Happy New Year

First, I would like to welcome the new Board members and thank those who are continuing to serve. We have some fresh ideas and are working to make 2019 a year for learning and inspiration. The meetings held on the second Thursday of each month will now be called “Skills Night” with an emphasis on learning. Watch to see when to bring your camera! Other changes will be outlined in the Photogram, at meetings, on the website, and on Facebook. As always, we would love to hear your comments and suggestions.

On a personal note, my New Year’s resolution was to focus on photography this year by taking a photo (almost) daily. For January, I am concentrating on macro photography. There might not be a theme for each month, but my goal is to shoot at least five times per week. Here’s what I’ve taken so far.

Another goal is to go to one of the Springfield / Greene County parks each month to have a seasonally appropriate photo to exhibit at the Botanical Center. Whatever your goals, remember to have fun! Happy shooting!
