Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner and, with it, the unofficial start of summer. This means that the Shutterbugs will be taking a break from formal meetings over the summer months and will be meeting for outdoor photowalks instead. Check out our "Dates to Remember" page for a list of when and where we will be having these photowalks.
In addition, the Shutterbugs members participate in an annual summer photo scavenger hunt. We take photos throughout the summer on a list of topics and then share our photos in a slideshow at our first meeting in September. The scavenger hunt is open to everyone who wants to participate and entries should be emailed to Gail Kulp. Topics for the Summer of 2014 include: Insect, Forest/Trees, Something Old, Shadow and 1 second exposure.
We hope you have a wonderful summer and get a chance to use your camera often! Don't forget that you can share photos or photography articles/information at any time on our Facebook page!
It was a long cold winter, but spring is finally here. The flowers are blooming, the trees are blossoming and the grass is growing. Hopefully, everyone is getting out with their cameras and capturing all this beauty!
The 18th Annual Juried Show opened last night and it was a great success. The results are posted on our "Show Results" page and we'll soon add photos of all the winning photographers with their winning entries.
Our next meeting will be held on Monday, May 19th starting at 6 pm at the Taber Museum in downtown Williamsport. The purpose of the meeting is to conduct a critique of the Juried Show and the 3 judges will be in attendance to provide their feedback as to why they chose the pieces that they did.
Our summer meetings will be taking place outside of the museum this year. We will still meet on the 4th Monday of each month, but we will be taking photowalks around the local area. Our first photowalk is scheduled for Monday, June 23. We will meet in the Taber Museum parking lot and will decide on our destination that evening. Details on the date and location of our other summer photowalks will be posted on the "Dates to Remember" page.
Have a wonderful spring and summer!

We use the meetings to educate the members and promote photography as an art form. You can also check us out on Facebook under "Susquehanna Valley Shutterbugs" to see more.
