Monthly Archives: February 2018

President, Leslie Todd resigns

Due to unforseen circumstances, Lesie Todd, President has resigned.  In the best interest of carrying out the functions of our club, Officers, Steve King and Warrena J. Barnerd have agreed to share the duties of president.  Since our club is a non-profit organization, research indicates that the IRS doesn’t care what you call your officers or how many you have, and the presence or absence of a president will, by itself, have no effect on your 501(c)(3) charitable exempt status.

Our next monthly meeting is Monday, March 12 at 6:00 p.m.

Our next meeting is Monday, March 12th at 6pm in Room 214-215 of the Hatley Building, which is part of the Health Technology Campus, on 750 Laffoon Street in Madisonville, Ky.

We ask you to bring 3-5 photos to talk about, either printed or emailed to wkpcweb@gmail.com at least one day before out meeting so that we can preload them.  We look forward to seeing you in March!

Topic is “frame within a frame”.  Winner receives $25.00  In order to enter, you must be a paid member.  You will need to send your print entries to wkpcweb@gmail.com prior to March 12th (the day of our meeting).

April Club Meeting

Our April club meeting program will focus on “Portrait” photography, and to direct us with that will be portrait photographer, Tate Graham from Benton, Kentucky.  We will set up outdoors at the Health Campus, participants are asked to bring a variety of lenses to shoot with, and we will have a family or someone to model for us in exchange for some digital images of them that we capture during the shoot.

Tate Graham

Tate became actively interested in photography in 1996. While going through engineering School in her senior year, she thought she couldn’t make it through one last semester without something fun in her life. Along with the engineering classes she enrolled in a black & white film class with a dark room developing lab. This was one of her hardest classes because of the time that it took to take and process two rolls of film per week….while meeting the criteria for the week. She was hooked and has been involved in photography ­ever since.

Tate started out with film, then slides, and then went totally digital in 2002. She is self taught in Photoshop and Lightroom and various other software programs.  It was 2002 when she first became active in a camera club. By 2004 she had advanced to the Master Photographers status within the club. She has been involved with several different camera clubs since then and is currently a member of the Paducah Photography Club.

Tate has been a portrait photographer primarily. She most recently worked with Gene Boaz Studio in Paducah as a photographer and retoucher. Strobe lighting and posing were essential skills necessary for the job. The studio closed over a year ago and Tate now chooses to photograph nature and enjoy retirement.­­­
