General Meeting Info

Our meetings are generally held the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm, except in November and December, or if there is a conflict. We meet at the East Baton Rouge Parish Library on Goodwood Boulevard in the first floor large meeting room. Visitors are welcome to attend any meeting. For those wishing to become members, dues are $25 per year, plus $5 each for additional family member. Each meeting consists of a competition and a program featuring a guest speaker. Members are encouraged to submit entries for the competition. We vote on the entries and results are announced at each meeting. Who wins is not important, what is important is the knowledge gained from studying other entries and sharing in the details of how those images were captured.

THURSDAY February 22, 2024 6:30-8:30 PM

How Did You Get THAT Shot?

You look at a lot of photos, and every once in a while, one of them takes your breath away and you can’t help exclaiming “How did they do that?” We’re lucky to be a club where many of our members frequently create that kind of stunning image and share it with the rest of us, and now we get to hear how it all comes together. We’ve asked a diverse array of photographers to give you a glimpse into their process, including how they prepare for sessions, capture images, and process and produce the final frame. Through this discussion, we hope to highlight several common features of the photographic process that you can use to up your game, regardless of what genres of photography you like to engage in.
