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 Leaders 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 Leaders 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 News and General Information

Unfortunately our Field Trip chairman Dick Simmons has decided to resign after leading many, many trips over several years. We can’t thank Dick enough for all the wonderful ideas and places he has taken our members to photograph through the years.

We are looking for members of the club to lead a trip or two during the year. It doesn’t have to be anyplace fancy – just someplace you enjoyed shooting or an event you know is happening. If you are interested in leading a trip e-mail Susan and discuss your ideas.
For the 2018–2019 club season two members have already volunteered to lead trips. Please see below for specific information on these two trips. Other trip information will be posted as we have volunteers to lead them.

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.

. Hope you will be able to attend some of the scheduled trips once they are planned and posted.

World of Orchid Show-Photographers Hour
November 03, 2018 8:00 AM

This field trip will allow you to photograph orchids and orchid arrangements up close and personal. Presented by the Massachusetts Orchid Society, they are having a special photographer’s hour before the show opens to the public from 9 to 10 am when you will be allowed to go in and shoot with the use of tripods and macro lenses. They will also have Mass Orchid Society members there to help you and answer your questions on the orchids. You can weave through over 20 exotic orchid displays from private collectors and Orchid Societies of New England. The cost for admission will be 10 dollars per person. They ask that we do not touch the orchids.

We will meet at the club at 7:45 am, leaving promptly at 8 am to allow us time to carpool and drive to the venue, then get in and pay. As we only have one hour to shoot we are allowing a bit more time to get there and get in so we can start shooting right at 9 am. After the shoot at 10 am we will go to breakfast-brunch at a local restaurant. You are allowed to stay longer than 10 am if you wish but you will no longer be able to use tripods and you will miss the breakfast.

The venue is the Sons of Italy Hall- 117 Swanton St. Winchester, MA. You can drive to the venue on your own if you don’t want to go to the club but we ask that you still sign up- using the online sign up in the left column of this page. The Society wants a count from us on how many will be attending. Please sign up by Thursday pm November 1 so we can give them a count on Friday the 2nd.

Equipment needed would be a tripod and a macro or close focusing lens. The existing lighting may not be sufficient for all photographic purposes so you should be prepared with a flash. You can get very close to the flowers but they ask that you do not put any equipment in the displays. You will also need money for your portion of the meal.

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.
