Late Breaking News
•  The Annual FHPC Members Photo Exhibition is on display in the FH Community Center : As in the past 10 years or so, for the month of February 2018 we have filled the walls of the FH Community Center with 74 photographs taken by 23 of our members. The exhibition will be on display until Tuesday, February 27. This is the best opportunity of the year to see what the club is doing, and to see the level of achievement of the members in expressing their artistic talent in their photographs. So come walk the halls of the Community Center during normal open hours - no appointment or reservation needed. On Tuesday, February 6, there will be a reception for the exhibition and the photographers from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Community Center - the public is invited!.
• Fountain Hills Dark Sky Festival : Fountain Hills was recently certified as an International Dark Sky Community, and to celebrate FH’s new status, the Fountain Hills Dark Sky Association will be holding a Dark Sky Festival on April 21. As part of the activities being planned for that celebration there will be an Astronomical Photography Exhibition at the FHCC for the month of April, open to the general public and especially FH residents. In addition, on April 21, an Astrophoto Image Photography Contest with 2 highly experienced astrophotographer judges will select winning images from the images in the Exhibition. The FHPC has been invited, along with the participation of the Fountain Hills Astronomy Club, to manage the exhibit and the contest for the FH Dark Sky Association. Stay tuned for more details as the celebration day approaches. If you would like to be put on a list to receive updates as these plans evolve, please send an email to fhphotoclub@cox.net with the words ‘Dark Sky’ in the subject line.
• The Photo Club’s guest speaker for the month of February will be Beth Ruggiero-York, a well known Arizona Highways photographer and expert in astrophotography. The FHPC recognizes that the Dark Sky Celebration and the April Astrophoto Exhibition represents an ideal opportunity for photographers in general who have not done astrophotography to try out this exciting activity. The FHPC was fortunate to find a time slot on Beth’s heavy schedule for her to come to our regular February meeting and give a tutorial on astrophotography, so first timers can have 6 weeks to practice and prepare some astro images for submittal to the Dark Sky Photo Exhibition. The February meeting with Beth’s talk will be open to the general public, and will start at 6:00 PM at the FH Community Center.
• Bring Prints And Image Files : At the February meeting, we will continue the display and discussion of members' fine prints; please bring up to a MAXIMUM of 4 of your best prints for that meeting segment, along with a MAXIMUM of 6 jpegs of other images for the video projection segment of the meeting. The theme for the February jpeg image show is "previous FHPC meetups", so look back at your files and send in your best images! If you don't have any meetup pictures, please feel free to show anything that is legal and in good taste. Please send your files (jpegs,1200 (or more) pixels in the vertical dimension, sRGB color space) for digital projection to the club email address by attaching named image files to the email (put your name first, then the picture title, in the jpeg filenames).
