TWPC Members!

Thank you all for coming to our first in person meeting at The Glade on April 11th! We had a great crowd and a great speaker, Alex Bunch. We plan to continue to meet in person at The Glade to enjoy the company of fellow photographers and great speakers. Our May 9th speaker will be Teri Whittaker presenting the Art of Flower Photography.

The heat is sneaking up on us, just enough to get us ready for a wonderful and HOT Texas summer!!

Many activities are in the works! Mac Rodgers in doing our next Photo Deconstruction zoom meeting on April 26th sharing tips in photoshop. On May 7th, the Photo Walk is with Richard Yzaquirre showing us how to do panning! The field Trip on May 28th to Rice University photographing architecture and capturing the Skyspace during sunset is a favorite for many of us! Information for these events is posted on Facebook for you to read the details and sign up.

More Information and how to register for the two workshops in June will be announced at our May meeting. More gatherings and learning opportunities during June and July are already in the works!

If you plan to drive directly to Rice University on your own, please let me know so that we won't be waiting in the church parking lot for you.
