JANUARY PROGRAM 2020: Chris Ogden: Essence of Place: The American Southwest


Always a dynamic and engaging speaker, Chris Ogden will take us on a pictorial, fun, and informative journey via his outstanding photography
about what makes the Southwest unique in the world and behind-thescenes stories. He will explore how we can improve our photography
through intentional use of the top 10 elements of place, moment, and light. We’ll see how to expand beyond snapshots and postcards to bring your unique perspectives to life. Come experience the Southwest’s wonderful combinations of big skies, empty roads, and vast vistas; magical land forms of hoodoos, tents, spires, buttes, arches, slots, potholes, moquis, fins, varnish, stripes, waves, and sherbets; inhospitable yet inspiring dunes, deserts, badlands, salt, craters, calderas, and malpaíses; mysterious mines; scarcities amidst torrents of water; mazes of land ownership; gnarly, prickly, rugged, tenacious flora; highly adapted critters; and “Hand of Man“ impacts (from the obvious to the implied) making Wilderness Lost. It should be fun to hear about a warm Southwest on a cold Sandhills night.
