The Good Old Summertime Art Fair

The Kenosha Art Association is holding its Good Old Summertime Art Fair from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Sunday June 4th at Civic Center Park, located on Sheridan Road between 56th and 57th Streets.  PhotoKenosha will be in attendance, so come down, visit with members, take a look at some of our photos and get to know us.  We’re always happy to talk photography and our membership door is always open!

 

Photo Walk

Our Chicago Photowalk is scheduled for June 11th.  We’ll meet at the Kenosha Train Station for an 8:34 AM departure.  After arrival in Chicago, we’ll take a Loop tour by “L” train, and then find a spot for lunch.  The afternoon is open—groups can split off to just take in the city on foot or perhaps hit an observation deck at the Willis Tower or Hancock Tower.  There are shoreline cruises available and a walk to Millennium Park is always an option.  Trains return from 4:35 PM to 12:35 AM.  Bring your camera and be prepared to have a great time with PKG!

Photo walk

Saturday May 14th We'll meet at Hawthorn Hollow at 9AM. After exploring that area. We will move to Petrifying Springs and check out that park. 

POTM 

May’s topic is Close Up.  Chris clarified that pictures should be taken from close range, not cropped to appear larger.  You can use a telephoto lens to zoom in if that is how you prefer to take close-ups.  There is also a 5-point Bonus next month for Light Painting.  Check the internet or PKG website for information on both subjects.  A good definition is on www.lightpaintingtools.com
