    Rachel, thanks I started the album. It's strange nobody else is posting photos for this.

    Brian, you can start the photo album by clicking on the "Add photos" link at the top of the page just under the August Discussion meetup title.

    is there going to be a photo album for our Emotion photos?

    Tough subject, but some of the shared photos stimulated discussion - nice!

    I am running late with an experiment in the lab, but I will be there! I don't want to miss the organizer conversation.

    I don't know how many members have point and shoot cameras but I have only a little flexibility with, let's say aperture settings. So a blend of technique and a subject would be good for me. That said, I will be heading out traveling in Oct sometime and will be gone for 6 months or more so won't be able to participate in group meetings. But I thought I might keep in touch, focus on the subject matter when I have more time than I do now and maybe send in pics.

    Cathleen - that is my understanding and goal for the group, too (learning from each other and experienced photographers).

    I've asked him to consider since he has a wealth of knowledge and experience and worked as a professional photographer for many years and having his own photography studio. I will let you know of his decision and then get him hooked up with Grant. My dream for this group of for people to have a hunger for learning/growing and for the group to grow in numbers again like when we first started it. See you tomorrow Wed Aug 17th. 6:30p-my clubhouse.

    One more thing: I know the leaders are involved in alot of other things and I understand it's impossible to do everything which is why Grant is stepping down. No punt intended but it would be really nice if the organizer/leader and co-leader could attend most meetings. I can now have a set day of the week each month since I have changed jobs. I have also asked an old friend whom I have been out of touch with to consider becoming our leader. I don't know if he is even interesed, but

    We can take 1 hr to show our photos, then the second hour to talk about a particular function/technique which we will use and present in our photos for the next months meeting. I would like it if we could promptly start the monthly meetings at 6:30 and conclude at 8:30p.

    I think both should be incorporated so that we keep learning/growing. If we learn it, then take it out on our trail walks etc, then we can apply it. We can do both; camera function/technique and topic. Applying that topic to the function learned for that month. With expericenced photographers going along on walks; we can then learn and grow. This was the intent of the original group was it not Marlene?

    We can talk more on Wed, but I, for one, like doing themes. I find having a creative prompt can be fun--in addition to working on a technique. It gives me some direction and helps me get over the what-should-I-take-pictures-of paralysis. :-)

    I completely agree with Brian. Great idea. I think then we can learn and apply and show our photos. Let's do it....See you all Wed Aug 17th

    I was thinking of choosing one technique for us all to use for the next month. But people can discuss it at the 8/17 mtg.

    August 13, 2011

  • Marlene J.

    I like Brian's idea of technique - will be great to reinforce the basics. I can possibly bring a projector and laptop, if needed, but we'd need to seek a good wall.

    August 12, 2011

  • Hugh

    Agree with Brian - focus on technique. The theme could be selecting a location or event that's likely to provide good opportunities to practice and learn about a technique.

    August 12, 2011

  • Brian S

    I'm finding Emotion to be a hard topic. The only photos I can think of are asking people to make emotional faces and get their permission to post their photos here. But I'd rather not do that. For next month, instead of a theme should we try a technique, such as aperture (depth of field), macro's, panning, or low shutter speed, etc? Also, I'm wondering again if anyone is bringing a PC and viewing screen to the 8/17 mtg?

    Yep, I'm planning on this meet up. I haven't got any pics but I will be there. Busy working 2 jobs now, but it will come to a managable calm in Sept because I got a day job in Madtown-Whoohoo. See you on the 17th.

  • Rachel­ changed the location to Cathleen's clubhouse

  • Marlene J.

    Hugh - if you check last month's meeting, the clubhouse is at Cathleen's complex, that she's been great to snag for us each time. The address will be there also. I think we are meeting there for August, but just need to update the meetup - I think one of our organizers have to update the event for us.

    Where/what is the Clubhouse?

    I haven't been able to get any pictures so am not sure about making this months meeting.

    I am sorry but my schedule has changed. I have reserved the club house for Wednesday August 17th. Beth, can you change the date for me as I am not sure how to do this.

  • Marlene J.

    That'd be my vote, and I think it might work for Cathleen's clubhouse also!

    July 19, 2011

  • Beth

    based on the comments, should the date be changed to august 10th? if it does change to that, as of right now, i can make it that night. thanks.

  • Brian S

    Whoops! I thought I was voting in a poll so I selected a date of 8/23 at the top. Now it says that is the date for the meetup. Sorry I didn't mean to set the meet up date. I can change the date again if needed. Or maybe someone else can. Not sure how to fix this.

    either is fine with me.

    8/10 is better for me.

    July 17, 2011

  • Marlene J.

    8/10 works for me; I have a conflict on the 16th.

    I originally gave 2 dates that I was off of work which were 8/10, or 8/16 and that I reserved the club house for. Everyone was suppose to vote for which of the two dates worked for them. It looks like someone changed the date to 8/23. I can't do 8/23. If someone else has a club house they can use then you can have the meet up on that date. If everyone is still in agreement on 8/10 or 8/16 let me know because my landlord won't hold both dates. I have to let them know on Monday.

    Is the topic Emotion or Motion? One email said Motion. Thanks for the clarification.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
