Shutterbugs Hold Meet Up

On Thursday, February 9, 2012, these nine Shutterbugs participated in a meet up at the Village Photography Shoppe in Barnesville: Carlotta VanHouten, Charles Dukes, Glenda VanHouten, Frank Tarpley, Johnnie Ann Gaskill, Harvey Melvin, Melba Brown, Phyllis Dyche, and Yvette Tolson. They enjoyed getting acquainted with Bill Hallada and his son Will and hearing them explain about the different kinds of printers and equipment used to print images on paper, as well as various other surfaces, such as: ceramic tiles, auto tags, buttons, T-shirts, etc. The Halladas also answered questions asked by the Shutterbugs. Of particular interest to some of the attendees was the well-equipped portrait studio that can be rented by portrait photographers.

This meet up was the first one held by the Shutterbugs, but there will be more! Watch for details! Meet ups, held at various places and hosted by various members, provide lots of benefits, including:
(1)    An opportunity for members to get to know each other better during these informal meet ups
(2)    An opportunity to go places together and to photograph subjects that may or may not be of interest to the entire club. (Ex. Going to a sports event to take “action shots” or to a restaurant to practice “food photography,” etc.)
(3)    An opportunity to learn more about cameras and gear (and photography, in general) while shooting alongside more experienced shooters.
