The Los Alamos Photo Club is hosting its 23rd Annual Show April 9 through May 5 in the upstairs gallery of the Mesa Public Library.
The public is invited to the opening at 5:30 p.m. today as well as the April 17 Club walk-through. Both events will allow guests and participants to view submitted works and to interact informally with the photographers
The show is intended to give people who live and work in Los Alamos a chance to display their photos in a formal setting. Entries are not juried. However, prints on photographic paper are expected to be framed. Participating photographers are encouraged to join the Club, but are not required to be members to display their photographs. Selected entries are published in the Club’s annual photo show book with the consent of the photographer.
Copies of previous year’s photo books will be available for viewing and/or purchasing during the show opening April 9.
Doug Coombs and Ken Hanson are co-chairs of the Los Alamos Photo Club and the Los Alamos Adobe Users Group. Photo Club meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month and the Adobe Users Group meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month.
The meetings are 7-9 p.m. upstairs in Fuller Lodge Art Center. Annual dues of $15 provide membership in both clubs. Topics vary and include discussions and presentations on products such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, other photo processing software, various software to publish photographic galleries to the web, framing, photographic techniques and more. Photo sharing and photo travel logs occur frequently. The club also sponsors occasional field trips as well as an annual presentation by a professional photographer.
