PROGRAMS, JACQUES WOOD
Here are the topics and presenters for the remainder of the year:

The Competition Committee has announced the 2022 Topics: Black & White, Faces, Abandoned/Decay, Arches, Long Exposure, and Round Things. My goal for programs for the coming year is to schedule presentations that will provide technical information and artistic guidance for shooting completion topics. The following presentations have now been scheduled:

Monday, May 9, 2022, 7 PM at The O’Neil School: Long Exposure Photography by Kate Silvia. You can see Kate’s work and educational opportunities on her website at: https://www.katesilviaphotography.com/

Kate Silvia is a professional photographer and photo educator based in Charleston, South Carolina. She conducts nature photography workshops as well as providing individual tutoring on mastering camera techniques.

 

On Monday, May 9, she will present a program on long exposure photography which involves using shutter speeds of long duration to create photos where the moving elements are blurred. Ms. Silvia is excited to share this amazing photography technique with our Club members. Long exposure photography can bring a new dimension to your photo imagery and open up a whole new world of creative possibilities for you.

 

We will learn about the filters you’ll need, calculations you’ll have to make, apps that can help you, and the step by step process in the field that will ensure you keep mistakes to a minimum, and you’ll make the best use of your time in the field.

 

I am looking forward to hearing Ms. Silvia’s virtual presentation on Monday, May 9. I hope you will attend either in person or by the Zoom broadcast.
