This Meetup is NOT your typical Scavenger Hunt where you run around collecting items. NOR is it one where you shoot around collecting photos of specific items. It IS one where you use Compositional Elements to help collect interesting photos.

We will meet at the Center in the Square where we will pass out a list of Composition Rules (or Guidelines or Suggestions) that you may want to use (or not) to help you enhance your photographic skills. As implied above, these will not be RULES that you must use but they will be Guidelines or Suggestions that many photographers have found to be helpful in making more interesting photos.

So, if you want to prepare for this Meetup you can study up on items we may be asking you to photograph by looking up what many photographers consider to be Compositional Rules. For example a photo which uses the Golden Ratio (based on a Fibonacci Spiral) is one of the Compositional Elements that MAY be one of the 15 items on the list. But please wait till the Meetup to start your photo collection. And please complete your collection by the end of the weekend.

Meet us just inside in the door at the Center in the Square at 7:00 pm on Friday April 26 to pick up a copy of the Scavenger Hunt items. Then collect your photos in downtown Roanoke over the next couple of hours. If you cannot attend at this time we will post the list here as a comment so that you can make your photos any time over the weekend. Then, after the Meetup is completed post your 15 favorite interesting photos (one for each item) by clicking on ADD PHOTOS in this Meetup Announcement. Please add a caption telling which item your photo represents. Also feel free to comment on lessons learned from your photographic experience or how differently the same item may appear in other photographer's pictures.
