Member Share:

  • September's Topic: Solar Eclipse Or Sunshine

  • Pick a photograph from the time of the eclipse. Shadows, the sun, people watching, or eclipse happenings for your surroundings on August 21 before noon.


    If you did not get a shot during the eclipse, share a photo with sunshine as the subject or an activity happening in the sunshine.

    "A day without sunshine is like, you know, night."
    Steve Martin

    Tips: Practice Practice Practice. Don’t wait until the time of an event to set up for the first time. Go through all your gear, charge your batteries, get a couple new cards, and above all, don't forget to have fun doing it. If you are relaxed and find fun in your photography, you will at least make great memories.
