On July 16, 2024, Lancaster Photography Association will be having our first competition of the new year 2024-2025. Our Class is Macro/Close-Up.

DEADLINE: All photos must be entered by July 9, 2024 at 11:59 p.m.

All members are encouraged to enter. It is a great way of getting feedback on your photography and learning ways to improve. You can even use some of your images from the recent Macro workshop!

The entry fee is only $5.00 and you may enter up to three JPG images, sized 1400 x 1280.

DEFINITION OF MACRO/CLOSE-UP: Photographs of small subjects or close-up views of sections of large subjects. Think of this Class as "close up" to the subject.

A photo of a faraway galaxy appears closer using a telescope, but it is not a close up image. A close-up on a face is good, but maybe better is a close-up of an eye. This class is expecting some level of magnification. 

Our judge will be our own Helen Henry!

CYCLOPS OVERNIGHT FIELD TRIP - July 31 - August 1, 2024

On Wednesday, July 31, 2024, all LPA members are invited for a one night/next morning trip to the Alabama Hills to do some night photography at the Cyclops Arch formation. We will meet up at 6:00 p.m. on July 31st for dinner at the Lone Pine Cafe. After dinner we will carpool up to the Cyclops area before sunset (Approx 8:00) for a short hike to the rock formations. It will still be pretty warm out.

We will be shooting from about 9:00 p.m. to about 1 am that evening. Bring a hat, sunscreen, red (or very dim) flashlight, plenty of water and snacks, and your tripod and remote release. We will capture some great night time photography. If you remember, when we went last year, the arch was part of a large workshop on the night we

visited, so we are hoping to be the only ones there this time!

There is good lodging at the Dow Villa Hotel in Lone Pine if you want to spend the night. We will then get up the next day and have breakfast around 9:00 a.m., after which we will head up to Whitney Portal for some waterfall photography and cooler temperatures. If you miss breakfast, you can always meet us up there from 10:30 to 11:30 for some forest waterfall shots.

If you have any questions about the trip, call Kathy or Steve (see membershop directory for #)
