February meeting recap
Photographer Karim Saafir spoke about how he went from being an amateur photographer to a professional. He was a fine arts major at California State University, Fresno, so he had a very good understanding of composition, which allowed him to take really good pictures as an amateur. When he obtained a good camera that allowed him to shoot in manual mode, his photography skills quickly took off. He’s shot special events, celebrities, weddings, and portraits.

After Saafir’s presentation, the photos from the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Holiday assignment were shown, and the group did extremely well. Many of the photos were from the Kingdom Day Parade and the King Fest, and some of the group members took photos at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial at Kenneth Hahn Park. There was also a video created from a Sunday Second Line Parade, which took place on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in New Orleans. Click the link below to view the photos.
Please submit your photos for the black and white photography assignment by Monday evening so that I can make the slideshow.
