This presentation also includes photography tips for anybody who would like to create their own masterpieces.

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
