     You guys are the BEST! I had such a wonderful day! 

    Rhonda R. R. on Jun 11, 2011.

  • Exploring Photography

     Personally, I do like the monthly creative theme "challenges" that Jan puts out for us. My belief is that "interesting" photography forces the photographer to create a theme for each image. Artful photography is about learning to see patterns, shapes, silhouettes, ect. that hopefully become interesting, not only to the photographer, but to the observer as well. Creating themes, in your mind before shooting, is the essential factor in creative photography! Photography is a lifelong learning process and Exploring Photography togetherness helps to lead us into understanding the inner workings of creative imagery. Thus, the one thing I would like to have this group do is to occasionally hold group meetings where anyone can bring one "best" image and have a frank and open critique of the good and the bad features of that image. We can all learn by doing this. 

    David A. on Mar 14, 2011.

  • Exploring Photography

     the members are friendly; and don't mind assisting those that are less knowledgeable than themselves. i signed up for one event to check out the 'atmosphere' of the group...and it was like hanging out with old friends. i have learned SO much from the group members...and look forward to each new meetup.
