My photo club hosts an annual picnic in a local park. This local park has a community flower garden. Many of us retire to said flower garden after the picnic.
Well, this year it was very hot and humid and muggy, so only about 4 or 5 of us ventured out this year. The shot here is one that I obtained that evening.
This is an example of what a good photo club can do for you.... expose you to new opportunities and encourage you to shoot. Sounds simple, doesn't it? Unfortunately, there are some clubs that are rather boorish and cliquish and don't do any of that. I would encourage anyone seeking a photo club to visit a few clubs a few times and determine if they will suit your needs.
