Landscape Photography Workshop

Our next workshop is Thursday January 4 at the Community Center at 7pm. It’s our first of 2018, and a great start.

You’ll be surprised how much more there is to excellent Landscape photography than just pointing your camera at something that’s not moving, and clicking. Landscape photography has a long illustrious history and has the added advantage of getting you outdoors. In this workshop we’ll cover do’s and don‘ts, equipment, shooting techniques, and image post processing. Register by clicking below.

Merry Christmas

With the Christmas season upon us, and with this being my last month as President of this club I felt it important to thank all of you, our members, and especially all of you who worked with me on so many of our club projects over these past four years for a the gift you gave me when you voted to allow me to do this job.  I’ve loved photography for a long time, and I did many of the things I’m sure you all do to improve; I read, I watched instructional videos, I attended workshops and seminars and I went on photo trips.  None of that helped me improve nearly as much as the everyday experience and wonder of being president of such a great photo club!  You all inspired me  to look further and dig deeper than I ever did before, and for that I am eternally grateful.  My love for photography is greater than it has ever been.

With this transition to new leadership I think our club is set for greater things.  Kathy Muhle and Jim Schepens are set for the next stage.  I spoke with Leon Guinn (the prior President) the other night and reminisced about where the club was, and what its become.  It came a long way under Leon and his predecessors, Phil Bozzo, and Bill Beard….I hope I moved the needle a bit, and I am absolutely sure Kathy and Jim will do a great job.  There is so much more we can do, both for our members and for our community.  My goal was to make our club a full fledged member of our community.  We started that with public workshops, photo restoration after the storm and events like our coming Santa shoot.  Much more remains to be done.  

Merry Christmas to all of you.

Upcoming Workshops

We are really excited to see our workshop series resume, this time at the Community Center every first Thursday night at 7pm. While not our ideal time it does give us a regular time and place. The room holds about 25 people and our November (Travel Photography) date still has a few seats left. We’ll follow up with an Introduction to Photography in December, Landscape Photography in January, a Photoshop workshop in February, HDR Photography in March and Get to Know Your Camera in April.

 

If you have suggestions for workshops you’d like us to offer let me know at admin@kwphotoclub.com.  See our Workshops, click below.

Travel Photography Workshop – Nov 2

Nov 2, 7pm at the Kingwood Community Center

Traveling with a camera is something almost everyone does, but how many of us come back with those iconic shots we wish we had taken, and even worse, how many of us actually print and save our photos from the trip? In this workshop we’ll talk about planning before going, equipment to take with you, shooting those crowded venues so it looks like you were there alone, and finally creating a photo book when you return.

Photography Workshops

Because the library will be closed through at least next January or February, and because it appears meeting rooms are scarce around Kingwood at the moment, we are not going to be able to continue our workshops for a while. We promise to resume as soon as we can find a reliable location. That may mean we will have to wait until we can get back into the library.
