Shutterbugs to meet on October 9th

The West Central Georgia Shutterbugs will hold their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 9th, 6:30 p.m., at the Thomaston-Upson Arts Council (TUAC) Gallery, located on the square. An exciting program, “Tips and Techniques for Taking Better Photos,” is planned, as well as the announcement of which photo earned the “People’s Choice Award” during the group’s recent exhibit at TUAC. Visitors are always invited to attend the meetings and learn alongside members.
Shutterbugs have been busy. Several entered the photography contest at The Rock Ranch on September 29th, and Harolyn Castleberry received a third place award there. Marcia Fisher and Johnnie Ann Gaskill each had one photo that was juried into an exhibit at Arts Clayton in Jonesboro and are eagerly waiting to hear how their photos fared during the judging process. That exhibit, which is held annually in conjunction with “Atlanta Celebrates Photography,” will be open during October. Several Shutterbugs submitted entries to the Georgia National Fair, which will be held October 4-14th. Shutterbugs hope to bring home many awards, as they’ve done in the past.
Fawne DeRosia and Malgorzata Florkowska were juried into the 2007 SlowExposures, held in Concord during the last two weekends in September. Malgorzata’s photo received a first place award, and Fawne’s photo was purchased. Several of Johnnie Ann Gaskill’s photos have been posted on, and the editor has graciously posted this link to the Shutterbugs’ blogspot: Nine members have photo galleries posted on the web. Their names are listed on the blogspot so that visitors to the site can click on their names and see some of the beautiful photos taken by Shutterbugs.
