We meet at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, which has closed its public meeting rooms through the end of May to help protect its campus and students, and the many community members who use its facilities.

Medical professionals and the Centers for Disease Control recommend that we avoid gatherings and groups to help manage the virus. About 100 people regularly attend our first and third Thursday meetings.

These monthly meetings at UNTHSC are cancelled:

  • March 19
  • April 2
  • April 16
  • April 28 workshop
  • May 7

Please follow us on Facebook and this website for updated information about club activities. We will provide additional information about outings not at UNTHSC, competition, programs and future events on these sites and by email. Thank you for your membership and your understanding.

We encourage you to consult with your health care provider and follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and its experts in the study, treatment and prevention of viral illness. Here are tips:

  • If you feel ill, have a cough or shortness of breath, stay home and contact your medical provider.
  • If you think you may have been exposed to the corona virus, stay home and contact your medical provider.
  • Avoid large gatherings and groups of people.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.
  • Don’t shake hands with others.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds (Sing the Happy Birthday Song twice).

Lightroom Tips Workshop: June 9, 2020

  • 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 9, 2020
  • Online, for Members
  • Lightroom Tips from Master Photographer Robert Chura

Join others in the club in a Zoom workshop to learn Lightroom tips from Master photographer Robert Chura.

Chura_Robert_400wBob will show us how he uses Lightroom Classic CC to enhance his photographs. Users of Lightroom 6 may follow along with most of the presentation.

This will be mostly for intermediate and advanced Lightroom users who know the basics of Lightroom tools. But the basics will apply to other software, and beginners will certainly get some good ideas from Bob’s presentation. Bob will go through a couple of his images and show how he uses Lightroom tools and brushes to enhance, make masks and improve the final image.

Bob is a Lifetime member of Fort Worth Camera Club. He regularly wins awards at monthly competition in both print and digital categories. Above, Window and Sink, an award winner in May competition.

This event will only be open to club members. Future events may be open to other followers, depending on participation and capacity of our Zoom membership.
