Without a doubt, my photography would not be where it is today without this group. I heard about them from professional photographer and member Marcie Fry, and after waffling for a few meetings, I climbed on board – and haven’t looked back.
This photo is of our current exhibition at Wood Library in Canandaigua (third floor). It runs until December 18, and I’m convinced it’s our best show yet. We’ve been doing this for eight years, and the quality of the work just keeps improving.
Digital photography is a fast-changing world, both in terms of camera technology and editing software. My preference is to take the best photos, but knowing a bit about the editing tools can certainly make a good photo great. Photographers are now inhibited more by their limited imaginations than they are by the tools that serve them.
But having a dedicated group of like-minded photographers has been a godsend. I bought both of my DSLR cameras based on the advice of Paul Yarnall, who continually challenges all of us to master the technology. I’m inspired by the keen creative instincts of Jeff Adams, who also taught an exceptional digital photo course at FLCC until his retirement. And I benefit immensely from our monthly meetings where we share, support, celebrate, and explore. (Best of all, these folk travel all over and I get a preview of all the places I want to go!)
Stop by our display if you get a chance. I’d love to hear what you think!
