Print Critique Group (2:00 PM EDT)
Intended for print photographers,  you are invited to join a small group of club members who gather in an informal setting via Zoom to show a few of their photographs and receive constructive feedback from fellow photographers. The meeting takes place once a month in a virtual setting in small groups so photographers can share their images and discuss their vision. This is a gentle and fun atmosphere that promotes friendship and learning for members only. Let Jim Samanen know if you would like to attend and he will coordinate groups and sign-in instructions. You can email Jim at jamessamanen@gmail.com
Sarah Marino - Beyond the Great Landscape: Expanding Your Vision to Include Nature’s Smaller Scenes (7:00 PM EDT)
Nature photography is about so much more than epic grand landscapes. In this session, Sarah will teach you how to see beyond the grand scenes to expand your photographic opportunities, improve your observational skills, work with any kind of light, and bring diversity to your photo portfolio. Sarah will share a lot of examples of intimate landscapes, abstract renditions of natural subjects, and portraits of plants and trees to inspire you to seek out small scenes next time you are outside with your camera.   Sarah Marino is a full-time nature photographer, photography educator, and writer who splits her time between a home base in rural southwestern Colorado and nomadic traveling in an Airstream trailer. Sarah’s portfolio features a diverse range of subjects including grand landscapes, intimate landscapes, abstract renditions of nature, and creative portraits of plants and trees.  Sarah’s teaching, through speaking and in-person workshops, ebooks, and video tutorials, focuses on personal expression, seeing opportunities in any landscape, photographing nature’s small scenes, and a slow style of photography focused on exploration and connecting with nature.  For additional information, please go to www.https://photos.naturephotoguides.com/Sarah.
