Monthly Photo Challenge: Animals or Landscapes

Send your exotic or domestic photos of animals or landscapes to be displayed and discussed.

Send your photos via email to  athenspg@gmail.com. You can also bring your photos on a thumb drive but please come early and find an officer with a name tag to have them added to the mix.

Note that APG is switching the Monthly Photo Challenge back as it was before. We will have the speaker, then view everyone’s challenge photos.

What we ask:

  • Limit your photos to 3 images. This is to help us get all photos shown. Any category is appropriate and welcome. You are welcome to participate in the monthly challenge or  show the group something that inspired you. 
  • Label your photo files with your name, title, and month in the file name. As an example: Martin Bozone_NC Waterfall_October.jpg. 
  • Include any pertinent informationlocation, settings, setup etc. Please include this information within the body of your email.
  • Send JPG files with a quality setting of 10, and a file dimension of no more than 1600 pixels on the longest side.

Ask Me
Beginners or veterans, come one, come all! Do you have a photography question, maybe one you’re too shy to ask in front of the group? Or you’re stuck with a question and have no idea who might know the right answer? Our own, dedicated “Ask Me!” person will be on duty during the SOCIAL TIME, 6:30 – 7:00pm. If he or she doesn’t know the answer, they’ll find somebody who does. Just look for the person wearing the “Questions? Ask Me!hat.

Something New!

Got any unused cameras, tripods, or other photo gadgetry you’d like to turn into cash? Bring it to our meeting on Thursday and deposit it on APG’s new Buy/Sell/Swap/Free table! If you want to tag it before arriving at the meeting, go ahead and label your item(s) with your name and asking price, but we’ll also have tags on hand if you want to just tag your gear at the meeting.

Chuck Murphy is in “de-accumulate” mode, and promises to bring a number of free and bargain-priced items to get the ball rolling.
