Last night I went to the first meeting of the Camas Camera Club. Camas is a small town about 15 miles south-east of here. It was held in the library. A friend of a friend started it, she’s a professional dog photographer, and my friends encouraged me to go. There were only five other people there, but it was the first meeting!
Everyone was supposed to bring two pictures, but I couldn’t decide and brought three.
It was fun to see the other pictures people brought. Some of them are quite accomplished professional photographers, people who have had exhibits, stuff like that. I think being able to learn techniques and get critiques from people who know more than I do will be good for improving my skills.
We started out with an assignment to come back next meeting with a new picture of an ‘interaction’ – our choice on how to interpret that. It has already energized my picture taking, I’m eager to get out there and try something!
