Thanks to all who attended last night’s meeting! What a great crowd we had. Welcome to the new members!

Here is what happened during the action filled two hours:

Welcome and Happy New Year

Our monthly sharing session was themed “Facial Expressions”. We received 13 submissions. Great faces, everyone!!

The hands on session covering Macro photography tips was covered by Rob. Thank you, Rob for stepping in at the last minute to introduce a few basic steps to explore. Everyone had a great time trying their hand at a few macro shots. We could have done this all night! It was hard to reign in the group. Here is the macro-photography document.
