The "All About Paper" photography group presents an exhibit of black-and-white photographs in the downstairs Weston Gallery during the month of August, 2017. The group will be on hand to answer questions and talk to prospective members at a reception on Tuesday, August 8th at 6:30 PM. All are welcome to attend!
In January 2012 Catherine Pagano began the All About Paper's Photo Enthusiasts Group for the purpose of bringing like-minded, amateur photographers together. We challenge ourselves to learn more about what our cameras can do for us, in a non-competitive environment. There are no experts in our group; most of us have basic "point and click" cameras. All of us enjoy challenging ourselves to take pictures out of our comfort zones.
Each month Catherine gives a specific challenge to the members. Sometimes the challenge is to utilize a specific technique or function on their cameras; other times the challenge is for a specific subject matter, etc. Then each member is asked to edit their own work and bring their best 3 shots for that month's challenge to the monthly meeting. We share these pictures with all the tips, tricks and techniques about how we obtained these shots. We talk about problems and outside challenges that presented themselves during our picture taking. We help each other find functions on our cameras that we did not know how to effectively use before. It's an environment of sharing and learning.
There is no special requirement to join our group except to have a camera and the enthusiasm to experiment with photography, learn more about your camera and challenge yourself to take better and more interesting pictures beyond your comfort zone.
There is no fee to join. You do not need to attend meetings. You can follow along with each month's challenge by logging onto www.allaboutpaperllc.blogspot.com.
Be as active and involved as you want to be. Only you can motivate yourself to just get out there and take those pictures!
