September 8- Making Better Travel Photographs

In this presentation, Ron will be discussing the three main ingredients for better images, attention, intention, and awareness. In addition to images of people, places, and things from around the world, Ron will discuss what photo gear he recommends for different situations, packing for traveling, and how to make the most of travel photos. We look forward to seeing you, in person, for this exciting presentation.

 

"My work is a positive statement, affirming the beauty that surrounds us.  I find that people get positive energy from seeing my work.  In my own little way, by showing my work as often as I do, I feel I’m making the world a little bit better place to live in."

October 13- The True Photographic Process-From Concept to Completion 


The steps to achieving great landscape images. Not all great images are happy accidents; they are created through a process of research, action, review, and refinement. 
The presentation will include next-level techniques utilizing the latest in photographic equipment and editing software to produce images easily, that would have been difficult or even impossible in the past. Of course, one doesn’t need the latest photographic equipment to produce great images, maximizing camera settings and post-processing techniques mimicking the old film masters will be shown.  
We will start with how to find inspiration and the pre planning to get to the right place at the right time. The art of crafting a composition will be discussed for each image, including camera settings and any special techniques used. Also, we will discuss the finishing touches that I did in post-processing. 

 

Mike has presented programs to the Guild for many years and his knowledge is always shared in an engaging, informative manner. Visit his website at https://www.twistedtreephoto.com/


November 10- Angela C. Brown presents My Cape Cod: The Beauty of the Off-Season

Traditionally speaking ... September through May is considered the off-season on Cape Cod, and with summer being the time when most tourists visit the Cape - naturally most photographs are taken during the months of June, July, and August. And yes, the Cape is lovely during the summer ... But for those of us lucky enough to live on or near the Cape, the off-season can be the most beautiful of all."
Join Angela for an exploration of recent adventures, images from her ongoing Rock Harbor series, and images from her book project, "My Cape Cod: The Beauty of the Off-Season.

June  8- Photographing Gravestones presented by Lew Keen

Once upon a time, stone rubbings were the way to preserve the details of grave stones but today we know this process does damage and is no longer a good thing to do.  Thanks to digital photography the process of recording the stone is safe for the stones but they present some challenge. The presentation will explain how to capture the best images.  With the aid of computer software, worn details may be brought back to life and artistic prints created.

June 9th- Bill Clark presents  pho·tog·ra·phy– “Drawing with light”

During this talk, Bill will discuss his journey in exploring and developing Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) with a variety of subjects and creative techniques. As a photographer and a calligrapher, Bill uses the camera as his pen, and light as the ink, to not just take a photograph, but to draw a photograph. From basic, in camera capture, to double exposures, to Photoshop manipulation, to stunning cell phone effects, each image suggests its own unique expression.
