Recap from the July camera club meeting, and this month's assignment.
July meeting recap
The July meeting was pretty awesome! We started with a presentation about American Photographic Artists-Los Angeles (APA-LA) Director Desirae Lantry. She spoke about the photography workshops, exhibits, and contests that the APA-LA has. I attended their Instagram workshop last month, and I learned a few things to help grow the Standard’s web presence. For more information about the organization, visit http://www.apa-la.org.

August and September assignments
This will be a two part assignment. Part one will be due in August, and part two will be for September.
For part one, select a community event or gathering and shoot it. It can be a local festival, church service, community service event, party, athletic event. Anything that brings people together in your community. When taking photos and/or video of the gatherings, use the composition rules that we’ve gone over, and use techniques that you already know. This will be due at the August meeting.
For part two, the assignment is the same, except that you’ll chose a gathering outside of your community. Los Angeles is a melting pot of many different cultures. You won’t have to travel too far to find a community that’s dramatically different from yours. This will be due at the September meeting.
