Photography Field Trips
The Gaithersburg Camera Club has launched a series of single day photography field trips that are within an easy drive from our hometown. Members with any level of experience are free to join us at a variety of locations.

LIGHT PAINTING, PARK MILLS, MD - 9/25/2016 or 10/1/2016
 "Light painting is all about experimentation, your own sense of style and creativity.

Join us for one of two consecutive weekend evening field trips: Sunday, September 25th, or Saturday, October 1st, for the fun experience of light painting night photography.

Our subjects will be an old truck and abandoned building located in a quiet neighborhood in Park Mills, MD, which is located about 30 minutes north of Gaithersburg. Two outings are planned because space is limited, both for parking and for setting up tripods; therefore, we must keep the size of each group to 5-6.  We expect to be there about two hours.
Carpooling is necessary as there is limited parking.
