Hey all I hope that you have had a great summer (I know that it is November) now that we are getting back into winter it is time to update you all on the happenings Photo User Group.

It is a work in progress right now but please take a look www.edgephotogroup.com and let us know if you have something that you want to add let us know we are looking for any input people can provide to help make the site as awesome as possible.

The Printer Update
We now have Canvas & the first test prints are looking truly fantastic! Cost for printing on the new canvas is just 4¢ per square inch.
We can still print on the regular Enhanced or Double weight Matte and Luster papers for the usual 3¢ per square inch. Samples of all these papers can be found hanging on the door inside the Darkroom
Are you not sure where to start with it comes to printing? Check out the Printer FAQ here and if you still have questions email Ana (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Monday November 15th 2010 at 7pm will be the date of our first workshop for 2010. After putting the question to the attendees at tonight’s meeting we decided to start at the beginning. We are going to have an Introduction to photography workshop at my home here at the Edge Details can be found here.
I hope that people can attend armed with questions about film/digital cameras/flashes/anything you are dying to know about. Space may be limited so please RSVP at http://www.edgephotogroup.com/workshop/
Over the next 4 months we will be having monthly workshops on topics you guys choose! So chime in on what you want to learn about
Wednesday November.24th we will be taking what we learned from our introductory Photography workshop and having a photo walk / meet & greet with details here on the Website. The Tentative plan is to start walking from The Edge at 5:30pm headed west down Water St, meandering through Gastown taking photos, getting to know each other, learning from each other, walking over to the New Convention Centre for some night photos. Finally ending at Rouge Wet Bar for a drink hot Chocolate and more conversation. Let us know if you are planning on coming, and if you cant make 5:30 join us on route. This will be an after dark photowalk so dress warmly and bring your fast film!
Do you have unlabeled stuff in the Darkroom? Keeping current labels on your bins and chemistry can help us keep the room neat and tidy, so users are reminded to make sure items you are using in the darkroom are labeled clearly with dates and contact info. Users are reminded that the darkroom is not to be used as long term storage for personal items. Lets keep it to what we are using.
We will see you all at the upcoming workshops and photowalks.
