November 13 Meeting (TUESDAY!)

George Carlson presented an intro/overview of digital

photography techniques.  Members shared photos of their recent

field trips and watched a short video of Brazos Bend State Park,

the site of the November field trip.

 

November 17 Field Trip (Saturday)

Brazos Bend State Park, south of Houston, was the site of

our November shoot.  Members saw lots of birds, ground

animals, and several were eaten by alligators (just checking

to see if you’re paying attention here…).

===== ABOUT OUR CLUB ===========================

 

The Woodlands Photography Club meets on the second Monday

of each month from 6:30 to 9 P.M. at the Montgomery County

South Branch Library (just west of The Woodlands Pavilion),

2101 Lake Robbins Dr.  We usually get together in the meeting room

immediately to the left as you enter the front doors.  Visitors and the

curious are always welcome, the odd and weird sometimes, depending

on the weather!  Anyone interested in photography of any type,

no matter what your level of experience (professional, amateur, or

wannabe), is welcome to join our club.  Membership is only $1.25/month

embarrassingly miniscule, we should really charge a whole lot more),

which is $15 paid annually.  That’s the for-real bargain of the year,

folks.
