As we enter into the rainy season you may notice that there are fewer photography field trips, but that opens the door to more indoor activities and events. In the next few months, we have a photo presentation, two workshops, and  several indoor photography urban adventures to keep you busy.

Photography Education

Night Photography - October 8

This workshop will cover techniques on taking photos of the Seattle Great Wheel at night when it’s lit up with colors. Apply these skills to photographing neon lights, the waterfront at night, light paintings, star trails, and the full moon. This workshop will include a lecture, three field trips to practice what you learned, and a photo critique session.

Photography Events

Behind the Shot: Birding in the Cloud Forest of Western Panama | October 23

Thomas Bancroft organized a trip for six Mountaineers to the cloud forest of western Panama. There, they hiked for eight days into the remote forests to look for birds, monkeys, flowers, and tropical trees. They found more than one hundred bird species, three kinds of monkeys, and many beautiful things. Their lodge rested at 6500 feet, overlooking the Cordillera de Talamanca and the Rio Colorado. Learn more about their adventures and to see their gorgeous photos at this lecture.
