Jamestown Audubon Photo Club: ‘Contemplative Photography’

Date(s) - Thursday, Mar 10, 2016
6:30 pm

Audubon Center & Sanctuary


The Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

“Leading lines” and “Good shots & near misses” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. Leading lines are used to direct the viewer’s eye to the focal point of your composition. Good shots follow from adjusting your shooting position and looking at the results.

Jennifer Schlick, a photographer and blogger who spends a lot of time in the woods, will give a presentation on “Contemplative Photography.” Contemplative photography is where the photographer lets go of expectations and instead gives themselves to the experience of perceiving what the world offers.

Schlick is also the program director at the Audubon Nature Center, and is currently volunteering with “Women Create.” This is the third biennial exhibit of women’s art that will be on display in downtown Jamestown from April 16 through May 11.

Finally, in the 15-minute tech portion of the meeting, an illustrated presentation on “The Inspired Eye” series of e-books will reinforce the contemplative photography concepts about the process of letting go.

A social time will follow the program.

First-time visitors are welcome to visit free of charge.

The annual photography club membership cost is $30. Members receive many benefits such as discounts on photography classes, field trips and the right to show photos at club exhibits.
