February – Low Light/Candlelight

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.

 The Group Leader will send an e-mail reminder approximately 10 days before the monthly meeting.  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!  Due to scheduling conflicts, several meetings will be held at alternate locations. Check the calendar or your email reminders for the meeting location.
