Something about autumn provides that good feeling of memories. Hikes in the fall offer a warm auburn color palette along with fun festivities associated with the season such as a hay bale ride, pumpkin carving contests and having fun raking leaves. Our recent visit to the Sanderson Ford Museum brought back the nostalgic feel of having a coke with a smile while riding down Main Street with your gal in the T-bird.
The memorabilia this museum offers is vast; from the evolution of the phone and motor bikes to the neon signs and vintage cameras. A photographer can have a plethora of items to photograph. The collection of vintage automobiles alone can draw wistful thoughts of learning how to drive. It was a day we all talked about while having lunch at the Starliner Diner over our root-beer floats and milkshakes! Let’s do this again.
The club’s recent trip was the perfect outing to practice taking pictures. This can be addressed in the upcoming program, The Fundamentals of Digital Photography. Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the camera controls? Do you wonder which digital camera you should buy? Have you asked yourself, “Why do I need to edit my images?” or “What is post-processing?” Well, the Sun Lakes Camera Clubs’ class offers a relaxed, highly educational and friendly environment to introduce you to the world of digital photography and also take an experienced picture-taker to the next level. Our class registration is now open for our January Seminar. Contact Dan Dragoon at [email protected] to register and for additional information.
