Monthly Meeting

The event was held on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

The Members' Forum this month is Splash, Flash and Capturing the Action by Navjot Hanspal.  He will share some ideas about photographing beauty and symmetry of what happens when a drop hits a reservoir of water. There are electronic devices to make the process easier to capture but much can be done with a flash, and cable release.  He will share his set up and some of his amazing photographs.  See Navjot's award winning photo from the October Club competition.


Our guest speaker is Larry Hinson who will present on Light as Language. Larry will discuss what makes good light in photography, where to find good light, how to create good light out of bad light, and how to create good light in flash photography. Larry will discuss and show many of his images from seascapes to portraits and discuss how the images were made. 

Larry is an award-winning photographer born in Wilmington, Delaware. His love of photography began as a counselor at YMCA Camp Tockwogh where he learned darkroom processing. He enjoys photographing landscapes, airshows, seascapes, portraits, urban scenes and images of the Brandywine Valley. He has been an active member of the Delaware Photographic Society for six years, and he served as the Projected Image Director for the Club as well as Chair of the Projected Image Competition for the Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography. Currently, Larry is Chair of the 2019 Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography.

Larry’s images can be seen at the Bellefonte Arts Gallery in Wilmington, and on his website,



Westminster Presbyterian Church

Driving to and from Westminster Presbyterian Church. Care must be taken when driving to and from the church, since it is adjacent to US 202 (on the southbound side) and this is a busy road with lots of fast-moving traffic. Traveling to the church from West Chester and the northern side. Drive south on High Street or US 202 Southbound. After passing Stetson Middle School on the right, be aware that West Pleasant Grove Road is the very next right-hand turn after the jug handle at the Stetson light (about 500 yards down). Slow down as you come to this turn, then make a right and then a left into the church parking lot. Traveling to the church from the south side. Option 1: You can come north on US and turn left into West Pleasant Grove Road but there is no light there and it’s a dangerous turn and not recommended. Option 2: Come north on US 202 and make a left onto Route 926, Street Road. Drive on 926 for 0.9 miles, make a right on South New Street, drive 0.6 miles, make a right on West Pleasant Grove Road, drive 0.8 miles and make a right into the church parking lot. Parking and entering the church. The church is a large facility and there are many entrances. We need to enter via the main entrance, which is a large feature of the church with a stone portico. You can’t miss it. Park anywhere near there; there are plenty of spaces. Please do not park in any restricted spaces. Leaving the church. To travel south, you can leave the church lot and travel south on US 202. Merge carefully! To travel north, note that you can NOT make a left onto US 202 northbound. You must do one of the following. Option 1: Travel South on US 202 to Route 926, then make a left and use the shopping center parking lot to change directions to the northbound road. Option 2: Leave the parking lot by turning left on West Pleasant Grove Road, then make a right on South New Street. New Street will take you north through the WCU campus and into West Chester. (Make a right on Rosedale to get back to High Street.)
