The Mitchell Camera Club judged photos Oct. 30 for the Nov. 1 meeting at the County Fair Banquet Hall.

This month's category was "Street People (Strange/emotional)." Next month's category is "Events/Festivals." This month, the club discussed exposure and composition. The club watched a video which also explained the rule of thirds.

Ty Smith showed some of his slides from Maplewood State Park in Minnesota which displayed very colorful trees from this fall. In the upcoming December meeting, the club will discuss "White Balance." Potential new members and visitors are welcomed at all meetings.

We appreciate the use of the banquet hall and thank County Fair.
