This group is meant for people who might have taken thousands of pictures but are still trying to figure out what photography is all about.  Its for people who have friends and family members tired of hearing about things like aperture, noise, composition.. and tired of waiting for us when we stop in our tracks, tilt our heads to the side, and attempt to take a picture of something no one else sees.  Its for people who take note of the quality of light, don't like to leave home without a camera and constantly imagine what something would look like through a viewfinder.  Professionals are also most welcome, of course :) . 

For about eight years I lived in downtown Chicago.  It was nice to live in a place where everywhere I went I saw people with cameras, and not just tourists.   In such a concentrated area of picture takers there is a constant stream of photos, hundreds an hour, uploaded to social media.  Being connected with scores of other photographers in close proximity and monitoring their streams on social sites like Flickr, Instagram, 500px, Google+ was exciting.  The photography scene is obviously not as busy in Valparaiso and northwest Indiana, but I'm sure there is a lot of potential.   

Photography is often a solitary pastime, but that doesn't mean there isn't something to be gained in collaborating with others.  Perhaps this group can help us learn more, share ideas, set up shows, promote our town and find inspiration.
