Special to The SUN

The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will hold its May meeting on Wednesday, May 9, at the Community United Methodist Church, 434 Lewis St.

Join us for socializing at 6 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting at 6:30 p.m. Longtime photographers and those just starting out are welcome.

The Photography Club normally meets the second Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the fellowship room of the Methodist Church.

Our speaker this month will be Photography Club president Andy Butler. He will discuss techniques for night-sky photography, particularly creating images featuring the Milky Way. Topics will include techniques for planning night landscapes featuring the Milky Way, photographing these scenes in single and multiple images and processing the final images.

Photography Club members may bring up to 10 images on a flash drive to share and discuss with the group.

Photography enthusiasts at all levels of ability are invited to attend club meetings at no charge for the first meeting. If interested, you are invited to join for annual dues of $25 for individuals or $35 for a family membership.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Butler at (512) 581-1470 or visit our website,
