From The Newtown Bee, October 15, 2015
While wind and trees are filling the air and local streets with dancing nuances of red, orange and yellow, the Flagpole Photographers are devoting their next meeting to a different, bygone season.
On Thursday, October 22, at 7:15 pm, members of the club are challenged to showcase their “Best of Summer” shots. The assignment’s photographs can be of anything, but must have been taken during the summer of 2015.
While the competition is only open to members, the public is invited to listen to critiques and learn about photography. There is no charge to attend Flagpole Photographers Camera Club meetings, which are held on the fourth Thursday of every month, September through June.
Meetings are held at Newtown Senior Center, 14 Riverside Road in Sandy Hook.
Members compete during each meeting in a different assigned subject, as well as in three additional categories: Open Digital, Open Color and Open Monochrome.
Assigned subjects and hands-on activity programs are listed on the club’s website (flagpolephotographers.com).
Photographs of the latest program night, “Long Exposures and Light Painting” from Thursday, October 8, are displayed online as well.
Flagpole Photographers is a local non-profit group that enables members to share their images and expertise, to learn and grow in their photography, and to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow photographers. Members come from diverse backgrounds, with photographic skills ranging from beginning novices to professional photographers. Anyone interested in photography, whether just starting out or someone who has been shooting photos for many years, can find a place within the club.
New members are always welcome to join the club. Dues are $35 per person or $55 for a family. Students may join at no charge.
