October 2018 Newsletter

October 13, 2018

The regularly monthly meeting will not be held at the South County regional Library.   Monday,  October 8th,  5:30 - 8:30 PM, the club will be at the South County Community Center (next to the library) for the Fall Contest registration and photo drop off.    Registration will be at the South County Community Center (next to the library) in room 105.   We hope all members have their photos ready for submission.   We are looking forward to an outstanding show of photos at this year's  contest.  
A sign-up genius has gone out to all members asking for food donations for our lunch spread at the contest.  If you haven't responded to the sign-up please do so soon.    A little something from everyone will go a long way! 
We hope all members, their families, and friends,  are planning to join us at the Fall Contest on October 13, at 12:00 PM.  This is a great opportunity to see what our club members have been doing with their cameras this year.   We have some very talented artists in our group and you won't want to miss seeing their work! 
November 12, 2018

The Library is closed on the second Monday of November in observance of Veteran's Day.   Therefore, we will meet outside the library,  at 6:30 PM  for a photo walk on the waterway.   We will have some activities and pointers for shooting at night.   Tripods, flashlights,  and bottled water are recommended for the outing.  More information will be posted as we get closer to the meeting date.

This will include informing the membership of trip details, collecting fees (for field trips) if necessary, providing driving instructions, and any pertinent information the members may need to know.

Glam Shots for Cats & Dogs
Montgomery County Animal Shelter

Every Sunday the photography team creates stunning glamour shots of the shelter animals to make it easier for them to get adopted. Anyone interested in being a photographer, please send an email to to receive the guidelines before coming. Assistants are fine to just show up (as long as they have gone through volunteer orientation). Volunteers are always needed to help take animals to and from their cages, pet them, walk them, or even distract them. Photography skills are not needed to help out, just a love for animals.
