On Tuesday, September 25. the Landlovers Photography Club met to start our 2018-2019 season. We had a great turnout, including a number of new members. Welcome!
Our guest speaker was Lynne Daley, an award-winning local photographer and Food Blogger who specializes in photos of food and still life arrangements. Her beautiful photos made us all hungry!
Lynne’s talk was a perfect lead-in to our first Monthly Photo Assignment, “Fabulous Food!”. Take a look at our Photo Gallery to see the creative work our members did on a wide variety of food images.
For those not familiar with our club, for the last five years The Landlovers Photography Club has been helping our members, who range from beginners to experts, improve their skills and enjoy photography in a friendly, supportive group. To join us, you must first be a member of The Landings Landlovers. Once you join Landlovers, you can join our club for just $20 for the year, which goes to special events, group outings, and photography resources that any of our members can use for free.

Our photo assignment for this month was “New Perspectives”. When looking for interesting images to photograph, it is important to realize that the best shots are not always in front of you. They are often behind you, to the side, or over your head. So to help hone their photographer’s eye, we asked our members to take pictures from unusual angles or perspectives, e.g., different vantage points; shooting from below or underneath a subject; shooting from above or on top of a subject; shooting from behind instead of head-on; shooting from ground level; etc.. In other words, just go out there, be observant and be creative. We think you will agree that they came up with some very interesting results.
This month, our members were asked to submit photos that were NOT taken on Skidaway Island. They were told to look for interesting, different and creative images; images that told a story. So, from the north side of the Skidaway Bridge to Cambodia, we think you’ll agree that our members did capture some wonderful images “across the bridge”.
This month’s assignment was to submit a photo that either tells a story or for which there is an interesting story about how the photo came to be taken. I think you’ll agree that our members’ photos tell some very interesting stories…
This month’s assignment was to submit photos where the color red is an integral element of the image or contributes to the overall artistic impact of the image. Lots of interesting and different photos from our members.
