Photo club: Observing Hidden Details

Audubon Center & Sanctuary


“Observing Hidden Details” will be the topic at the next Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting at 6:15 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

Club member Laurel Austin-Smith will lead a discovery trip inside the Nature Center building that is about finding one’s initials in the displays.  This promises to be a fun time with the hidden agenda of observing and isolating details that may be rotated or even upside down.

“The Color Blue” and “Shoot from the Hip” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. The Color Blue is about using a blue subject and finding a vantage point to isolate and emphasize the subject and so encourages people to think about the relationship of objects. For Shoot from the Hip, one keeps the camera at hip level and shoot upwards.  This gives an interesting perspective to your photos, as you don’t look through the viewfinder or at the camera screen.

A social time follows the program.

Visitors are asked to pay $5 that can be applied toward the annual membership of $30 if application is made by the next meeting. Among the benefits of membership are discounts on photography classes, field trips and the right to show photos at club exhibits.
