Well, I’m totally stoked! Tonight we are having the very first get together of the Souris Valley Photography Club! It’s a Facebook club that I started 2 years ago to see if there was any interest in starting a photography club down here in the south east corner. Several people signed up and tonight we are having our meet & greet to discuss and brainstorm some possibilities for the club. My chief concern is that I have never been part of a photography club before, so I’m blazing a new trail for myself and others. But we have a ton of very talented photographers all over the place here, so I’m hopeful this will really take off.
My current vision is to have a monthly get together where a topic would be presented, a time of discussion & shop talk, photo sharing and then have an assignment for next time, whether it be black & white photos, sunsets, wildlife, portraits, the color purple, whatever. I’m excited also to organize a couple of photo walks in the spring and fall to possibly capture the small-town urban atmosphere or the rural life in the countryside. The opportunities here really are endless.
So, it’s exciting! I’m pumped up and I hope there’s a good turn out. Everyone is always learning all the time and I think a local photography club can be a way of helping everyone involved take better photographs and have fun doing it!
