  • Paul Gana gave us a very information class on shooting the Milky Way and night sky. He covered what type of equipment to use, camera settings and several websites that are useful when planning a night photography outing. Paul’s website is paulscoloradophotography.com. The tutorials that he covered at the TMCC meeting can be found under “About Me” and then “Learn from Me”.

    Kinda of wishing I would’ve known that the Scavenger Hunt was going to count towards the annual score. I hadn’t planned on participating this year for personal reasons, but had I known this I would have gotten some images together. Now it’s just to late for me to get any done.

    I like the idea of incorporating as many events as possible (such as the Scavenger Hunt and PSA) into the annual score for Photographer-of-the-Year, because I thinks it’s important that widespread participation in the club is considered for determining the winner of that award. However, I agree with Jeff that the rules should have been declared at the beginning of the year.
