West Central Georgia Shutterbugs in SlowExposures
Two members of the West Central Georgia Shutterbugs were juried into SlowExposures 2009, a yearly photography exhibit celebrating photography of the rural south. Linda Best and Fawne DeRosia each had one photograph chosen out of 641 entries submitted from across the nation. Linda's photo of a magnolia bloom titled, "Radiance" and
Fawne's photo of a farm chicken titled, "Through the Fence" were among the 93 photos displayed at the Historic Candler Field Museum in Williamson, Georgia. Since 2003, SlowExposures has attracted many photography lovers to rural Pike County and has raised funds for the Pike Historic Preservation.
The WCG Shutterbugs are always on the lookout to promote their many creative skills and have created a scarecrow to exhibit in the "Scarecrows in the Garden Celebration" at the UGA Griffin Campus Research and Education Garden in Griffin, Georgia. Scarecrows from many civic groups in the area will be on display from October 12th to October 25th.
The West Central Georgia Shutterbugs will meet on Tuesday, October 13th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Thomaston-Upson Arts Council (TUAC) Gallery and Gift Shop, located next door to the Ritz Theater on the courthouse square in Thomaston. Photos that were entered into the first club-sponsored photo contest will be projected onto the wall so that Shutterbugs can discuss what "works" in each photograph. Conversation will center around composition, color theory, and other elements of photography.
