November – Roads, Trails & Paths

The AAUW Photography Interest Group meets once a month, on the 3rd Thursday from 10 AM to noon and is open to any member who is interested in improving her/his photographic skills. Our members use the gamut of cameras: point and shoots, pro-sumer, and high end DSLRs.  At most meetings, we each each share up to 4 unframed 4×6 – 8×10 prints or up to 5 digital images reflecting recent photos taken to practice a concept or theme. Our emphasis is on improvement and gentle critique is possible.

Depending on availability, most meetings will be held in the Prescott Library ELSEA Room .  Don’t forget to RSVP to both Gail and Chris to make sure our meeting place can accommodate everyone!  The Group Leader will send an e-mail reminder approximately one week before the monthly meeting.
