November 2022 Monthly Meeting (via Zoom)

We will again meet via Zoom in November, due to scheduling issues. The meeting is Thursday, November 10 at 7pm. Join early to socialize. A link to the October meeting will be sent in advance via email to members and interested non-members. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please send an email to flatirons[at]flatironsphotoclub.org with the subject line ‘Mailing list’.

Our November presenter, Greg Holden, is a photographer based in Denver https://www.imagesunderfoot.com/about-us/. He will present a program called “Pairings”. Greg hopes this presentation inspires you to investigate your own portfolio and to discover common threads in your style.

Greg will do a critique of member images in the 2nd half of the program. Please use the process found on our website to submit your images: https://flatironsphotoclub.org/monthly-members-competition.

Every dues-paying member may share up to 2 images for the critique. Please also submit your images to photos.flatironsphotoclub@gmail.com by noon on Monday the 8th.

We have photographers of all abilities in the club and all of us have been beginners and shy about sharing our pictures. So members, one and all, please plan to share. We want to see your work.

The October meeting will be a members’ meeting. Every dues-paying member may share up to 2 images for group feedback. We will do a share screen from members’ computers rather than project them as we do for competition, but if you need that help from Peter, submit your images to him by noon on Monday. We won’t need to categorize the images, but if you are looking for a theme our October special topic is Landmarks.

Photography Meetup Group

Winn Robbins, formerly from Mike’s Camera and member of Flatirons Photo Club, has started a new photography Meetup group. It’s a free Meetup for photographers of all stripes and experience levels. He’s aiming it at many different contexts of photography, from portraits to wildlife, from landscape to macro. If club members have interest in particular topics, he would be happy to add more meetups to the upcoming list. You can contact Winn at his gmail address winslowrobbins.

The person/people can be engaged in an activity or the image can be a portrait. Each member may submit up to 2 images that you want to talk about and that you wish to get feedback on.
