Happy Holidays!

No December meeting

The November meeting was a discussion of photographing rocks and minerals, particularly in the field. We discussed composition and focus on the subject, clarity and camera capabilities, close-up and panorama shooting. We covered equipment and presentation, and keeping a notebook, and processing pictures at home.

There will not be a December meeting – the meeting date is too close to the holidays. I will see everyone again in January, and wish everyone happiness and good cheer.
