January Meetup of the Photographers of San Angelo Group
The Photographers of San Angelo had the benefit of good weather for our monthly meetup down at the Visitor Center. The sky was clear when we got started around sunset this past Sunday and the temperature was hovering around the "just right" point -- perfect ingredients for a successful meetup. It turned out to be just that, with about eleven attendees altogether. The focus this month morphed into high school senior portrait practice. I say that because it tends to shift according to the availability of models and location each month.
This time, we were photographing Logan, a local high school student. She arrived with her mother, Kim, and got started posing for portraits straight away as photographers showed up one by one. It was a pretty dynamic event, with photographers climbing all over the rocks and paths leading down to the riverwalk area in an attempt to find the best angle. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, model and mom included. The meetup accomplished what it was meant to in a few ways... It provided a chance for photographers to get out of the house and practice their technique. It gave our portrait model some images to share with friends and family, and it generated enthusiasm for next month's meetup down at the lake where we'll have someone standing on the water!
