GGCS Meetings

GGCS General Meetings to Move to Drakes Landing in 2016
Due to a very large increase in rent GGCS will not be able to continue our general meetings at the Four Points Sheraton after our November 2015 meeting. Our new location will be the Community Room at Drakes Landing in Greenbrae, which is right next to Jason’s Restaurant. We will continue to meet on Monday nights with the first meeting on Jan. 25, 2016, and have a contract for all of 2016.
The room is about the size of the current room at the Four Points Sheraton, has plenty of well-lit parking and good acoustics.
Take highway 101 to Sir Francis Drake and go west toward the Bon Air Shopping Center.
Turn left at the first light onto Barry Way.
Turn left at the first stop sign onto Drakes Landing Road.
Go to the end and look for the Jason’s Restaurant sign.
Go through the foyer and turn left (Jason’s is on the right).

Wednesday, February 17, 2016: On The Art of Printing

Gene Morita, a retired physician and long-time Master Photographer at the Marin Photo Club and Co-Print Chair of the Northern California Council of Camera Clubs will discuss why we print and why he loves it so. He will also share some examples from his personal collections and explain many technical aspects of printing such as: monitor calibration, cropping, soft proofing, color correction, gamut warning, monochrome printing, Photoshop color management versus printer color management and matting.

Class members are invited to bring some of their own prints for review and discussion. It should be fun so, don’t be shy, show up with your prints.
