Photo Challenge for February – “All Things Red”. Turn in photos for our March meeting of how you look at red – given Feb is Valentine’s Day and red is the common color I thought we could all take a look at how this color is around us and put it into a photo. Get out of your comfort zone – experiment – do something different – a new angle – a different post processing – different subject where you wouldn’t expect red – anything like that. I challenge you to surprise us and show off your stuff. Remember to turn in your photos to Paul before the meeting so he can set up the great slide shows like he does. No more than 10 photos please. Go have some fun.
Book suggested at the meeting is available at the Lawrence Public Library. “Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot” by Brian Peterson. One of our members is now reading it and will give us a recommendation soon.
Look for our newsletter coming out in a few weeks for more details on upcoming events and meetings.
