IMPORTANT: NEW EVENT
Sunday, April 24 is World Wide Pin Hole Photography Day! Our guest speakers for our April
26 SNAP meeting, Denny Adcock and Gerald Figal have organized a pin hole shoot as part of this event. Interested persons meet on Sunday at the Carillon at the Bicentennial Mall around 1pm. There should be adequate parking in that area. Denny has a pin hole Nikon body cap he can loan and Gerald has a couple of cameras. Gerald is also willing to process and scan B/W film.
For details you can contact him: firstname.lastname@example.org This should be an informative and fun shoot, so if you are just beginning your pin hole journey or are an old China hand, be sure to turn out. “At the meeting we’ll talk about what we shot, with emphasis on the variety of things one can do with a pinhole camera, things not easily done with lens cameras.” http://pinholeday.org/ Continue reading
A great collection of photography magazines that you should consider subscribing to was compiled and posted online. Thanks Tom Keller for sharing:
We are working to getting a list of all active members in order improve communications and verify eligibility for SNAP Exhibits. We have numerous different collections of names and partial data, but nothing that is thorough and accurate. So, we are requesting every member to access an online form and enter your information. This information will be kept internal and never shared outside of the club.
Please make every effort to get this completed sooner than later. All members must complete the form prior to submitting for the SNAP exhibit at the JCC this summer. So, don’t risk not having your images accepted in the show because your information is not entered.

If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to email me or ask it on the Yahoo message group.
Still another opportunity to see some good photography in Nashville. An exhibit by Nashville native Jessica Ingram, “Road through Midnight: A Civil Rights Memorial”, is at the TN State Museum. This Saturday, Feb. 27th, from 1-4, Ingram will discuss her work and moderate a distinguished panel of artists and historians who will speak about this very important time in American history. For more information, click here.
For our first member spotlight we chose Kay Ramming who recently finished a lengthy term as our President and beloved leader.
I lived all my life in Los Angeles and Southern California until moving to a very small town in Wisconsin. Shortly after arriving in Baraboo I realized even though my husband ran one of the biggest manufacturing plants in town, no one was really interested in me!. This was something I was not used to, so I took myself off to the University of Wisconsin to see what I could find. After trying many different art classes I found photography. Wow! It seemed like magic when the print would appear in the tray in the darkroom, and I still love seeing that today!
A great little video with the history of photography was shared by The Cooperative of Photography. Check it out…
