CLUB MEETINGS

THE SECOND MONDAY OF EVERY MONTH 6:30 TO 8:30 PM

Currently monthly meetings are held on ZOOM.

We encourage guests to join our monthly meetings.  At our meetings we have various speakers to discuss styles of photography, techniques, the business of photography, photographic equipment and services. We also have a monthly Mini Contest and a Share & Learn Slideshow as well as time for field trip and workshop updates, and socializing.

Contribute to the club! Is there a subject or speaker that you would like to see at the meeting? Contact The Leadership Team with your comments and suggestions.


How to Set-Up ZOOM

Please make sure you know how to get into Zoom and set up your webcam and audio before the meeting. We won't be able to address any issues you may have during the meeting. Desktop/laptop is the preferred way to attend the meeting, but smartphones/tablets can also work. Here are some helpful video tutorials to configure and test your Zoom configuration:

MINI-CONTESTS

Each Month, members may submit two photos related to the theme for that month.  The members at the monthly meeting will then vote for the picture that best represents the theme for the month.

MONTHLY SHARE & LEARN SLIDESHOW

Every month at our meetings, members may submit a selection of photos (up to 5 photos) to share with the group.  A brief description of each photo is encouraged and allowed.  This helps us understand each other's photographic interests and learn about our travels and experiences.

FIELD TRIPS

WORKSHOPS & LEARNING

For detailed information on Workshops and Learnings, please see the Monthly Newsletter.

Workshops will be offered quarterly on various photographic skills and techniques such as light painting, macro photography, night photography, portrait lighting and post processing.

Photo Critiques will be quarterly on ZOOM.  We will have the opportunity to upload photos and practice discerning the photographs' merits using the 12 elements of a merit photograph provided by PPA (The Professional Photographers of America). 

Photo Walks will also be quarterly but in person somewhere in our local Woodlands area to explore photographing a specific technique with fellow members.

Photo Deconstructions are offered monthly!  Join us on ZOOM as one of our members shares a specific photograph and all the "behind-the scenes" of what it took to create that photograph.

TWPC ANNUAL PHOTO CONTEST

Due to the Pandemic,  the rules for the 2021 Annual Contest were amended to allow the Contest to proceed without a face to face meeting.  We are hoping to be able to do away with the Zoom  Contest and go back to the face to face exhibition.  Please see the Contests Page for additional information.
