I believe that part of photography is sharing your work beyond competition night. So many wonderful images are stuck in computers, notepads, and cells phones crying to get out. On November 14th I shall present a program entitled Creating Cards and Calendars!
I shall demonstrate creating note cards using Red River cardstock. Their website contains online tutorials and Lightroom templates for card making. They also provide printer profiles for common printers and the various paper types they sell. Red River is mailing me cardstock samples and flyers to distribute to audience members!!!
I also shall explore creating your own calendars using VistaPrint. Sign up on their website to receive their discount announcements (Google VistaPrint.com for the most current information). Then select 12 of your favorite images and prepare them to send to VisaPrint when the “rock bottom” discount is announced; last year it was around Thanksgiving.
For members who do not print their own images, I will provide a resource list for a variety of items that you can order online. These include books, canvas prints, mugs, mouse pads, playing cards, luggage tags, tee shirts, tote bags, ornaments, and iPhone covers
Join me on November 14th and give your images a new life outside your computer!
Georgette’s journey in photography began 11 years ago when her granddaughter, Ava, was born. Not capturing the cute smiles she wanted, she switched from a point’n shoot to a DSLR (Nikon D80). She attended her first Nature Visions show at Meadowlark in 2007 and discovered there were camera clubs in the area! She joined NVPS in January 2008 and was hooked on photography as a hobby. She was the president of the Northern Virginia Photographic Society (NVPS) from 2014 to 2015.
Georgette advanced her photography skills by taking hands-on classes. Some of her instructors included John Gonsalves, Eliot Cohen, Corey Hilz, Nikhil Bahr, Josh Taylor, Mike Moats, and Denise Silva. By attending NVPS lectures, workshops, and field trips she believes her photography has evolved to a higher level. Participation in competition has helped to give her a critical eye when capturing and post-processing her images. She reads online columns daily to keep “up to date” on new camera equipment and software tips. Recently Georgette switched from a Nikon D7200 camera to a Fuji X-Pro2 to lighten her load.
Georgette captures moments she wants to remember. Her subjects include abstracts, people, places, and nature, but her favorite subject is flower close-ups and macros. Lately she is dabbling more with B/W images.
Seeing her images in print completes the photography journey. Georgette has shown her images at
- The Art League in Alexandria, VA,
- the Glen Echo Annual Labor Day Art Show,
- the ArtSpace Herndon Fine Art Photography Exhibit,
- Nature Visions annual exhibit,
- the Annual Joseph Miller Abstract Photography Exhibit,
- Beanetics Coffee Roasters coffee shop in Annandale, VA, and
- The 2016 and 2017 volumes of The Northern Virginia Review.
