In January we gathered at Hans Pable’s home for our first meeting of 2019. The photo subject was “Holiday Photos” – any holiday.

The assignment for our February meeting is to present “Your Best of Last Year (Potpourri). It can be one assignment or a “potpourri” of several assignments. It must, however be restricted to your 2018 presentations. No help from Dave!

A week or so before the February 15, meeting, our host, Bill Espey, will be emailing directions to his home and asking if you will be attending. Please respond promptly so he can plan for seating and refreshments. Also, correct change ($2) for the hosting donation would be appreciated

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.
