General Meeting, Photo Critique Workshop, Sep. 16th


AV Senior Center – 6pm to 8pm

How are your photography skills progressing?  Want to get better?

Our  LPA masters will be critiquing your photos on August 19th.  You can submit your 5 photos for an anonymous critique on our website link. The deadline for submitting your photos is Sep. 12th, 11:59pm.

Three of our master’s level LPA photographers (Nan Carder, Don Bennett and Sue Liberto) will be critiquing our images with the goal of helping us improve our photography. They will consider composition, exposure, sharpness, visual impact, etc. The critiques will be anonymous so only you will know when your image is being discussed.

This workshop is a test to measure the level of interest of our members.  If participation is good, we’ll continue the program.

I’m sure it will be a learning experience for all skill levels. All skill levels are encouraged to participate.

Time Lapse Photography Workshop- September 23rd, 2014


Senior Center, 6pm to 8pm. Presented by Kurtiss Humphrey

Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, e.g. the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced.

We have all seen those amazing time lapse videos on our televisions and computer screens. In this workshop, Kurtiss Humphrey will show you how to do it.

Kurtiss will show many of the time lapse videos he has taken and give you the specific technique and tools needed.

Kurtiss is a member of our LPA and an accomplished photographer.

You can view some of his photography on his facebook page…

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.
