PHOTOGRAPHIC DISPLAY AT DA VINCI'S GALLERY

Saturday, July 24

An exhibition, “Texas Backroads”, will be opening at DaVinci’s Gallery on July 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.

Where: DaVinci’s Gallery and Espresso, 315 W. Main St., Tomball, Texas (281) 516-9595

PARTING SHOT


PHOTOGRAPHING FIREWORKS

Tripod, cable release, film ISO 200 (f/11) or 400 (f/16), 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 last set of skyrockets. Save film for this grand finale. Have a nice shooting!
C. García

See you MONDAY the 12th for our July Meeting!
