This is the third year for the successful photography symposium, Shooting West Texas, to be held at Sul Ross State University in Alpine on September 15-18, 2011. Texas photographers share their images and philosophies while dispelling valuable technical tips. Along with presentations, the weekend includes workshops in the field and also a juried photography show. I have been invited to be a presenter, and will be talking about macro photography without an SLR camera. ‘Macro on the Go’ is for those with smaller versions of digital cameras. We’ll discuss how to use the ‘macro mode’ to approach subjects from different angles with the use of available light. At first, they wanted me to show ‘bug’ images, and now that’s been expanded to include spiders and snakes…how about flowers?

Sensational photographers presenting at Shooting West Texas are Wyman Meinser, Jeremy WoodhouseWayne Baize, Russell Graves, Earl Nottingham, Terry Nathan, Laren Bridges and Rachel Waller.

Welcome! This is an exciting year for art, and I wanted to share a few notes…from my personal learning to the influence of other artists. Here’s to the study of art and its evolution from the palette. Viva el arte, Crystal
