All club members are invited to volunteer their time for this event. A sign-up sheet with related days and times of service will be made available to you for sign-up at the club meetings. Please take a look at it and choose the time and date most convenient for you. You can sign up at the club or you can email the club with your choice of dates and times. The Boise Camera Club will also participate.

Landscape photography is one of the art forms where the canvas is already laid out in front of the photographer. It becomes the challenge to make the canvas into the artist’s vision. Instructors of photographic composition say, among other things, that it’s the art of what not to include in the picture that makes a compelling visual expression.
