Print Critique meeting (2:00 PM EDT)
Join a small group of club members who gather in an informal setting to show a few of their printed photographs and receive constructive feedback from fellow photographers. The meeting takes place once a month at a member's house where participants enjoy some light snacks while sharing their images and discussing their vision. This is a gentle and fun atmosphere that promotes friendship and learning. Let Jim Samanen know if you would like to attend and he will let you know the location and directions. You can email Jim at
Monthly Meeting (6:30 PM EDT)
MEMBERS' FORUM -- 6:30pm "Show Us Your Best Shot" -- Eight of our quieter Club members will share one image each and tell us about it--why they took the image, what they wanted to achieve, etc.  It will be fun to get inside the head of these photographers. +++++++++++++ Our guest speaker tonight is Lisa Cuchara who will present on Focusing on the Details: Create Fine Art Photographs from Urban Exploration. Lisa will discuss the love for RUST and her approach to and experience with photographing historic and abandoned buildings, urban decay, etc. She will show techniques for wide angle and close-up photography including the use of HDR (high dynamic range), EDR (extended dynamic range), HDR-panoramas, and light painting . Equipment and techniques used to bring out the beauty and drama of these subjects will also be discussed as we show our fascination with RUST. The photos and stories aim to inspire you: inspire you to visit new "old" places and to get to know them well enough to tell their story, inspire you to capture high dynamic range images and to light paint, and inspire you to create art from decay.  Lisa and her husband, Tom have published a few books, and will have them for sale this evening for $20 each, cash.  You can read more about Lisa and Tom and  view their photographs at
Stoneleigh Gardens
NOTE: THE DATE OF THE OUTING IS NOW SATURDAY MAY 18 The property now known as Stoneleigh Gardens began in 1877 as a 65-acre estate, owned by Edmund Smith, who built a mansion and hired a landscape architect to shape the grounds. At the turn of the 20th century the property was purchased by Samuel Bodine, who built the existing Tudor Revival mansion, and redesigned the surrounding gardens. In 1932 the property was sold and subdivided: Otto Hass (of Rohm & Hass) purchased the mansion and 42 surrounding acres. It remained in the Hass family until being given to the Natural Lands Trust in 2012. In 2018 the Lower Merion School Board attempted to seize a 10-acre portion of the property, but public outcry and a new Pennsylvania law led to the School Board opting for a alternate acquisition target for their playing fields. Stoneleighs’ gardens, fields, and architecture (we will not have access to the mansion interior) offer ample opportunities for photography. Click here for website.      Stoneleigh Gardens is open from 10 and to 5 pm. There is no fee for entry, and there’s ample parking in the lot on the property. Facilities include restrooms & drinking fountains. No food is available, but picnicking is permitted. Tripods are ok if not blocking visitor access; drones are not permitted. Paths are accessible. Carpoolers will depart from the Exton Panera (151 East Swedesford Rd, Exton, PA) at 9:15 am. If you drive directly the Stoneleigh Gardens the address is 1829 East County Line Road, Villanova, PA. We will meet at the parking lot at 10 am. Please let Dean Grantham know if you plan to go, and indicate whether or not you’ll be carpooling.
