Sports, Snapshots, Shoeboxes, and Award Winning Images
Join the Camera Club of Oak Ridge on March 9 at 7:00 P.M. for a Zoom meeting when your ol’ buddy Tennessee Rick Elliott will talk about Sports, Snapshots, Shoeboxes, and Award Winning Images.
You may not consider yourself a portrait photographer, but Tennessee Rick will discuss very basic principles behind capturing meaningful images of family members, strangers on the street, action sports... and anything else that might come up. This is not really a “how to” where we focus on settings, equipment, or things you can see on YouTube. Instead it’s a discussion of the “why’s” behind portraiture . . . , a philosophy of photography, if you will.
No level of expertise is required; Rick hopes it’s a program everyone can take something away from. Knowing Tennessee Rick, he’s going to show a few photos, tell a few stories, and maybe sneak in a little useful information now and then.
Flowers are colorful, bright and readily available, so it's no wonder they're a popular subject for photographers; especially in Spring, which offers huge potential for those looking to shoot gorgeous plant and flower portraits. Whether in your garden, by the side of the road or in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park among the Spring wildflowers, this is an excellent subject for nature lovers.
To be Determined
Nature Retakes Control
Nature is the most powerful force on the planet, despite millennia of humans trying to tame it. If we disappeared tomorrow, it would take no time at all before our cities, roadways and intricate infrastructures were crawling with plants and animals. You can see this on a small scale in abandoned lots and derelict buildings. Give us your own example of ‘Nature Taking Control’ for this contest.
