Members presenting various avenues for selling photographs will be the program at the next Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting.
On Thursday, member Cathleen Abers-Kimball will lead a varied discussion on ways to make some money from photography. At the 6:30 p.m. meeting, she will discuss the aspects of selling photos online through microstock photo bank sites. Abers-Kimball is the primary graphic designer at 2ndLook Graphic Design in Jamestown.
Several other members will add their experiences with selling photos in venues such as consignment shops, restaurant and gallery exhibits, outdoor street fairs and even an at-home portrait studio.
Selling photos will be the subject at the Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting on Thursday. Pictured above is Cathleen Abers-Kimball’s photograph of a honey bee on a globe thistle.
"Diamond Crop" is the theme for the project time that follows the speakers, building on the October project time on how to do this crop in imaging programs. The unconventional crop can create lively compositions.
Panoramic cropping is the technical "Camera Corner" part of the meeting. The camera corner will continue a series of ideas to get members to think imaginatively.
A social time follows the program and will include a previewing device for better seeing of picture cropping effects on one's computer monitor.
Visitors are asked to pay $5 that can be applied toward the annual membership of $30 if application is made by the next meeting. Among the benefits of membership are discounts on photography classes, special gifts and giveaways from sponsors, field trips, and the right to show photos at club exhibits.
The Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meets at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary at 1600 Riverside Road.
