  January 2023 - Members Show

The Elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire.

Every January the program is a show of members’ work related to a theme. We have done National Parks, the United States, etc.

The theme for January 2023 is The Elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
The interpretation is up to you.

As always, these shows benefit from having a lot of images to work from so feel free to send as many or as few as you would like. I do ask that you don't send me multiple versions of the same shot though. Please include your name and the corresponding element in the file name and send your files to steve@makeshiftphoto.com. You're also welcome to use DropBox, WeTransfer, GoogleDrive or any other file sharing service to that same address if needed. You can also deliver the images to me on a USB drive.

Please send your images to me by Christmas if possible.

Thanks and let me know if you have any questions!

Field Trips

If you enjoy being outdoors and photographing people, this is the photo field trip for you. The Dallas Marathon (runDallas | Running Dallas Since 1971) is a 26.4 mile foot race that starts and ends at the Dallas City Hall where you can capture all the pre-race excitement in the morning and return later for the for the finish line celebrations. The runners will be making their way through city neighborhoods to the 9 mile lap around White Rock Lake (miles 11 to 20) and then back downtown (2022 Dallas Marathon - Sunday - Graphical Map (rundallas.com). If you want to set up a chair somewhere along the route you can just sit back and wait for the action to come to you. I prefer to be at the lake where I can have good backgrounds, capture the action around water stations, and get supporters with their signs. The lead runners should arrive at the lake around 9:30 and by 11:30 you should have enough images to keep you busy for a while. I will be at Goodfriend Burger House (Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House – 1154 Peavy Road in Dallas (goodfrienddallas.com)  when they open at noon to secure a table. Please let me know if you plan to come for lunch so that I will know how many seats I need to save, thanks.

After lunch, since we will be in the area, I suggest stopping in at the Dallas Arboretum to take in the holiday decorations (Holiday at the Arboretum | Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden).You will need to make reservations online. If you can not stop Sunday afternoon, visit when you can. Evenings are extra special when gardens all aglow with lights.

If you can, send me six (6) images (1920x1280 px) from the marathon and another six (6) from the Arboretum by the first of the year for a slide show. Thanks! lpetterborg@gmail.com
