What we are:

The Bend Photography Group began in 2008 as a focal point for local, aspiring photographers to come together to share, learn, network and explore their passion for photography.  We are a group primarily for amateur photographers and/or serious hobbyists, but no one is excluded.  One goal is to have a monthly critique of our photos, so that we can learn both the technical and artistic aspects of photography.  The interesting photo shoots will still continue.  We hope to foster learning through the shooting, sharing and discussion of our photos with each other.

What we’re not:

The group is not an on-line photo album service where you can post your everyday snapshots.  There are other wonderful venues online for that. We do have online albums for photos related to our critiques and shoots.  We are not a group for commercial photographers to advertise their products and services.  We are also not a group for people to join for the sole purpose of posting a link to their businesses website and saying, "Call or email me."  

If this group sounds like it might be a good addition to your life, join the group, grab your camera, and get to know us.

Happy Shooting!

    "This is from my digital. I did get this image on film as well. B&W. Based on the negatives, I think I got a decent shot or two. My enlarger will not be set up until this weekend, so no prints yet...."

    "The way the clouds across the moon echo the curve of lights flowing into P-ville really make this image"

    "Oh, and I toned down the highlights slightly, to keep the main light source from drowning out the fainter rays."

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
