*ONLINE* General Meeting : February 2021

This month's General Members meeting will be something new for us: We will try our hand at meeting on Zoom.

Unlike our in-person meetings, this one will be open to members only until we see how popular this format is and we get the hang of running things online. The link to the meeting will be sent to members from our email system.

Tonight's presentation: Karl Ehlers, Art Director at WOOD magazine, shows us how to take better photos of your woodworking projects with your smartphone.

Your smartphone is not only the best high-resolution camera you're likely to have in your pocket, it might be the best camera you own!

Karl shares some great ways to use your phone's camera to make your projects look their best when you share them online, which we all seem to be doing much more often lately.

After you practice these techniques on your woodwork, send us some of your photos for show and tell!

The presentation for tonight is pre-recorded, but Karl will be available after the showing for a live Q&A session.
