Four members presenting their favorite images will be the program at the next Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting.
On Thursday, July 12, members Ann Follett, Terry Lorenc, Suzette Paduano and Edie Wall will present and talk about some of their favorite photographs and how they were taken. At the 7 p.m. meeting, they will describe how the shots were approached, techniques used and any post-shot treatment in the digital darkroom.
These four members have been shooting for years; all enjoy exploring the great outdoors and have different directions in outdoor photography. Their favorite images range from flowers and macro work to landscape and long telephoto bird photography.
“Members’ Favorite Images” will be the subject at the Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting on Thursday, July 12. Pictured above is Edie Wall’s photograph of Hens and Chicks from her backyard garden.
"Low camera height," where the camera is held no higher than one's knee, is the topic for the image critique that begins at 6:30 p.m. This camera position requires the photographer to think differently, not only compositionally with subject selection but also in camera handling issues.
Member Don Armstrong will present his favorite photography-related websites in the technical "Camera Corner" part of the meeting. There are camera how-to, image forums, competition and general information sites on his list.
A social time follows the program.
Visitors are asked to pay $5 that can be applied toward the annual membership of $25 if application is made by the next meeting.
