GREETINGS: Central Florida Chapter Members,

CHAPTER NEWS FOR THE 2014-2015 SEASON:

******************************************************************************************

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, APSA, PPSA
Program Committee Chairman

**************************************************************************************************************************************************************

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

To create a gallery, you are asked to furnish three things; a portrait of yourself, a biography of approximately 250 words (don’t 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, Chairman
