The Digital Photography Club of SaddleBrooke (DIGS) has assembled another great series of programs for the 2018-2019 year, thanks to the Club’s Program Director, Bill Todd and the presenters. Programs, starting in November, will include “Creating Composites,” presented by Paul Davis, followed in December with “Black and White Conversions,” presented by Byron Cotter.
The new year will start with a program entitled “Composition: No More Rules,” by guest speaker Colleen Miniuk-Sperry, an acclaimed outdoor photographer, author and lecturer. Miniuk-Sperry is a frequent visitor to the club and always presents an excellent program.
February’s program will be the club members’ “Best of 2018 Show,” a collection of photos selected by members to commemorate their best work of the past year. This is an opportunity to see lots of great photography.
The presentation for March, entitled “Travel Photography,” will be presented by guest speaker Steve Dell from the Camera Club of Tucson. In April, DIGS Member Brian Hooker will talk about his “Hiking and Photographing the Greek Islands.” The May program will be a collection of photography from the 18 DIGS field trips scheduled for this year. The meeting season will wrap up in June with a roundtable discussion of things past, present and future concerning the club.
Visitors of all photographic skill levels are always welcome. The club meets at 9:00 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month in the Coyote Room on the lower level of the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse. Many members gather around 8:30 a.m. for informal discussions.
After the meeting, many adjourn to the Roadrunner Grill for brunch and further discussions. Turns out this is a club that enjoys talking and eating in addition to photography!
DIGS was formed in early 2004, when digital photography was still “developing” at a rapid pace. Many members have worked in various photographic disciplines during their careers and are more than willing to share their knowledge and experiences. DIGS recently adopted the slogan, “Taking your photography to the next level” and this is true regardless of the photographer’s current level of proficiency.
