Audubon Nature Center


Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

Cathy Abers-Kimball, club president will present “Direct the Viewer’s Eye” and explain how to use composition to direct the eyes of the observer.

An illustrated discussion on 22 common landscape mistakes will reinforce the above ideas in the 15-minute tech portion of the meeting.

“Perspective from Repeating Patterns” and “Cropping” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. Repeating themes within the frame such as shapes, colors or lines strengthen a picture while echoing the viewer’s life’s experiences while cropping is an essential tool for focusing a viewer’s attention and learning to see better.

First-time visitors are welcome to visit free of charge. The annual membership is $30. Among the benefits of membership are discounts on photography classes, field trips, and the right to show photos at Club exhibits.
