Monte Vista – Migrating Cranes – Weekend of March 15th & 16th

by ecc

March Field Trip took place last weekend, as we witnessed the Annual Migration of the Sandhill Cranes. San Luis Valley’s oldest visitors, the Sandhill Cranes begin their annual trek from south to north, stopping off near the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge to load up on fuel. For millions of years, the Sandhills have been spending their Spring Break in Colorado’s Valley, and more recently wild life watchers have been drawn to wonder at this phenomenal natural spectacle.

April Assignment

by ecc

Katie Taft, our March Guest Speaker, concluded her presentation by challenging our group with an assignment, which we shall use as the theme for our next critique/competition. Katie has asked that we construct a scene, setting-up what it is we choose to photograph, and for which there should be a narrative quality. For better ideas of how this works, and to stimulate our creative process, she has supplied the names of some artists who do just this.

March Assignment

by ecc

Theme for the March competition/critique will play off of our most recent guest speaker, Jacob Ware, and get us thinking along the lines of a Photojournalist. “Pictures that tell a story”… interpretation for this theme limited only by your imagination. We’re all familiar with media stories and the pictures that accompany them. There are the ones that stand out in our minds, history making, as well as the ones that are simply cute, interesting, ‘in the moment’. Have fun with it!
