|3rd Thursday||2:00 PM – 4:00 PM||Zoom|
If you enjoy photography, as a beginner or an experienced photographer, consider joining the new fun and lively Photography Interest Group led by Betty Caldwell. We meet every third Thursday in Brookside 1 from 2:00 to 3:30.
It is an open-ended, ongoing group open to all who use digital cameras, from smartphones to multi lens traditional cameras. Our motto is Take Your Best Shot, and we focus on improving composition, with a new easy-to-use and very effective system used by the pros. All members are invited to share their photos for individual supportive critiques on how to make stronger images.
In our first three meetings, we have seen demos of an app that converts photos to striking watercolor images, and one that removes unwanted objects from photos. We have seen lots of members’ photos and shared their stories of capturing them. The thought of “making, not taking, photos” has opened new doors of creative possibilities. And we have worked with the new guidelines for composition that help us see what helps enhance our photos and what detracts. It is great to see members sharing their revised work to show off the impact of their work.
We are looking forward to having a members’ exhibit in September as guest Artists of the Month in the Gallery. All members are welcome to exhibit.
This month’s photos are by Janet Allan, John Chasse, Jan Hryn, Rosemary Eck, Bill May, Gloria Davis, Joe Giacomini, and John Yoder.
