A program on Special Effects will be presented by Chris Wilson and Will Hawkins following a brief business session. Special effects could be defined as creating visual illusions in an image, such as making people or objects appear to levitate, creating ghostlike images and manipulating light and colors. Some effects can be accomplished using in-camera settings, while others require special software manipulation including merging several pictures into one image. Wilson and Hawkins will demonstrate how to accomplish some of these effects.

Just a reminder that if you plan on exhibiting in this year’s Van Wert County Fair, you must take your Entry form to the Fair Board Office by noon Saturday, Aug. 9. More information can be found on the Internet at VanWertCountyFair.com.
