Nine Hearty souls turned out for the club’s second Skyline Drive photoshoot last Saturday, July 27, starting with a cloudy and hazy but very photogenic sunrise, and continuing through the day, capturing views from overlooks, forest hikes with many flowers and a profusions of butterflies, and a hike down a mountain to the capture Dark Hollow Falls -- one of the Park’s iconic waterfalls. Special thanks to event organizers Ryan and Kristin Wilson (front center) for a great day of shooting, hiking and camaraderie! Watch for postings of some our images from the shoot in the next few days.
Photo Fest 2019 is over now, except for that lingering good feeling from knowing the club stepped out of its comfort zone to attempt something big -- and it succeeded. The two-day event, held June 15-16, included an exhibition and sale of our members’ work, three photo seminars by the pros at Mountaineer Excursions Photography, and an equipment Swap/Sale, all of which were held on Saturday. On Sunday, our group, also led by Mountaineer, headed off to Berkeley Springs for a half-day photo shoot in this very picturesque town, known for its healing baths that George Washington once frequented. Many thanks to all of our club members who came together to make this event such a success, and to the many area residents who came by to participate in our event. We even garnered TV coverage from a local station. An immediate result was seen the next night, when we had six guests attending our June monthly meeting, with a likely increase to our membership. We’re now looking at a Photo Fest 2020, expanding and improving upon this, our first effort. Stay tuned!!
