Capturing the Magic Before Sunrise and After Sunset: The blue hour is the period of twilight in the morning or evening when the sun is far enough below the horizon that the sky takes on a wonderful shades of blue—a color invisible to your eye but revealed by a long exposure with your camera. Long exposures, of course, require a tripod and other tools and techniques you may not be familiar with. The following website will give you some good pointers on shooting during the blue hour: https://digital-phot.... And to help you further, we’ll be offering a workshop on the same subject.

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your images from your peers. Want some suggestions on how you might improve an image before entering it in a competition? Having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting, composition, or editing? Want to understand more about why a judge may have scored an image as he or she did? Then you’ll find this casual and supportive meeting helpful. And, if you choose to join in evaluating the work of others and contributing your thoughts, you will likely strengthen your own picture-taking skills. Members of all skill levels are welcome, and of course you’re welcome to just attend the meeting and observe.

If you’d like feedback on your images, bring up to three TIFFs or JPEGs ( sized to 1000 to 2000 pixels on the longest side) to the meeting on a thumb drive.
