complementary colors where it is used on Phlearn.
Enjoy.

How well do you see color?

Take this fun online X-Rite color challenge to test your color acuity.  I'll tell you now that I scored a 14; a lower number being better.  It does take a few minutes to complete the challenge, but I think you will find it interesting.  Shoot me an email with a screenshot of your results and I'll post a small spreadsheet of all our results when I've collected enough of them.  I'll leave out any personal data or names, only collecting the results from x number of people.
