Various field trips are scheduled throughout the year to places in New England. Sign-ups are necessary to get an idea of how many are attending. Carpooling is generally available which is a great way to get to know other members of the club and to discuss photographic ideas and techniques while travelling to the venue.

Field Trip Policy Reminder

With the new season upon us, we want to encourage members to take advantage of the field trips that are researched and made available during the course of the season. These provide excellent opportunities to interact with your fellow photographers and to make some top caliber images. We hope that the "old hands" will take an active part in mentoring newer workers in the photographic process. We also need to remind all members that while our Field Trip Chair and other volunteers identify locations for photography and attempt to help with logistics, neither they nor the Greater Lynn Photographic Association has any control over travel to or from a location or the conditions encountered at it. All participation in field trip activities is voluntary on the part of the member and any minor member they may bring. Neither GLPA nor the Field Trip Chair or volunteers assume any
liability for any accidents or other situations which may occur as a result of a member's participation in a field trip.

Field Trip General Information
2016-2017




Field trips are a way for you to meet your fellow member photo enthusiasts in the club. Trips range from day time all day trips to one to two hour sunset trips. They are usually followed by a late breakfast, lunch or dinner stop with the group depending on the time of the trip. Members meet at the camera club to car pool, as it’s more fun to ride with a few other club members while giving you an opportunity to visit. Of course you are always welcome to drive to the destination on your own and meet the group there.

For all trips you should have good walking shoes, light jacket and cash to cover your meal and your share of gas, tolls and or park entry fees with your car pool driver. Equipment needs will be listed on the website or in the emails for the trip. Normally it a short to medium telephoto lens and a tripod.

You should sign up for all field trips on the field trip page of the website using the online sign up in the left side column. Then we have your name and contact info should the trip be canceled.

.Future trips will be planned on a monthly base and will be posted as the information is made available. Hope you will be able to attend some of the scheduled trips once they are planned and posted.

Evening Exposure-Dinner & Photography with Friends-Trip Leader Dick Simmons
June 11, 2018 6:00 PM


For this year’s last meeting night we are attempting something different. We will be meeting at the club at 6 PM to car pool and going out for dinner first. Sunset will be at 8:20 PM, giving us plenty of time to have dinner and get to a location to shoot the sunset and the stars as they appear. On that night we will be dealing with a waning crescent moon--the new moon is two days away on June 13th. Moon rise will not be until 3:42 AM so we will be dealing with a dark night sky and should be able to see the Milky Way. The exact spot for dinner and the shooting site is still to be determined but we have a couple of places in mind, so stay tuned. We will require that the participants bring headlamps for this trip to keep everyone safe.

As this trip is weather dependent we may have to postpone to an alternative date. That date will be Thursday June 14th. The moon will only be 6 per cent visible and will be setting at 9:18 PM that night. Dick will be researching the two nights and, if Monday night is a go, because the weather is good and the weather looks good for Thursday, he may suggest to the group during the Monday night shoot on June 11th, that we regroup on the 14th for another shoot at another location.

More information on shoot location and restaurant to follow as Dick finishes his research. That should not stop you from signing up now. No matter where the night takes you it’s a fun time with your fellow club members. You will need money to cover your share of the meal, any park fees and to help with your share of car expenses if you car pool.

Please sign up for this field trip using the online sign up in the left side column of this page so Dick has your contact info should the trip be canceled. If the weather is iffy, he will send an email to cancel.

Field trips are an interesting way for you to meet your fellow member photo enthusiasts in the club. Members meet at the camera club to car pool as its fun to ride with a few other club members while giving you an opportunity to visit. Of course you are always welcome to drive to the destination on your own and meet the group there, however you should still sign up and note that in the comment box so that Dick is aware you will be joining them.
