Mary Lou FrostSMCCNIK, Elements,National Park and many moremlfrost[at]verizon.netYes | Yes
The club would get the lesson in advance of the Zoom meeting night.  I suggest that they work the video and try the techniques on the sample image I include. (They could also use the technique on an image of their choice) They are then welcome to send me their image development and either send me questions in advance, or have a local host who can take questions via chat and present the questions.  I will answer questions and probably would start the meeting by doing a live presentation to match what I sent.
Mary Lou also has Lessons posted on the NFRCC website:
