LIGHT PAINTING Nov/Dec Meetup Challenge
Photography: n. “the art of light” i.e., a photographer's way of capturing light in a scene. As the days are shorter and we head into the holidays with all the lights, there are easy opportunities to photograph in low light and dark. The photo challenge for November/December is “Light Painting”. Light painting can encompass the addition of light elements during an exposure or using existing light to paint using camera movement. Experiment! Here are the details: Your photograph must be taken between the dates of November 11, 2018 and December 31, 2018. As you upload and caption your image, let us know WHEN and WHERE you took the picture and how light painting helped tell your story. DO NOT upload an old, archived image please. Photographs for this challenge must be taken between November 11, 2018 and December 31, 2018. PRIZES!! - THE IMAGE FLOW, our great MPC sponsor in Mill Valley, will print the winning photograph on high quality archival paper, suitable for framing. - THINK TANK PHOTO donated a blue Ultralight L16 backpack that easily converts from a photo-pack to a day-pack to be given to the winner of this challenge.

What we're about

This meetup group has been created to allow the members of the main organization of the Marin Photography Club ( to have access to our upcoming field trips and other photography events. The Meetup events are also accessible to the public, unless otherwise noted.

Please join and RSVP to attend any of the field trips. Joining the Meetup group will allow you to get all the information you need regarding the event, and post photographs at end of event.

Who we are: The Marin Photo Club Meetup was created to allow us a way of informing our members of upcoming Events, so we may plan our trips in a way which supports our members.

It is a place for us to share our event photos and our comments in a positive learning environment outside our normal scheduled competitions.

We are a group of passionate photographers interested in learning and sharing techniques, knowledge and friendship among our members. We create opportunities to extend our formal and informal portfolios, have competitions on different levels and form special interest groups to learn more about different topics of photography.
