Meetings

General Meeting Info

Our meetings are held the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm, except in November and December. 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.


Next Meeting

This month’s meeting will be offered in-person at the Main Library at Goodwood.

THURSDAY January 26, 2023, 6:30-8:30 PM
The room is open at 6PM to encourage fellowship and discussions, as well as grab some refreshments.

January’s Speaker will be Jennifer Esneault

As photographers, we’re always looking for the next shot. In our pursuit, we create so many spectacular images that we can, at times, forget the “bigger picture.” 

In January’s lecture, we’ll hear from Jennifer Esneault, who will discuss the finer points of curating a portfolio as well as planning to create a body of work versus just one image. How do we put our photos together in a way that makes sense to a viewer? How do we plan for projects and keep the details straight? How do we begin to shift the focus on who we are as artists versus the singular images we create?
