An Evening with Stuart Pearl 4/25

What a night this will be!! Join us in the Wilson Club Room at 8pm for an evening with Stuart Pearl when he gives his presentation "Art & Illumination for Better Photography." He will show examples of his own photography and how he tries to incorporate techniques from many of the master painters who came before us. Join us tonight for a terrific presentation from one of the Masters himself!!

You Be The Judge Continues Monday 4/28

The second half of training for everyone that participated last Monday in YOU BE THE JUDGE will continue next Monday 4/28. Since local photographic societies and camera clubs are in need of good competition judges who can objectively evaluate photographic works and provide thoughtful and encouraging critiques, CPS is offering two nights of competition judge training given by veteran photographic judges and avid lifetime photographers. We hope to see all 45 of you that attended on the 21st once again on April 28th at 7pm to complete your competition judge training.

Your First Ever Image Free For All!!

Bring 1 to 2 of your own images to share with EVERYONE in attendance. You can bring Matted Photos or a Flash Drive is fine. No Scoring!! Just Conversation!! We will have 3 senior CPS members picked out to give their advice on each image and everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to add to the discussion of any or all of the images because this is your Image Free For All!!
This is another way where CPS offers an experience to its members to give them the opportunity to continue to learn about how they can become a better photographer!!
This event is free and open to all!! You asked for this! If we have solid attendance, here's your chance to make this a quarterly event!!
