Monthly Meeting (6:30 PM EDT)
MEMBERS' FORUM -- 6:30pm
"Show Us Your Best Shot" -- Eight of our quieter Club members will share one image each and tell us about it--why they took the image, what they wanted to achieve, etc. It will be fun to get inside the head of these photographers.
Our guest speaker tonight is Lisa Cuchara who will present on Focusing on the Details: Create Fine Art Photographs from Urban Exploration.
Lisa will discuss the love for RUST and her approach to and experience with photographing historic and abandoned buildings, urban decay, etc. She will show techniques for wide angle and close-up photography including the use of HDR (high dynamic range), EDR (extended dynamic range), HDR-panoramas, and light painting . Equipment and techniques used to bring out the beauty and drama of these subjects will also be discussed as we show our fascination with RUST. The photos and stories aim to inspire you: inspire you to visit new "old" places and to get to know them well enough to tell their story, inspire you to capture high dynamic range images and to light paint, and inspire you to create art from decay.
Lisa and her husband, Tom have published a few books, and will have them for sale this evening for $20 each, cash. You can read more about Lisa and Tom and view their photographs at www.photographybylisaandtom.com
