A special thank you to Marylin for setting up the opportunity for us to go shoot at the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center in celebration of their 10th year anniversary. Marylin volunteers at Lake Lavon and through this association, she invited us to shoot as volunteers for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. By so doing, some of our photos may be featured on either their website or brochures. What a unique opportunity!
Rebekah, Marylin and I arrived about 30 minutes before the event kicked off and also got to meet Jeremy, another photographer who shoots for the BPRC. He gave us a heads up as to what would be happening and then from there we fanned out in different directions to capture as much as we could from different perspectives. It was a fun challenge and I thought I would share some of our favorite photos with you.
And as you know, Marylin is the techy one in the group and she has some great suggestions for the club that we will be implementing in the coming months. She has suggested that we start using Dropbox to save our photos “in the cloud” for easy access as well as sharing. (“Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. Any file you save to your Dropbox will also automatically save to all your computers, phones, and even the Dropbox website. This means that you can start working on your computer at school or the office, and finish on your home computer.”) As with all things, there is a learning curve to using it.”) There will be more information on that in an upcoming e-mail.
Hopefully, Marylin may find more shooting opportunities for us in the future, and I do thank her for thinking of our group in this most recent venture. So let me share some of our favorite photos with you. Click on each photo to see larger.
