 +==== June 20th 2010 ====
 +Hi Folks
 +it has come to our attention there is a Volley ball Tournament at Britannia
 +this weekend so a Photgraphy sig meeting would be a bit difficult to manage
 +there.
 +
 +So at short notice it has been moved to a new location listed below.
 +The time remains the same (2.30pm) and Richard can bring a UPS if needed,
 +also I am coming in from Carp, if rides are required from my direction
 +please advise me before Friday evening.
 +
 +Regards
 +Eric Brackenbury

 +New Location:
 +The gazebo at [[http://​maps.google.ca/​maps?​f=q&​source=s_q&​hl=en&​geocode=&​q=Macdonald+Garden+Park+Ottawa&​sll=49.891235,​-97.15369&​sspn=40.598246,​79.013672&​ie=UTF8&​hq=Macdonald+Garden+Park&​hnear=Ottawa,​+Ottawa+Division,​+Ontario&​ll=45.428455,​-75.674343&​spn=0.041021,​0.076046&​t=h&​z=14&​cid=7746723176201952787&​iwloc=A|Macdonald Garden Park]], Ottawa, Ontario

 +
 +===== Agenda =====
 +
 +  * Wiki pages
 +  * Tutorials
 +  * Photo Shoot/​Edit/​Process outings
 +
 +===== Ideas for consideration =====
 +
 +  * Several folk have talked of the issues of captioning / documenting their photos more easily. The software for this is relatively under-developed,​ especially if one wants (for very good archiving reasons) to have the caption WITHIN the file. JPG files can have (??correct details please if I am wrong) up to 4 blocks of 64K of text in comments. This is very useful for those genealogy and historical pictures. Other folk need detailed information on the background to high-end photos.
 + 
 +  * Issues of quality and cleanup of photos with different software.
 +  * Dealing with archival file format.
 +
 +===== Interested members =====
