Texas Nature and Environmental Photographers (TexNEP) conducts its September meeting with a new program called “Learning Lightroom.” The presentation takes place at 7:00pm on Thursday, September 17, at the McAllen Public Library, 4001 North 23rd Street (Nolana and 23rd).

The “Learning Lightroom” presenter is professional nature photographer, writer and instructor Ruth Hoyt. She covers the basics of using Adobe Lightroom software, choosing preferences, creating a catalog and importing, organizing and editing photos. Her presentation also includes exporting photos for various uses such as website, email, posting online and print making.

The public is invited to attend the meeting. There is no admission charge to attend meetings and participants are encouraged to bring up to three photos to show and share at the meeting. Images that can be shown on a digital projector are preferred, but prints are also welcome.

TexNEP's September field trip is open to TexNEP members and takes place at Estero Llano Grande State Park on Saturday, September 19. Details will be announced at the meeting.



TexNEP members range from the professional to the newbie who are interested in nature photography. We welcome film and digital shooters. Programs each month feature a guest speaker and a chance for members to share and discuss their images with others. Also each month a selected member will display images from one of their favorite places. Field trips are planned on the weekends after the Thursday meetings to one of the many Rio Grande Valley photo hotspots.
