LPC October Meeting

October Meeting

Oct 3rd, Lawrence Public Library, Meeting Room A, 7:00 pm. Member Discussion

There is no guest speaker for our next meeting so I thought we might use the time to share our likes and dislikes of our equipment as well as the various software used.  Because the membership is at different skill and experience levels I realized this is something we can share in an informal meeting.   So bring your camera and len(s) and let us know what you have owned in the past and want to own in the future along as what you like about what you are now using.  If anyone has a mirrorless camera, please bring that.  Given the newness of this type of camera I, and think others, are curious about it and why it may be the best pieces of equipment you could own.  Our meeting will be a lot of open discussion and sharing of ideas and experiences.
If you have some particular software you would like to comment on don’t hesitate on bringing your computer and show us what you are using.

Hope everyone was able to have a great summer full of travel, family and friends.  Let’s share our photos and have an informal meeting to get back into the swing of things.  Jim Bresnahan is sharing his travel photos.  He spent several weeks traveling around Europe.

Photography Workshops by the Crane Trust

The Crane Trust is a non-profit conservation organization located on the Platte River, near Grand Island. We protect over 10,000 acres of land which are crucial habitat for Whooping Cranes, Sandhill Cranes, and other migratory birds. Two photo workshops, in July and October, will take place at the Crane Trust and are held on our largest piece of property - over 5,000 continuous acres of historic Nebraska prairie. 

These workshops will not only feature opportunities to photograph beautiful prairie landscapes, wildflowers, and a wide array of wildlife, but participants will also have the chance to photograph our genetically pure bison herd. 

Tuition for these workshops is all-inclusive which includes lodging in our comfortable cottages, meals and drinks including wine and beer, workshop instruction, as well as on-ground transportation. A portion of each tuition is also tax-deductible as it goes directly to our conservation efforts. 

To learn more about the workshops, you can visit www.cranetrustexcursions.org/workshops, or you can watch a short video showing the location and accommodations here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvjJQaQJTqg. 

Space for these workshops is very limited. If anyone has questions or would like to reserve a spot in the workshop, they can contact me directly at bdumas@cranetrust.org or at (720)284-8432.
