This past June, I had the pleasure of going out to East Point Lighthouse, in Heislerville NJ, with my local photography club to learn about making photos with star trails. It was my first attempt at star trails--as it was for most of the group, and we had a great time! We stood in the grass, taking hundreds of pictures (that all looked the same), and getting bit by an equal amount of mosquitos! Over the two hours that we took pictures for the star trails, we had time to talk to each other. Some of us made small talk, others had meaningful conversations, but we all made new friends!
I'm telling you this to stress the importance of joining your local photography club. Your local club is a wealth of information. No matter your skill level there are things to gain--information, connections and friendships! Believe it or not, I tend to be shy--especially around people I don't know, so it has taken me a LONG time to start to open up to this very special group of people. I made it a goal to participate, and now I am enjoying my time immensely.
I encourage you. Find your local club and attend their meetings. You'll be glad you did.
What Is This Page?
Since I love photography and teaching, I thought I would start a Blog page and share how I take my images, what I was thinking and about me.
