Hello! Our next club photo event at America's Packard Museum, has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 2nd, at 1:00 PM. The address is 420 S. Ludlow in Dayton. Tickets are $15 and $10 for 65 or older.

Their photography rules are as follows - "Photography is permitted without a flash, for private, noncommercial use only. Resulting photographs must not be published, sold or otherwise used commercially." Tripods are allowed but just be mindful of your surroundings. Hope to see you there!!!  

Note - This could be a chance to capture some reflections shots for our competition theme in March. 

MARCH PROGRAMSTREET PHOTOGRAPHYWe hear these words all the time but what is street photography?  Join us as Stephen Goldberg discusses the art of capturing candid moments of everyday life in public spaces, often emphasizing the spontaneity and authenticity of human experiences.  Learn the important differences between being a street photographer or a photojournalist. What qualifies as Street photography? Are you allowed to take photos anywhere?  What’s in and what’s out of bounds?  

Stephen is a member of the Focus Photo Club and most of his photography is centered around his travels to different parts of the world with his wife Marsha. In going through his library of photos, he realized that quite a bit of his image captures were relevant to this meeting's topic.  Stephen plans to augment his discussion with loads of photos taken "in the streets" around the world.
