S.N.A.P. Notes – November 2016

November’s Meeting:

1-jan-pic-idea

Our November meeting will welcome S.N.A.P. member Richard Barrow. His topic, “Photography Along Our Greenways” is a ‘quick start’ guide for nature photographers, encouraging them to explore other greenways beyond their local parks. Richard prepares a calendar for a non-profit branch of the Nashville Parks Dept. called “Greenways for Nashville”. In the process, he photographs year round in the greenways and his presentation covers his favorite spots (and favorite parks) as starting points for photographers.

November SNAP Notes…

What a lovely, if dry, Fall this has been! Perfect weather for photography…hope everyone has been able to take advantage and shot some more great art! Speaking of ‘Art’, Emily, Wesley and David have been busy organizing our next Provence exhibit (yes, it’s that time already). Click here for the essential information you need, but hurry, time is short.

Long Exposures:

If you missed last month’s SNAP meeting, you missed an excellent presentation about “slow shutter”, aka “long exposure” photography. Denny Adcock and and Stanton Tubb discussed techniques and showed some of their outstanding work. Thanks guys for a great discussion. For those encouraged to try (or continue) with this form of photography, I am also posting two articles and a guide as separate PDF files.
