Hey gang, thanks to everybody who came out for the night shoot on Friday! We had a great group out there, and I hope you learned a thing or two or at least had fun laughing at me and my ridiculous antics.

Anyway, there are several changes happening in the next few weeks that I want to make you aware of.

First of all, I will be stepping down as the leader of the group after this semester. =( The group has been a tremendous blessing to me personally, but I have run my course as the leader. I would love to see the group continue, but that would require someone to step up and grab the reigns. I would gladly participate in the group and support anyone who may be willing to lead it, but I no longer have the time to dedicate to leading it as I have done in the past. If you're at all interested in seeing the group continue, shoot me an email and let me know what's on your mind.

Well, on that note, the group will also be saying goodbye to two of its most notable groupies. Stuart is deploying to the Middle East at the end of this month, and Rachelle will be moving to China in a month. So yeah, that's no fun. =/

Despite all this, there are some things to look forward to in the few weeks we have left this semester. First of all, there is the Homeless Thanksgiving lunch that In Service is doing this Saturday (around noon). Pastor Joel asked me if I would pass that on to you guys. They are gonna have a nice meal (similar to a wedding reception) and they would love to have someone there to take pictures of it. Please email me if you are interested.

This Saturday evening is our sunset shoot at the Tidal Basin. We will meet in front of the Jefferson Memorial at 4:00 PM. Sunset comes WAY too early these days, but I digress... We'll wrap around the Tidal Basin from there. Bring your tripod. As the light gets lower, you'll need longer shutter speeds.

The following week (25th) we will not be meeting as it is a holiday weekend. However, the weekend after that will be our last official photo shoot, the Portrait Workshop. It will be our most unique photo shoot, and it will be positively good times! More on that later.

Now, just because we'll be done shooting as of December 2nd, doesn't mean we're altogether finished. We will have a chance to celebrate our work as we set up a second photo exhibit at Ebenezers for a couple weeks in December. We have more options for displaying our photos this time, but we really don't have any details nailed down yet. So, let me direct you to our message board thread where we can exchange ideas. If we do it right, we might be able to set up the exhibit at Mocha Hut and have the opportunity to sell our work. Let's do it up right, friends!

Lastly, I'll corral everybody once again in January for an evening of ice skating fun! Stick around, friends! We've got a fun semester to finish!

I'm sad. Boo. : ( No, I don't have the desire to lead the group. Will you still give feedback on flickr photos?? That is so helpful! I know I've been absent a lot...hope to be there on Saturday though. Karen
