Show & Tell

An hour before the regular monthly meetings, MAPS holds a Show & Tell social hour starting at 6 pm. Members are invited to share their knowledge, abilities, talents, skills or photographic endeavors with other members in a casual setting.  Members have the opportunity to view art displays and/or technology features aimed towards furthering our photographic learning and experiences.

Members who would like to share their work in the Show & Tell format should contact Roger Mattingly at

Roger Mattingly gets another thank you – this time for sharing his eclipse photography at the October meeting as a warm up to the anticpated eclipse on 10/14. He presented a 32×40 display board of the last annular eclipse of 1994 shot at a state park near Paxton, Illinois and a slide show of the 2017 total eclipse shot from a state park near St. Louis. Sadly, the 10/14 annular eclipse was totally clouded out in the Chicago area.

Thanks to Chuck Hunnicutt and Hart Kannegiesser for sharing their great infrared images with our membership! The photos demonstrated the special effects from various wavelength filters… more color to more black & white/contrast. Membership really appreciated the level of expertise shown and how stunning the images were. Thanks much!
