LPA Field Trip to Randsburg, Feb 15 2015

Field Trips

The LPA invites you to participate in a field trip to Randsburg on February 15, 2015.  Randsburg is a "living ghost town" only an hour away from Lancaster.  Gold was discovered in 1895 with the first post office opening in 1896.  After the gold and other metals played out the town population shrank to about 69 residents by 2010.  Many of the old buildings are still standing and, while many have been converted to serve tourists, main street looks much as it did 100 years ago.  There is a general store/ice cream parlor, antique stores, art galleries, a mining museum, church, and an old jail. Off main street are many period houses as well as iconic outhouses.  Today's Randsburg is a haven for eclectic personalities as well as dirt bikers and tourists.  For more information check the internet at http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/ca/randsburg.html.

Our “Master” photographers will critique the images for composition, exposure, sharpness, etc. The images will be anonymous to the audience.

LPA members can submit up to 5 images (free) on our website. The images should be in the classification…Nature. See our website for more details on what qualifies as a “nature” photograph. Due to time restraints, we will limit the total images to 50. The deadline for submitting images is Feb 13th, 11:59pm.

The last 30 minutes of our workshop will feature a Photoshop tip from Kathy Newman. She will show us how she developed her award winning “self portrait” using many elements of Adobe Photoshop.
