The UMRA Photo Club is open to all UMRA members who have an interest in photography. We welcome photographers of all abilities. Most of us are struggling amateurs who like to take pictures and want to get better. We benefit from the kind help we get from each other.
We met monthly to share photos and talk about different aspects of photography. From time to time we met for a photography shoot somewhere in the Twin Cities. Recent shoots have been at the Como Zoo and Conservatory, along the Green Line in St. Paul, the Minneapolis Farmers Market and at the newly refurbished State Capitol.
Recent discussions and demonstrations have included photo books, restoring old photographs, and video tutorials on different aspects of photography.
There is also active sharing of web resources on photography by members of the Photo Club.
For the 2017-18 academic year we will be meeting on the second Tuesday of each month from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm at the St. Anthony branch of the Hennepin County Library in the small shopping center at St Anthony and New Brighton Blvds. A number of attendees gather for lunch before the meeting at the Great Dragon, across the parking lot from the library.
