At our regular February meeting members presented their interpretation of the “Motors, Engines and anything Power Driven” assignment. There were the expected automobiles, planes, boats and even a few “engines” (often in vehicles). The “whatever” category demonstrated members’ creative abilities with bicycles, models and Soap Box Derby racers.
March’s assignment is “Photo Composition.” As usual, Dave Davis has provided us with some guidance on the subject. The following two monthly meeting assignments are based on using what we learned about photo composition (i.e., Composition Color in Photography, and Positive and Negative Space Composition).
A week or so before our March meeting, host Nick Maufe will be emailing directions to his home and asking if you will be attending the meeting. Please respond promptly so he can plan for seating and refreshments

The Digital Photography Group meetings begin at 10:00 AM on the third Friday of the month. Coffee, tea and snacks are provided, for which we ask a $2 donation. All levels of photographer are welcome, from point and shooters to sophisticated mirrorless & DSLR users. We even entertain phone photos!
To provide some structure to our meetings, we assign “themes” for our photos. Each Theme runs for at least two meetings, giving us more opportunity to get the shots we want. Thus, each meeting will have a new Theme as well as photos from the Theme for the previous month or months. Monthly photos may be divide in any manner between the two Themes – i.e., you don’t have to split your photos 50-50. Another benefit of including shots using a previous month’s Theme is that you can take photos using ideas or techniques learned from others the previous month.
Your photo limit for showing is 12 shots on a flash drive. Although we have “theme assignments,” we also strive for flexibility – you may bring photos you think the members would enjoy or learn from, whether or not they support the current Themes. Or, if things are not working out, you may skip showing your photos in any month.
During the photo showings, we do encourage you to discuss both your photos and those of others – what you liked, what you didn’t like. The goal is to help each of us improve our photography.
