Next Wednesday, September 7, the Photographic Frontiers Study Group will resume its first Wednesday of the month meetings. For this occasion, Ilene Meyers will discuss the process of printing as well as different results obtained by using different papers. In addition, she will present examples of prints made on different papers for us to examine and discuss.
Remember to bring photos that you’d like to talk about and perhaps get suggestions on. One of the major purposes of the study group is, after all, for us to help each other in our quests to create great photographs.
Next Wednesday’s meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Boulder Digital Arts, 1600 Range Street, Suite 100, Boulder, CO, 80301
Just a reminder: There will be no Photographic Frontiers Study Group meeting this evening, Wednesday, July 6, 2016. There will also be no meeting of the group in August. We will return to our regular schedule of meetings, on the first Wednesday of the month, on September 7.
Four photographers, including Flatirons Photo Club members Dan Joder, Rosa Fuste Escude, and Kirk Fry as well as Deb Cochrane are currently Featured Artists at Boulder Digital Arts. They invite you to join them at their opening-reception this Friday, July 8, from 5 to 7 p.m. The event will include food and beverages as well as great conversation and will take place at Boulder Digital Arts, 1600 Range St. Suite 100 (on the northeast corner of Range Street and Arapahoe Avenue), Boulder.
I’ve just finalized arrangements for tickets to the Boulder County Bombers’ dual bout this Saturday, June 28. If we have a group of 10 or more when we arrive at the ticket table, tickets will be $10 each. Otherwise, we will pay the regular price of $15 each (so bring $15, just in case). Either way it will be well worth it: The sport is great, as are the photo and video ops. In addition, the Bombers will be playing a double header. The Bombers’ B team (I’ve seen them compete; it’s a gas), aka The Bombshells, will defeat (okay, I’m hoping at this point) the South Side Derby Dames starting at 6 pm. In the second bout, the Bombers’ A team, the All Stars, will overwhelm (ditto) the Denver Roller Dolls Bruising Altitude.
There will be food from Georgia Boys BBQ and beer from 300 Suns, Bootstrap and Left Hand as well as Nina’s Cocktails margaritas and rum from Tesouro Distillery.
Doors open at 5:30, general admission. Though we’ll be free to move around during the bouts, to get good seats we will meet outside the hall entrance at 5:30, when admittance begins. Location: Boulder County Fairgrounds, 9595 Nelson Road, Longmont, CO. Park in the dirt parking lot in front of the large building named Boulder County Fairgrounds Park. When you face that building, the building hosting the bouts is directly to your right, it’s called the Exhibit (or Exhibition) Hall. In this photo, it’s the building in the lower center: https://www.bouldercounty.org/PublishingImages/fg1.jpg.
I hope to see lots of you there. As I say, women’s roller derby is a terrific sport and a great photo op.

Tonight, 04/02/14, Murth Murthy will give a presentation on “Tips and techniques in Photoshop that are hidden and rarely known to users.” In case you’re not familiar with Murth, he has a deep and broad understanding of Photoshop. This talk is sure to be insightful and very useful.
Our 2013 FPC Member Show has been rescheduled from last month to Thursday, October 10. We will meet in the hall that we have been using for the previous several months. The presentation will be an exciting evening providing a glimpse into the various approaches that our members display to photography. Each of 10 members will have 10 minutes to present a slide show of their recent work and answer a few questions. We look forward to the following presentations:
Here is the list of member presenters who are having slide shows in September:
•Russ & Gail Dohrmann
•Maria Rosa Fuste
•Cary Wolfson (probably)
. Peter Baudurian
My apologies to anyone who tried to go to the Denver Botanic Gardens today and wasn’t able to make it. Unfortunately, I was unaware of the marathon when I chose the date. After being stuck in traffic for an hour and a half, while trying several different approaches, I finally gave up. (I’ve now downloaded a traffic app to my phone.)
Again, many apologies for the mixup. I hope people didn’t waste too much time trying to get to the Gardens.

Flatirons Photo Club will have a field trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens this Saturday, September 22. The gardens open at 9 AM, so we will meet at the entrance at 1007 York St. at that time. Admission for non-members (of the Botanic Gardens, not the photo club) is $12.50 for adults, $9.50 for seniors (65+). If there are 10 or more non-members (members enter for free and won’t be part of the group), they will be charged a reduced, group fee of $10.50 for adults, $8.00 for seniors. Whoever is there at 9 AM can be part of the reduced-fee group. N.B. To be part of this group, you will have to bring cash, exact amount, to give to the person who will make payment, which must be made for the entire group at one time.
The gardens contain a conservatory as well as many opportunities outdoors even in rain or fog, so the field trip will occur rain or shine, though the forecast calls for superb weather. In addition, the garden has a cafe with good food and drinks at reasonable prices.
Hope to see lots of you there.
Thomas Walsh, Flatirons Photo Club President
