Experts and novices alike can share the wonders of photography together, learning from each other. Tips from the expert whose been shooting for over 60 years or watching in wonder as a 10-year-old lays on her back in a rose bed shooting up at the flowers.
The Fortuna Camera Club provides that opportunity, a reason to gather together and experience nature through a camera lens. We meet the last Friday of the month at the United Methodist Church at 10th and N St. Fortuna at 7:30 p.m. or join us on one of our monthly field trips -- all are welcome.
For information on the club you can call Kathy Blanchard, newsletter editor, at 442-6282.
