We meet at 6:00 pm on the second Thursday of each month at Westminster Canterbury of the Blue Ridge, 250 Pantops Mountain Road, Charlottesville, 22911. The meetings are in the Monticello Room (on the second floor) and last until 9pm.  The meeting begins with a short business session, announcements of field trips, workshops, exhibits, and other activities. This is followed by a presentation that may explain a photographic technique or present photography of a certain type.  Then we hold an informal competition that includes images on a topic assigned for the month as well as photos on themes of each photographer's choice. An experienced judge critiques and judges the entries. The emphasis is on developing our ability to see and evaluate the photos and to apply those skills in our own work.
