Photographers explain how they got “this photo”

Very often, an eye-catching photo invokes the question: “How did the photographer take this photo?” ”

At the Land of Waterfalls Camera Club’s October meeting, eight local photographers will exhibit some of their work and explain “How I took the photo”.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 10. 21, and will be held via Zoom.

Sometimes a truly stunning photo is simply the result of luck, to be in the right place at the right time.

But most of the time, the truly stunning images are the result of wonderful planning and a creative mind. The photographer is often challenged to react to a unique opportunity and capture the subject or event by applying their best talents and skills.

The eight photographers explaining their work are: Robert Roffman, Gloria Clouse, Mark Finney, Terri Jednaszewski, Mike Dexter Smith, Trula Branon, Janet Brown and David Brown.

Each photographer will show some of their favorite / unique photo images and provide the illuminating background which may not be immediately evident in the photo.

It’s not just about shutter speed, f / stop, and camera hardware ID. These photo artists will describe the scene, identify the photographer’s vision, possibly expose obstacles and limitations, and detail everything they had to do to create the image.

This monthly open to the public will last about two hours.

Trula Branon took the above photo titled “Badlands”.

The Land of Waterfalls Camera Club is open to all levels of photographers, from novices to seasoned professionals. In order to provide participatory group learning and sharing forums, the club has two Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

The Capture SIG focuses on the shot and meets at 7 p.m. via Zoom on the third Monday of the month. The Post Processing GIS explores the development of the image in the final photograph and meets via Zoom at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of the month.
