Golden Hour Shoot Recap

WOW! What a great turn out we had for our first evening gathering. Twelve members came together and thanks to the great weather we enjoyed a fabulous time out with our cameras. It was great to see Cathy G. after a long absence and Wade and Bonnie drove two hours from their summer home to join us! Now that is dedication! We welcomed Roberta to her first Miksang meeting as well.

Our topic was Flowers and Weeds. This is a comprehensive theme. Please read up on it in “Heart of Photography”. You can find it under Part Four: Flowers and Weeds which begins on page 81 and covers various sub-themes through page 91. This theme will be revisited in the future as it is so vast offering a variety of challenges.

Thanks to Colin, Tami, Brenda, Roberta, Lynn, Colleen, Cathy, Terri, Bonnie, Wade, Vaughn and Anna for sharing some of their images in today’s slide show.

May “Golden Light” Meeting Reminder

July 4

Just in case you missed the following information in the last meeting recap post:

It was discussed among the group to take advantage of extended daylight throughout the summer and gather once a month during a weeknight evening for some Miksang practice and review. The first get-together is scheduled for Thursday evening, May 23rd, 2019.

We will meet at Carole’s Catering at 5:30 pm for those who want to have a quick bite to eat. By 6:15 pm we will head out with a theme. Depending on how the group feels we can come back after an hour of Miksang practice to review images or we ask you to upload your images to the Flickr group for review. We will discuss these options over dinner and vote on the decision.

We hope to see many of you on Thursday, May 23rd!
