OPS members! Last year's Personal Photography Night at the Annual Meeting
in Orlando was such a huge success - we have decided to do it again in
Chicago. Many OPS members take pictures by day and enjoy photography
during their off time. Some of us are avid photographers;
others snap shots with cell phones when that "Kodak moment"
arises. Don't let those moments of self-doubt interfere with sharing your
awesome photographs (I myself am guilty of this). Actually I think this
every year when the call comes for entries for the scientific exhibit, ASCRS,
etc. "My images aren't good enough", "someone else's are better", "if only I
had a better camera", "if only I'd remember to carry my camera with me".....these
are some of my thoughts, and I know that I am not the only one thinking these
things. The truth is some of my images are good, and yours are too!
Send them to me. It doesn't matter if you used your professional camera,
disposable camera, or cell phone, and yes, I will be looking for some of
my images as well.

the Welcome Reception on Friday, November 9th, we will display your
personal photographs. This is open to all OPS members, even if you are
unable to attend the meeting. We will combine all accepted entries into a
slideshow and loop the images during the Welcome Reception. This is a great way
to learn about the "other” side of many colleagues you have only known through
ophthalmology. The first 15 submissions received by October 30th will be
included. The submission details are listed below:
-Jpeg images at 96 dpi
-The longest side of your image should be 1000 pixels
-12 images maximum
-Images must be received by October 30th
-Include your name and your city/state
Send images to Sonya Brooker, CRA through http:// www.yousendit.com
or to her email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
