You Be the Judge - January 25, 2022, 6:00PM

On Tuesday, January 25, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. we will be hosting a "You Be The Judge" Zoom workshop. We will learn and apply the techniques that are used to evaluate photographs during the Zoom meeting.

Nan Carder will begin the meeting with some helpful tips on how to evaluate photographs and then we will spend the remainder of the time looking at various images. As a group we will critique them, finding various flaws and how they could be fixed, either in-camera or in post-processing. Be prepared to participate!

Join us to learn these valuable tools that will enable you to improve your own photography. You will come away with the skills to evaluate your own images and use simple techniques to make them better!
The accompanying photos are flawed – what would you do to improve them (click each for a larger version)? One has an inset of a corrected version.

Death Valley Field Trip - Feb. 25-27 2022

All LPA members are invited to attend a three-day weekend trip starting on Friday February 25th to Sunday February 27th in Death Valley National Park.

We will meet at 3:00 PM at Stove Pipe Wells Store to take some evening sand dune images until it it gets dark. After having dinner, we will be meeting at the Harmony Borax Work Exhibit at 9:00 PM for some Astro Photography.  Kurtis will be giving a live demonstration of how to track and take images with his telescopes.  One telescope will be hooked up to his Ipad for real time viewing of galaxies, nebula and star clusters. After 2 or 3 hours of taking some Astro Photography at the Harmony Borax Work Exhibit, we will be heading to the old Ghost Town Rhyolite in nearby Nevada, for some more night images.

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 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

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

Kathy Newman
LPA President
