Mid-Michigan Photography Club January 2021 Updates

February Virtual Meeting

An online meeting of the Mid-Michigan Photography Club is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday February 3, 2020.  This will be a meeting focused on Black and White photography. The topic fits with the photo challenge themes for January and February. We will have demonstrations of taking the image directly in Black and White and several techniques to process color images as Black and White. MMPC members and guests are invited to share black and white images that and techniques they are willing to talk about with club members. During the Zoom meeting, participants will share their screens to display the images that they bring to talk about. If you are willing to share images, but are uncomfortable sharing your screen on Zoom, you can send the images to us at mmpclansing@gmail.com so that we can display them during the meeting. MMPC will send the online meeting information by email the Monday before the event. The online meeting information will also be posted on the MMPC Facebook Group.

MMPC has been informed that First Presbyterian Church plans to reevaluate use of the church when the current Executive Order is changed. The church does not plan to allow outside use of facilities until after the first of the year. The MMPC Board decided to hold virtual meetings because of the restriction on group activities under current health orders, the uncertainty of plans for activities at First Presbyterian Church, and our concern to prevent transmission of the coronavirus and to protect the safety of MMPC members.
