Janet has been of member of Stony Brook Camera Club since 2010.  She was VP/Program Chair, and then President last year.  She has been taking photographs since high school and has been interested in Mindfulness for more than a decade.  Last December, she attended a Mindful Photography workshop in Molokai, HI, with John Barclay and Flint Sparks. This will be a hands-on workshop, so please bring your camera and tripod.  We will do exercises to help us "see" more mindfully before taking the picture.  Our goal is to take time to really look at what is around us rather than just shooting away.  This will be a chance to slow down and perhaps see something special we might have might otherwise have missed.  We will also discuss the art of writing Photoku, writing a Haiku poem to go with your photograph.

Bring your camera equipment and tripod. We will be "receiving" photographs outside on the grounds. Bring a snack if you want.

Travel Photography with David Wells

  • Date: Saturday June 3, 2017
  • Time: 9am-10 pm 
  • Place: Providence for festival http://pvdfest.com/

Making exceptional travel photographs requires skills in many different types of photography, from street photography to still life work to portraits. In a typical day of travel, a photographer may shoot busy festivals, quiet buildings, open landscapes, or close-up nature. The best travel photographers are versatile in their skills and fluid in their process, using minimal gear to achieve a maximum of results. The best travel photos are symbolic images that convey the mood of a place as they “bring” the viewer to the place. The best ones are made not from the viewpoint of an observer but rather from the viewpoint of someone who actively engaged in the event. Good travel photographs make seemingly boring things interesting, even unique and magical. You also need to be comfortable taking pictures in unusual places, which requires you to carry yourself with confidence as well as to treat your subjects with respect. For many people, travel photography combines two of their favorite passions, travel and photography.
