Part of MVPC’s general meeting is devoted to salons. Each meeting has four salons: Color Topic, Color Open, Monochrome Topic, Monochrome Open. The monthly salons alternate between prints and projected digital images. The topics are determined the previous year by club vote.

In addition MVPC also offers an Educational salon.  The Educational Salon will provide feedback on how to improve an image from one or more experienced club members during Focus Night. The feedback provided may include a demo of possible ways to improve an image.

For more detailed information on entering salons, see the links listed below.
