Refocus That Please - by Bill Moll
This months program will be Club Competition Night, Anaglyph projection and View-Master hand viewers. The competition will include Realist format slides, digital slides (2800x1050, parallel view) and Holmes style cards. You have had 5 months to get some new images, so bring them on! We will also have the first anaglyph projection exhibit. This will not be part of the competition. To keep the number of projectors manageable, we will only project digital 1400x1050 images. The intention is to have images produced by the widest variety of methods.
The workshop will be View-Master hand viewers. I will bring a variety of viewers with reels. If you have a unique VM viewer, bring it to share. Also, VP Ralph has a large number of ideas to discuss for the current club year. He has more good ideas to discuss at this meeting than I have had for my entire reign as President it bodes well for the future!
The meeting is the 2nd Friday of this month October 12th. We will meet at at the Congregational Church @ 2676 Clairmont Road (about 1 1/2 blocks south of I-85) This is the Church up the winding road, through the woods. If you have any questions, call Bill Moll @ 706-859-7726.
We will meet at the Fortune Cookie in Loehmann's Plaza at Briarcliff and North Druid Hills at for dddinner before the meeting. This is a new feature.
September meeting report:
18 people attended the meeting. Uwe Trode provided the refreshments. It was decided that Uwe and Marilyn will be the permanent refreshment providers it was quite nice German-oriented snacks.
I have waited so long to describe the meeting that I forget most of the show-and-tell, but it was quite interesting. I do remember that Mike had some new(old) cards and Steve had his five camera digital rig. One item was an anaglyph beam splitter manufactured by potential new member, Sawyer. Although he felt that everyone had probably made one of these, it was the first one which I had ever seen. It also inspired the anaglyph projection for the October meeting.
The Hall of Fame Shows consist of slides which have been retired after a large number of acceptances in PSA exhibitions. The slides were quite good. I had expected faded slides with so-so mounting. A few had obviously slid in their mount, but most were excellent. The sound tape self-destructed, somewhat like on "Mission Impossible". Fortunately, there was a paper copy of the text. I read the text and Larry changed slides at about 7-8 seconds per slide (quite an effort for 150 slides). The tape was at about 20 seconds per slide, so there was a benefit that we could show all of the slides in the time available. I did leave off all of the credentials to shorten the text.
