Due to COVID-19 we have all been cautious. Now, MAPS is working on getting back to normal. Please read up on our upcoming activities below!

Upcoming Programs

We are holding our monthly programs using Zoom, and all members are invited! Check out our Zoom web page to prepare for the monthly program meetings and for tips & tricks we might have.

If you are looking for past programs, please go to Programs. This web page includes a write up and a few images from each monthly program. When possible, we also post a recording of the monthly program for a few months.

  • July 12, 2021 – John Mariana – Ansel Adams

    Ansel Adams was the master of artistic black & white prints. He developed the rules and requirements of quality prints. Join John Mariana as he explains Ansel’s technique and requirements using many of his fine art images. John will present The Man, His Darkroom Techniques (Photoshop Today) and The Fine Art B&W print requirements.

MAPS Photo Outings

Photo Outings are back! For the last year, we needed to keep ourselves isolated, so we participated in a “Photo Challenge” each month. I know it helped keep our skills up. But, now we can begin getting together, within limits.

  • Tuesday, June 15th – Chicago Botanic Garden

    The group outing may be over, but all MAPS members are welcome to visit the CBG anytime during the month of June and post your fantastic photos on our web page.

    Visit Photo Outings for more information on this outing.
