UPDATE July 7: There are many more people on the waiting list than we will be able to accommodate. Working on a repeat date for this event for those who cannot be included on this date. Meanwhile, if you have a "YES" and you're already a veteran night shooter or know you can't make it, please give up your space to your fellow member(s). Thanks.
Every so often we haul out our dog and pony show and help beginners and intermediate night denizens with basics about Night Photography.
