Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering, October 24th to 26th

October's field trip is to the Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering at the Fort Worth Stockyards on the weekend of October 24th - 26th. The featured event for the Gathering is a Chuck Wagon Cook-off which takes place during all three days. The event kicks off around Noon on Friday with a chuck wagon parade, beginning at LaGrave Field and proceeding up Main Street to the Stockyards where the chuck wagons will be encamped in the lawns in front of the Stockyards coliseum for the weekend. The best photos on Friday will be around the intersection of Main and Exchange. All cook-off participants are required to dress in authentic western garb and to prepare food using authentic trail drive recipes, cooked over an open fire. It's all very colorful, and photogenic. The cook-off area is open to the public at no charge, except for parking.

We'll meet for lunch at 11:30 on Saturday at the world famous Joe T. Garcia's at 2201 N. Commerce St, just at couple of blocks south of the stockyards on 22nd and Commerce. If you have any questions, call Ray Salinas at 972-293-0609 or (after October 21st) Gary Kelly at 972-824-4106.

The Study Group program is part of the pre-meeting training program starting at 6:30 prior to the second meeting each month. We will divide members into small groups led by master photographers to discuss prints and projected images brought in by members. This is a great way to get feedback on images one is considering for the monthly competitions or to fine tune that one great image.  Groups may also be formed to discuss other topics of interest – just let us know what you are interested in.

Here is how the study groups work:

  • Session will start promptly at 6:30.
  • Bring a print or processed digital image file on a thumb drive.
  • The processed file does not need to be resized – TIFF, PSD, or jpeg is fine. You might also consider bringing the original RAW file as well.
  • Prints may be any size in color or monochrome and do not need to be mounted or matted.  If you like, you can also bring the digital file of your print.
  • As people arrive, they will be assigned to a group of four or five with a master photographer.
  • The group members will give and receive feedback on their images until 7:15.
  • If you did not bring an image, you are encouraged to sit in on a group to either observe or participate.

Remember that this is about learning from each other in a friendly environment. Please assume that those giving input have a positive intent.
