24th. The exhibition is a collection of photographs by the Light
Catchers, of Houston, Texas. Light Catchers is a group of fourteen
serious amateur photographers incluiding eight members from WPC.
The group was formed with the purpose of pooling their photographic
talents to work on a single project. Development of individual style
and excellence are the key objectives of this group. Fine quality
photographs from the Texas coast to the desert salt flats will be
on display. On July 30th, the Light Catchers will be sponsoring
a special presentation; Identifying and Understanding Antique
Photographs. This program is a great way to learn about the
technology behind those old family photos, and how to care for them.
Admission is free, and attendees are encouraged to bring in old
photographs for examination and sharing with the group.

double exposure or bulb aperture, no flash, are recommended.
Vertical format is better than horizontal. Your exposure
should be long enough (2, 4,or 8 seconds) to capture part
or all of the progression. Best of the show will be the
