Northwest Houston Photo Club Meet Up is somewhat unique in the Houston area. It is a combination of a brick and mortar camera club with a meet up online community. It offers not only a vast accumulation of photographic knowledge to be shared with new photographers but also the flexibility anticipated through the use of the Internet. It offers the more traditional avenues of getting your photographs seen and critiqued as well as an online gallery for posting and commenting.
There are no dues for the ONLINE membership however for those that wish to become part of a more structured brick and mortar camera club there are some definite advantages to being a PAID member. That is all explained in the PAGES tab above. There is already a year’s worth of outings in place in addition to a year’s worth of monthly competitions.
I just want to say thank you for taking the time to browse our site and to let you know that you are welcome at both the monthly shoots as well as at the two monthly meetings. We will do our best to make your interest justified. Look forward to meeting you.
We are lucky to have Wayne Wendel back for our November Program Meeting. He will be discussing his experiences and tips for bird photography. Wayne Wendel has been a photographer since 1967, starting with an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic and developing black and white film. He was a photographer for the Houston Police Department from 1977 to 2005. Wayne has continued photography in retirement with an emphasis on birds, landscapes, travel, architecture, and sports. In 2013 he helped establish the Bridgeland Photography Club. He had an exhibit at Alliance Francaise de Houston. Wayne has won photo contests with his photos of birds from our area, including the 2018 Spring Photo Contest for the Friends of Anahuac Refuge. Watching and photographing birds is an enjoyable activity. Please join us as we learn more from Wayne.
For the last topic of the year, I always try to find something easy. I’m sure we’ve all worked with weathered wood and can probably put together some shots easily. For me, I just need to go outside to my fence. Really, this is a “texture” image – so some sharp side light will probably be involved.
Additional categories for November will be Open and From the Outings
