The BooLVD, Oct 25, 2014


5:00 PM to 9:00 at the BooLVD in Lancaster

In response to the overwhelming success of last year’s event, the LPA has signed up for a double sized booth at The BooLVD event, to be held Saturday, October 25, 2014.  We will have a “Photo Booth”, with a Fall Festival/ Halloween themed backdrop created by LPA member Denis Lust, and take photos of children, adults, families, etc… in festive costume.  We have committed photographers, and are still looking for people to assist with… set up, take down, help pose/photograph, print, process payments, and promote the LPA!  Photos (4x6) will be available for purchase (no limit as to how many people one can fit into the photo), printed on site, and available for $5 each.  Last year, we photographed over 100 groups!  It is easy, it is fun!  It’s a great opportunity to take pics, meet new LPA friends, and do a good deed for your community.

Like last year, all proceeds (minus our expenses) will be donated to the Antelope Valley Children’s Center, a non-profit organization.  Last year, the LPA was able to donate over $300! Let’s beat that!

Please sign up on LPA website if you are able to participate, or contact Douglas Wade at or 661-972-2201

Refractography Workshop, Nov 25th 2014


Presenter- Bill Debley
Lancaster Senior Center
6pm to 8pm

My guess is this will be something completely new to you. Can you imagine taking pictures without a lens?

Well that is a technique that Bill Debley has developed. To quote Bill, “This experimental genre requires that I go “beyond wide open” and remove the lens altogether. My quest is to capture caustic patterns created by the refraction of light waves travelling obliquely through different media thus changing their wavelengths. Simply put bending light to form beautifully complex patterns that are magical. They evoke images of the mind and let your imagination take over. The viewer becomes part of the creation of the image. These images are seldom, if ever, viewed much less captured and presented in the form of a photograph.

Bill will show us some of his amazing images and describe his technique.

Yosemite Field Trip, Dec 2-5 2014

Field Trips

Join LPA for a late autumn trip to Yosemite commencing Tuesday, December 2 and ending Friday, December 5.  We plan to photograph early and late and very late (think star trails) from Tunnel View, Valley View and the bridges, meadows and waterfalls.  With luck there might be some snow.  (Caltrans requires that you carry chains.)  Accommodations within Yosemite Valley are available at Yosemite Lodge At The Falls and the Ahwahnee (historically very expensive).  We’ll probably plan a lunch there for the ambiance and the inside photographs (distinctive chandeliers!).  Other meals can be taken at the food court or the Mountain Broiler Dining Room.

Please sign up below if you'd like to attend.
