Our October 24th meeting brought out 62 members and 2 guests.

• President Carson Plant reminded everyone that the proper e-mail address to use when submitting CCC competition photos is gcstuarts@yahoo.ca (There’s an extra “s” at the end of Gavin’s name.)

• Carson announced that the auditor’s report from Dave Noordhoff found that our financial statement, as provided by Treasurer Reagan Smolders, is correct.

• Carson Plant introduced our Guest Speaker, Adam Harpula who presented his tutorial on Posing And Lighting. Adam gave us some tips on how to get our subjects to relax in front of the camera, general posing techniques, as well as off camera lighting, both with flash and continuous lights. Great job, Adam! We all learned something valuable tonight.
