Our theme this month is “orientation” – meaning anything other than the usual landscape or horizontal. In other words: square, vertical or portrait, panoramic, or fisheye. As always, this is for members to interpret or ignore as they choose. We’ll talk about continuing the mid-month, mid-week supplemental meetings and whether we are getting closer to in-person meetings. Send photos for the meeting and the website, as well as ideas for a Mystery Photo Critique, and requests for sign-in info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday, February 23, 2021, 7:00 PM, via Zoom (rescheduled)
This is our non-agenda, no-pressure experiment with a meeting at a different day and time than the usual. We’ll talk about photography or whatever is on our minds. If you have any photos to show we will do that through screen-sharing. Maybe we will have a Mystery Photo. Bring a friend! If you need sign-in info contact email@example.com.

An online gallery exhibition of artwork that explores our country’s current state of affairs as we navigate a worldwide pandemic, sheltering in place, and widespread protest against the mistreatment of people of color by law enforcement across the nation.
Park Steiner is offering back issues of Popular Photography, Outdoor Photographer, Shutterbug, American Photographer, and Photo Techniques. Dates range from the 1990’s to recent years. Most of these publications are now out of print, but much of the content remains relevant. There are articles on composition, lighting, posing, even working with models, professional or just the grandkids. Black and white is a common topic, both digital and from the darkroom. There are inspirational pieces on why art is an important part of photographers’ lives, and how photographs are instrumental in disseminating information to others. And, of course, the magazines are filled with many fine examples of great photography. In addition, the advertisements provide a window into the technology and styles of the time.
The only organization is that they are in boxes by publication. Dates are random. Being stored indoors, they’re all in nice shape.
Interested photographers should contact Park at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for perusal and pickup at his Deerwood home.
