Our new site is non-commercial and custom designed just for us by one of our members who also acts as webmaster (Leighton Siegel). Explore the site a bit to learn more. We hope you like it and participate actively.

The Message Board is where you can share ideas about what you'd like to see the Photo Guild to do, tell us about something you experienced or learned, did you like someone's work, have you a helpful web site to recommend? What goes here up to you.

DENGLER IMAGE spiritual and other-worldly

Barbara Jacobitti recommends this link to, "some amazing photos a friend of mine took in Alaska. He has a blog and wrote about how he did some of them. He's an excellent nature photographer and a nice guy. I think the pix and the story together are really amazing. Much of it fits into our ,"assignment", of night photography. About the 5th graph he talks about "painting the rocks" with light from his flashlight and headlamp, which is something Frank talked about as well. "
