The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will hold its next meeting at 6 p.m. on Oct. 12 at the Methodist Church on Lewis Street. 

This month’s program will be about ambient light, including a discussion of exposure and how to make the most of different types of light. 

This will be a hybrid meeting, also available on Zoom. We will watch and discuss a video by National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore about ambient — or found — light and how to identify various types of light to use in different photographic situations. The video covers how to see and identify great light, which is one of the keys to making great photographs. 

Club members are encouraged to submit up to five images by Oct. 10 to share and discuss following the program. 

The Photography Club sponsors monthly programs on photographic topics and field trips to various areas of photographic interest. Longtime photographers and those just starting out are welcome in the Club. Nonmembers are invited to attend a meeting, and may receive the Zoom link by email to For information on joining the club, visit our website at
