Learn and Grow
By JarieLyn Robbins
Have you ever thought about taking your photography skills to a higher level but didn’t know where to begin?
If you are new to the Nevada Camera Club, Congratulations!
You have taken the first step to becoming a better photographer.
Those who have been members for a while know the value of attending program meetings, competitions, field trips and workshops.
They are already reaping the benefits.
If you don’t believe me, just look at the quality of photos that are being entered every month.
Nevada Camera Club is a wonderful place to learn and grow.
In addition to the Nevada Camera Club there are many resources available to photographers of all skill levels.
If you are a student or prospective student who dreams of a successful career in photography, there is a wonderful on-line resource that has an abundance of information about available photography programs.
This web site allows you to browse by school type, category, type of degree and by state.
There is also a comprehensive guide to Professional Photographer Associations.
The reason I endorse this website is because it also lists an array of competitions that you can enter.
For example, there is a current photography contest that is sponsored by Army Magazine which is open to amateur and professional photographers.
First prize is $500.00 and second prize is $300.00.
So, even if you aren’t interested in getting a photography degree, it’s worth a browse.
It’s not just for students and prospective students.
It’s for any photographer who wants to learn and grow no matter what your skill level.
You might find an international or local association that you never knew existed, or you might find a photography competition that is screaming your name.
What have you got to lose?

I absolutely love this week's theme for the Friday My Town Shoot Out. I cheated though because I didn't actually go out this week and take photos. These come from my archives and were taken last September while I was on vacation, so they are not actually from my town but they are still my photos in different towns.
Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas.
A block wall with horses painted on it. Again, in Amarillo, Texas.
Well that's it for this week.
The day's come and go so fast anymore that Friday is here before I can even blink.
Hopefully, next week I'll have some fresh photos for the theme.

Happy Friday! Today's theme is the five senses. I picked out several photos for the theme but in the end I just didn't think they were good enough so instead I will post just one picture which represents all five of my senses.
First, I SEE it, then I TOUCH it, then I SMELL it then I TASTE it and then everyone around me can HEAR me say Mmm Mmm good as I devour my sweet treat using all of my senses.
Last Friday, while out of town, I scoured Los Angeles and Hollywood for graffiti for FTSO and I found some, but unfortunately, I never made it to the computer, so I will share my graffiti with you now.
My sister up at the top to the right and her friend Julie on the left.
And lastly, a not to subtle message.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hello Friday Group!
I'm a bit late posting and I'm digging into my archives once again but I did not want to miss this theme.
This is an oscillograph at the Clark County Museum.
A book binding press.
I thought these were interesting machines, especially the intertype.
For those of you not familiar with the Friday My Town Shoot Out, I urge you to visit the home page by clicking here, which is also where you will find the links to view other participants take on this theme.
Have a great weekend.

That is the theme for the Friday My Town Shoot Out.
I have been eating a lot of sweets lately.
I should have been photographing them instead of eating them.
I did manage to photograph some cookies that I bought at the store yesterday.
These are the most delicious sugar cookies I've ever tasted.
They are so lemony good.
Here's one from the archives.
This is when I first bought my SLR camera, before I even joined my camera club.
I think I've posted it before but since it's really sweet, I thought it deserved another post.
Well I could have really taken advantage of this week's theme as many sweets as I eat.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.
I'm off to the post office.

Well, by the time anyone reads this post it will be Monday all ready.
I'm linking up with the Friday My Town Shoot Out, a couple of days late but I still wanted to participate.
It was a busy week-end for me so I only have two shots for this week's theme which is the letter your town begins with and in my case it would be the letter L for Las Vegas.
Yesterday, I was out and about at a huge craft festival and that's where I photographed two items that begin with the letter L.
Both photos were taken with my phone.
These are luggage tags.
They look large in the photo, however, they are the average luggage tag size.
That's it for show, but I really had a great time at the craft fair.
I also got a psychic reading while there and it was fun.
