Photo club to meet on Oct. 10

    Special to The PREVIEW

    The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will meet  Wednesday, Oct. 10, at  Shy Rabbit Contemporary Arts, 333 Bastille Drive.

    Join us for socializing starting at 6 p.m., followed by  the program, photo critiquing and business meeting at 6:30.

    The Pagosa Photo Club is pleased to present this month’s program,  “Mining  and Geology of the San Juan Mountains as Related to Photo Opportunities,” by geologist Steve Merchant. This will be a Power Point slide show discussion led by Steve, oriented toward photography with tips and  observations. This will be  very informative  and enjoyable for who travel around the San Juan Mountains and encounter the great photo opportunities created by the geology and  mines of the  area.

    A photo exhibit is held during each club  meeting. Two  categories are presented —  the monthly theme category and the  open category,  where any subject is allowed. The theme for the October meeting is any subject you have inside your home. This could be similar to what is known  as “close-up  photography” or  “tabletop photography” or it could be a whole room. You can  photograph a bouquet on a table or, perhaps, be more original.  Members can enter as many as three prints or  six digital images on a flash card. President Al Olson will lead the critique of  photos. It will be done as a group rather than by specified  judges.

    The Photography Club meets the second Wednesday  of each  month from September through May at Shy Rabbit  Contemporary Arts. Photography enthusiasts are welcome to attend at no charge for the first  meeting. If interested, you are invited to join for annual dues of just $20 for individuals, $30 for family, or $10 for student membership.

    For  more  information, contact Olson at or 731-9801.
