MAY 31

It’s time for another coffee break! This is a series of informal group discussions on a general topic combined with a visit to a photo exhibit.  This time around, the focus is on shooting film– what’s available, favorite cameras, where to process/print, how to scan it, anywhere the conversation leads.

Afterwards, is a viewing of the current show, Luminous Landscapes by Architect/Photographer Alan Ward. Shot on large format and panoramic cameras, Luminous Landscapes is a B&W show that explores manmade environments.

MAGIC HOUR|HAPPY HOUR SCHEDULED FOR WED, NOV. 13 HAS BEEN CANCELED.

Due to an odd confluence of scheduling conflicts, nobody from the  APA board will be able to make the happy hour tonight.  If you show up and can’t find anyone from APA, please belly up to the bar, by a drink, and make a new friend, safe in the knowledge that chapter chair Matthew Rakola will buy you a drink sometime in the near future.
