Merced County Farm Bureau

The exit from CA-99 for CA-59 S is Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
The Farm Bureau building is west of CA-99. After exiting CA-99 you will be traveling in a southwesterly direction with the meeting location on your left.

The start time is the same as normal, 10 AM, and plan on being there by 9:45 to get your entries and forms in.  Jim Cunningham will be catering the lunch.

Don’t forget to remind your members that End of Year entries for prints will need to be turned in on that date at that meeting.
On line entry of End of Year digital entries are due on that date as well.
End of Year entries are 2 in each division that must have been entered during 2017…with the exception being 2 for the Humor category.

Lewis Kemper Workshop

Today we had a workshop/presentation with Lewis Kemper.  During the presentation, he talked about HDR and a plugin he used instead of LR’s native application.

Mac users can get this plugin/bundle at https://www.hdrsoft.com/download/bundle.html

There isn’t a Bundle for PC users, but the plugin can be gotten at https://www.hdrsoft.com/download/merge32bit.html

Once you have installed and tried the plugin, you can purchase a license by clicking “Purchase License Key” button, and then select “why has this been removed.”

There is a Coupon Code of LewisKemper (note the capitals) to get a discount.
