February 2010 Newsletter
By Doug WilsonFor those of us who love photography, we usually enjoy to travel as well. Some famous photographer somewhere once said, "To make more interesting photographs, one must stand in front of more interesting things." That said, what do we bring with us? How much gear do I need?How do I lug this gear around?"
By Will Kennard
The Woodlands Photo Club has recently concluded a very successful photojournalism venture with the Montgomery County Hospital District - EMS. The club was highly praised at MCHD annual awards dinner held in December. Members are now in the process of riding with The Woodlands Fire Department and soon the Conroe Fire Department in similar programs. These programs should last for another 3 to 4 months. We hope to have a countywide showing of photographs at the conclusion of the current projects. If you have not considered joining in these projects, please do so. It is easy and if interested, contact Will Kennard
