Professional photographer Bob Harrington led the most recent Flagpole Photographers Club workshop, “1940’s Glamour Style,” on April 7.

After a short lecture and demonstration, club members got a chance to take photos of six different models with 1940s style clothes and makeup. At the stations, bright lights and dark backgrounds were used to replicate the glamour of that era.

The next competition night will be on Thursday, April 21, at 7:15 pm, at Newtown Senior Center, 14 Riverside Road in Sandy Hook. The assigned subject “Circles” challenges photographers to look for circular objects.

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 competitions. Members compete in a different assignment each month, as well as in three additional categories: Open Digital, Open Color and Open Monochrome.

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 who come from diverse backgrounds, with photographic skills ranging from beginning novices to professionals.

New members are always welcome to join the club and may enter their work in monthly club competitions, participate in workshops, take field trips, get involved in community programs, and take part in annual exhibits.

Dues are $35 per person or $55 for a family. Students may join at no charge.
