SaddleBrooke Photography Club is still active each week. Meetings are in the Topaz room at 9am the first, second and fourth Friday mornings. Join in the discussion and sharing of photos pertaining to the theme of the week.  2022 will still be a challenging year, but staying active in photography will help our physique and psyche.  We will meet in person to do field trips and open studios.    We are starting a Photography 101 workshop geared for those who want to learn more about their camera and it’s settings and buttons.     

There was a field trip to St Anthony Monastery on Oct 26th.  Organized by Joe and those who attended were treated to a quiet solitude photography experience.   Many scenes were very colorful and made for some beautiful photos.

General meetings are held on the third Friday of each month at 1pm instead of the morning time.    Upcoming assignments topics for   December is “Repetition” and January is Macro or Closeup Photography.

The Fall Roundup for the Arizona Camera Club Council was  Nov. 19th.  at Sun City Festival.  Mark and Vicky attended and saw a nice presentation by Amy Horn about Macro Photography which is the assignment for January ’23.  There was also a slideshow showing all the digital entries and the prints that were entered were on display.  Our club earned some Accepted ribbons and an honorable mention in the digital competition.

We had special speakers for the general meetings in Oct 21st. and Nov18th.  JP Stones had  zoom about storytelling with photos from Mexico. Kelly Presnell, award winning photographer,  from our local newspaper the Arizona Daily Star was  in person in the Sonoran room and had a fine slideshow of some of his journalism photographs.  These were varied in subject , but always had the story telling aspect.

  We are closing out 2022 and are in the planning for the next year ’23.  We will continue classes to help you better understand the different settings and post-processing needed for different genres of your photographic interests.  Also the Photo Analysis group will be meeting once a month for reviews and comments on presented photos by the attendees.

Election results are in and we have Mark as President, Dave as Vice President, Ellen as Treasurer, and Helen as Secretary for 2023. 


Below are some of the photos submitted for the weekly zoom meetings assignments.
