Kansas City Zoo Photo Club

October 21, 2013

Our meeting this month is Monday, October 21st at 7pm. Patrick Nabors will be giving a presentation on photographing frogs and we'll check out some of the Boo at the Zoo photos.
October Photo Contest - Australian Animals. I'm not sure there has been enough time for the Halloween scavenger hunt, and there's still half a month until Halloween, so bring those photos to the November meeting. Scavenger Hunt list is at the bottom of this email.

Boo at the Zoo - Oct 19/20th 9:30am to 5pm - We only have a few people signed up for Boo at the Zoo this year with the date change (Terry, Dan, & Walter, with Daniel & Samantha on Saturday only. Pam is now out sick with bronchitis). Everyone will concentrate on taking photos and making sure the paperwork is filled out completely and envelopes are addressed by the parents so we can mail the photos out this year. Photos will be taken this year near the Discovery Barn. If placed outside, it won't be possible to set up the lights like we planned, so bring your flashes if you have them.
