On April 17 and 18th, the Landlovers Photography Club hosted its first ever Members’ Photo Exhibition. The event took place at the Wells Fargo Private Bank office in The Village. Many thanks to our incredible Wells Fargo hosts, Chris Frohn and Nancy Cvetan.
Twenty-five club members (nearly half of our total membership!) submitted photos for the event. For many, this was the first time they had ever displayed a photo in public. We are so proud of everyone who participated in what we intend to make an annual event.
Below are photos from the exhibition. To view larger images in a Slide Show format, simply click on the first image. I think you will agree that we have some very talented people in our group. Enjoy!

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.
