Flagpole Photographers Camera Club is inviting the public to either of its meeting-program events this month.
The club will present a “Know Your Camera” presentation on Thursday, February 8. The program is for anyone with a new camera or someone who is ready to explore other settings. After an overview of the basic settings, attendees will get hands-on experience at different stations. Experienced photographers will be at each station to help guests learn the important fundamentals.
“Know Your Camera” will begin at 7:30 pm. It will be presented at Newtown Senior Center, 14 Riverside Road in Sandy Hook.
The club’s next gathering will then be on Thursday, February 22, for a regular meeting and photo competition.
The assigned subject this month is “Roads Less Traveled.” Club members are challenged to photograph dirt roads, trails, and paths in the woods around us.
Members compete in a different assignment each month, as well as in three additional categories: Open Digital, Open Color, and Open Monochrome. While the competition is only open to members, the public is invited to listen to critiques and learn about photography.
This event will begin at 7:15 pm, and will also take place at the senior center.
There is no charge to attend Flagpole Photographers Camera Club competitions.
Flagpole Photographers is a local nonprofit group that enables members to share their images and expertise, to learn and grow in their photography, and to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow photographers who come from diverse backgrounds, with photographic skills ranging from beginning novices to professionals.
New members are always welcome to join the club and may enter their work in monthly club competitions, participate in workshops, take field trips, get involved in community programs, and take part in annual exhibits. Dues are $35 per person or $55 for a family. Students may join at no charge.
