November SNAP Notes…

What a lovely, if dry, Fall this has been! Perfect weather for photography…hope everyone has been able to take advantage and shot some more great art! Speaking of ‘Art’, Emily, Wesley and David have been busy organizing our next Provence exhibit (yes, it’s that time already).

Long Exposures:

If you missed last month’s SNAP meeting, you missed an excellent presentation about “slow shutter”, aka “long exposure” photography. Denny Adcock and and Stanton Tubb discussed techniques and showed some of their outstanding work. Thanks guys for a great discussion. For those encouraged to try (or continue) with this form of photography, I am also posting two articles and a guide as separate PDF files.
