March-April Art Gallery Exhibits Announced by Smyrna Library

Photo Art by Cobb Photographic Society on display through April.

The Cobb Photographic Society welcomes photographers of all skill and ability levels. The common bond among members is a desire to become better photographers. Whether your interest is mainly in capturing memories, sharing pictures with friends or family, or becoming a semi-professional or professional photographer, the club offers many ways for members to enhance their skills.

Workshops and Tutorials. The club offers member-led tutorials and workshops. Recent topics have included how to shoot flowers and panoramas, and tutorials on Photoshop CS5, Photoshop Elements 8 and Lightroom3.

Monthly Speakers. On the third Monday of each month the club hosts a speaker on a photographic topic. In the past year topics have included architectural photography, natural light portraiture, pet photography, and planning a photographic trip.

Competitions. On the first Monday of each month there is a themed competition in which an outside judge evaluates and critiques the images entered in the competition. Even if one does not enter the competition, hearing the judge evaluate and critique images makes it a valuable learning experience.

Field Trips. The club sponsors a number of field trips throughout the year. Many are one day, local trips to places like Providence Canyon, Arabia Mountain, Oakland Cemetery, and the Booth Museum. The club also sponsors one major trip each year. In the past two years members have gone to Yellowstone and Acadia National Park. Regardless of whether it is a one day local trip or a 10 day trip to a place like Yellowstone, shooting side by side with friends from the club and sharing results is an excellent way to learn.

The club meets from 7pm to 9pm on the first and third Monday of each month at the Marietta Enrichment Center

American Business Center, Building 700, Suite 702
1395 South Marietta Parkway
Marietta, GA 30067

The club's website--www.cobbphotosociety.com--provides up-to-date information on club activities and events. Hope to see you at our next meeting.
