Our August monthly meeting will be by Zoom. On Wednesday, August 12, at 7:00, Jim Burkstrand will host the meeting. All are invited, even snowbirds!
We will continue the National Geographic Travel Photography series and here are the course materials:
Travel Video no 23 Working with Video
Travel Video no 24 Sharing Your Stories
Everyone will get an email from Jim on connecting to the Zoom meeting but here are some technical details:
You will receive an email from my Gmail account on that day about 6:45 pm which will invite you to join my meeting. I will do that by email, as the email will contain both the meeting ID and the password to enter the meeting.
It will look like this (minus the red)
You should read the email on the device you will use to participate in the meeting. When you go to the link specified, please join the meeting with your video. You will then go into a waiting room. I will release you from that room to the meeting room. Be sure to also turn on your audio.
When the meeting starts, I will probably mute everybody.
We will have a Chat function available.
I have only had a few issues arise with a couple of iPads.
Check your junk mail if you don't see my email in a reasonable amount of time.
Please don't use Firefox as a browser to open your email that day. It may have audio problems. Check your device settings and be sure that your camera is turned on.
It will also work the best if you have no other applications open when we do the Zoom meeting.
And it will be faster if you download the Zoom app ahead of time.
We will have our June education meeting on Wed. August 19 via Zoom.
Details will be announced via email from Jim.
Photos from the February field trip to San Xavier del Bac can be seen here.
