Michael Moats Presentation at CPS - 10/26

Plan to join us for a return visit from Michael Moats on Thursday, October 26th at 7:30! His presentation will be on The Properly Equipped Macro Photographer. This event is free and open to all. See the calendar listing for all the details!

New Competition Tutorial Available!

To help you get the most out of your images, a new tutorial has been added to the Competitions page of this website! Sometimes using 'standard' mat sizes for print competitions is easier and less expensive but may not showcase your image to best advantage by choosing the right size and ratio for maximum impact. And while you're reading, check out the 'How to Compete' and 'How to Mat' presentations as well - all found on the Competitions page of this website. Good Luck to all competitors!
