Our January monthly meeting will be by Zoom. On Wednesday, January 13, at 7:00, Jim Burkstrand will host the meeting. All are invited, even snowbirds!
Education meeting via Zoom. Wed January 20, 7 PM.
This from Jim: Participants will send me B&W photos taken in Tubac. Please send me up to 3 jpeg photos, at least 2000 pixels on the long side which I will show via Lightroom. You can then comment on the photo as to why you shot it, etc, and any B&W conversion that you did. You can include a color version if you want.
Field trip to Tubac. Yeah! Friday January 15.
The plan is to meet at 1:30 in front of the Art Center on the main entrance to Tubac. There will be no organized lunch. You can arrange small group lunches on your own earlier in Tubac.
At 1:30, we will walk around Tubac, small groups, discovering subjects to shoot which will make good B&W photos.
At 1:30 and later in the afternoon, the temperature will be warmer than the morning, and the sun will still be low enough in the sky to produce great shadows. We will all be outside and can easily maintain safe social distancing.
Photos from the November field trip to Tohono Chul can be seen here.
