CRESTVIEW — Sandy Connors has learned different shooting techniques, how camera angles affect composition and she's picked up some photo editing skills.

She credits the extra knowledge to attending Crestview Photo Club meetings, which monthly attract 30 regulars to the Crestview Public Library.  

The club, which celebrated its first year on Monday, now has new officers. Taking over as club president is Terry Maloney, who co-founded the club with Mira Crisp.

Crisp, who's moving with family next month to Texas, said the 60-member group has “surpassed expectations."

“I just thought we would have around a dozen people interested in photography,” she said.

But the learn-as-you-go approach attracted novices like Connors.

“There is such a wide range of skill (here),” she said. “You don’t have to be an expert on photography.”
