Adults interested in photography are invited to attend monthly gatherings where photographers from novice to professional share ideas and learn about contests and other events.   Members go on shoots together, as well as exhibit their work in the Historic Wood’s Grist Mill in the spring.  Attendees are invited to show prints or digital images of a different topic each month.  If the picture is enhanced using photo editing software it is helpful to also show the out of camera shot, which serves as a learning tool.  Discussion topics during 2015 will include lighting and posing when taking studio portraits, painting with light, night photography, and editing programs such as Photoshop.
