GREETINGS: Central Florida Chapter Members,

CHAPTER NEWS FOR THE 2020-2021 SEASON:

Fellow Florida Central Chapter members,


NOTICE

Dear Chapter Members:

We have set our meeting schedule for the 2020 / 2021 PSA year.

Hopefully, the Coronavirus will have eased and our plans will not have to be altered.  We will just have to be flexible.

Please save these dates:

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 – Bok Tower Gardens, Lake Wales, FL

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 – Myakka River State Park, Sarasota, FL

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 – St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, St. Augustine, FL.  This will require a one or two nights stay for most of us.  I know that some of us will want to spend an extra morning or evening in the park and others may want to do additional photographing in the area.  When we get closer to the dates, I will send hotel information.

I’ll advise meet up times and specific information well enough in advance so that you can make your plans.

It will be good to be able to get together again in November.

Regards,
Jim Mahoney, APSA, EPSA
Chapter Chairman

To the Florida Central Chapter members,

It is important for our chapter to grow. Two things need to happen, new blood in the Chapter, ,interesting photo outings and programs. To accomplish that total goal we arranged a diverse shoot to be completed over a ten day period. Twelve PSA members participated, including five guests. The participants chose to shoot the venues that interested them. Some shot for two or three days others for six days, Lynn Thompson and I did the whole ten days. This gathering was responsible for two new members, Elena McTighe, FPSA and Lynn Thompson, FPSA. The group met new friends, discussed photo tips and enjoyed many good meals together and many photographed areas seen for the first time. From the initial input this experience was enjoyed by all.
Respectfully submitted,


Erik Rosengren, FPSA, PPSA

 

 

2020 CENTRAL FLORIDA CHAPTER SHOWCASE IMAGES


As a Chapter member, you can now have a personal gallery on the PSA website that is linked to our Chapterís main page.

To create a gallery, you are asked to furnish three things; a portrait of yourself, a biography of approximately 250 words (donít be modest) and six images.  The portrait and images should be sized at a maximum 1024 pixels horizontally and 768 pixels vertically.  These items will be used to create your gallery page.  These pages should be kept fresh by changing photos every three months.

Setting up the galleries is easy.  Go to: www.psa-photo.org/member-galleries/get-chapter-member-entry.php     Once there, you can upload your images and type your biography.

The system to do this is already in place and galleries can be set up now.  Please allow two days for the galleries to be posted from the time that they are submitted.

Jim Mahoney, APSA, EPSA
