LPA Competition - October 19th at 6:00 p.m.

Our theme will be Flowers (including Wildflowers). The definition is: Single or multiple blossoms of one or more plants, including Desert Wildflowers. This is not a reality-based class, so creative images are acceptable.

The competition is now open for entries. Members may enter up to 3 images for the $5.00 entry fee. The deadline for members to upload entries will be October 12th at 11:59 p.m.

Collage of sample flower imagesOur judge will be Debbie Lefever. Debbie, a professional traveling event photographer for over 10 years, found herself with lots of time on her hands due to events shutting down during the pandemic. Every time she came home, her husband had “Welcome Home Flowers” waiting. The best way to make flowers last is to photograph them. This is how/why she also became a flower photographer (FYI – she will shoot anything in front of her lens).

After teaching several Zoom Flower Photography classes, she wanted a way to stay in touch with students. Thus “Debbie’s Flower Photography FaceBook Group” was created. It now has over 300 members…and growing. It’s a community where we share not only photos, but what we’ve learned as well. It’s a positive support group for photography addicts.

Dia de los Muertos Field Trip - Saturday, Oct 30, 2021

Death Mask ImageThis event is a great photo opportunity, many people dressed in elaborate costumes, face paint, along with music, dancing, and a great parade! The tickets are on sale now, but being this event is located in Los Angeles County there is a good chance it could be cancelled due to covid restrictions; however at this time it’s still a go! Tom Jordan strongly recommends buying tickets online, instead of at the event where the lines are extremely long. Also, parking is difficult. We plan on going as soon as it opens and stay there for about 5 hours (it’s that good). There is only one entrance and the plan is to meet just inside the entrance off to the left. Tom is open to carpooling if someone wants to join him. Sign up below!

Hello to everyone! LPA’s Board of Directors has discussed our response to California’s ongoing Stay At Home orders. We have suspended all face-to-face activities, which includes our meetings twice a month. Board meetings and webinars are being held by Zoom. We will have occasional field trips as the quarantine guidelines allow. We will let you know as soon as we are ready to resume regular meetings when it is safe and the Senior Center reopens

If you have any ideas for our on-line Zoom meetings, please feel free to contact our president, Kathy Newman at kc_newman2001@yahoo.com. We would love your ideas! We would also love ideas on how to keep our members engaged and active in photography despite the tough situation we find ourselves in. We encourage you to upload a Member Gallery to our website under Galleries->Member Galleries. We have been having occasional FB challenges in our Facebook group to encourage you to continue your photography at home. We invite you to check that out at https://www.facebook.com/Lancasterphotography/.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

Kathy Newman
LPA President
