“Drone Photography” will the topic at the meeting of the Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.

Justin Hanft, Chautauqua County Program Coordinator for Dream It Do It Western New York, will demonstrate drone photography with a quadcopter.

Dream It Do It WNY is a workforce development initiative supported by the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce and Manufacturers Association of the Southern Tier. Its mission is to increase the skilled workforce pipeline entering careers in advanced manufacturing. In this role, Hanft is working with manufacturers and school districts to coordinate student/teacher manufacturing tours and student internships, and promote training in advanced manufacturing career fields for local students.

“Same Subject With Different Points Of View” and “Abstract” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. “Same Subject With Different Points Of View” encourages folks to think about where they put themselves relative to the subject.  This spot affects how the foreground and background supports the subject. “Abstract” is about freeing the photographer to ignore what the subject is and simply compose an image.

The 15-minute tech talk will be a demonstration on adding a blurred version of an image to a sharp one to create a mix of real and the surrealistic.

A social time will follow the program.

Visitors are welcome to participate free of charge for this meeting. Among the benefits of the annual $30 membership are discounts on photography classes, field trips, and the right to show photos at club exhibits.
