October General Meeting Cancelled

I'm really sorry to have to cancel the General Meeting tomorrow, Oct. 13th.  Due to last minute unforeseen circumstances, I cannot be available tomorrow, and there was insufficient time for someone to step in.

The good news is that we have great speakers lined up for November 10th and January 12th, with our Holiday Breakfast in between on December 8th.

 

Fall is here, and the weather is perfect for getting out to get some bright fall colors -- the best time of the year for landscape photography.  We will take a vote at the November 10th General Meeting for the best fall colors photo of 2021 and award a gift card to the Best Fall Photographer of 2021.

 

Again, my apology for having to cancel tomorrow's meeting.

SCLH Photography Club Facebook Page

This is a place for SCLH Photography Members to have a conversation about photography, cameras, and places to shoot photography in the area. You can ask a specific "how to" or "where can I find..." or "how can I improve this shot?" or "thinking of going to.....does anyone want to come too?" You can post great photography-related websites that others might like. Use your creativity.  The SCLH Photography Club Facebook page is accessible to all residents of Sun City Lincoln Hills.

 

There are a few rules.

  1. No politics, none, nada.

  2. The only things you can sell on this page are photography equipment that is usually sold within the club like reselling cameras, printers, etc. Nothing else. Nothing.

  3. Constructive criticism only when critiquing. (Don't tell us that it was a stupid, boring shot, We'll figure it out anyway.)

  4. If you are selling your photography, protect your copyright. You may not want that one up on the Internet on Facebook. Post a link to your photography website instead.
