Flagpole Photographers Camera Club invites the public to its October 12 program, "Photographing Birds," which will be hosted by club member Rhonda Cullens.


Ms Cullens will share tips taking award-winning photos of a wide variety of birds. This presentation is geared for beginner and intermediate photographers or anyone who loves birds.


It will be offered Thursday, October 12, beginning at 7:30 pm, at Newtown Senior Center, 14 Riverside Road in Sandy Hook.


The assigned subject for the next club gathering, scheduled for Thursday, October 26, at 7:15 pm, will be is "Birds." That program will also take place at the senior center.


Members compete in a different assignment each month, as well as in three additional categories: Open Digital, Open Color, and Open Monochrome. While the competition is only open to members, the public is invited to listen to critiques and learn about photography.


There is no charge to attend Flagpole Photographers Camera Club competitions. Flagpole Photographers is a local nonprofit group that enables members to share their images and expertise, to learn and grow in their photography, and to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow photographers who come from diverse backgrounds, with photographic skills ranging from beginning novices to professionals.


New members are always welcome to join, and may then enter their work in monthly club competitions, participate in workshops, take field trips, get involved in community programs, and take part in annual exhibits. Dues are $35 per person or $55 for a family. Students may join at no charge.


Additional club information, meeting dates, including calendar of events, member galleries, and workshop information can be found at flagpolephotographers.com. For more information send e-mail to info@flagpolephotographers.com.
