Annual GNPA Coastal Chapter Holiday Photoshoot and Dinner in Savannah

Annual GNPA Coastal Chapter Holiday Photoshoot and Dinner in Savannah

Hope you will join us for our annual holiday field trip downtown Savannah, always decked out beautifully this time of the year. A treat this year as we will be able to enjoy a meal together unlike the last year or so.

Meet at 5pm at Vicki Hardy’s gallery,address below, have a walk to the iconic Forsyth fountain and back for dinner, potentially at Little Duck Diner, or another restaurant in the area. This year we have a small gender neutral gift exchange ($25 or less).

Bring camera and lens of choice, dress for the weather and bring a face mask as some businesses require these to be worn indoors. As always, be cognizant of your surroundings.

This field trip is for paid GNPA members only. For more information on joining the GNPA, visit https://gnpa.org/membership-join-us/

I have added a few photos from past images, not representative of those taken during the field trip.

DESCRIPTION:

High key photography is a powerful, evocative and often ethereal type of photography. It involves creating images where there is a dominance of white or bright tones. For nature photography, it is a type of photography that goes against most “traditional” styles and “rules” of nature photography. It requires the right circumstances – the right light, subject, and setting—in order for the magic of High Key photography to work.
When it all comes together, the results can be spectacular! This class will introduce participants to the genre of High Key photography, which can be one of the most artistic forms of nature photography that can be done in-camera and/or a combination of in-camera and post-processing.
This video class will help you put it all together and begin photographing in high-key style! You may even find a treasure trove of images in your archives that could work perfectly for this approach!
You will learn:
• What lighting conditions are best (and worst) for high-key photography
• The settings that are generally recommended for creating high-key work
• What foregrounds and backgrounds work best for high key photography
• Composition tips for this style of photography
• Post-processing tips to create the final look

DESCRIPTION:
The Roswell Chapter is hosting this talk for all members.
Have you wanted to use that new camera of yours to take videos but have been hesitant to try? Have you wanted to capture an exciting action sequence that you can view later but don’t know how? The cameras we use today not only help us take great photos but are also great at making videos. Many of the cameras we use in our nature photography are also used by professional film makers. Please join us on November 9th at 7:30 to learn from Tom Simpson all about getting started in videography as he presents Videography 101-The Camera. Tom will explain all of the basics of how to use your camera to make memorable nature movies, what settings to use in different situations, and how to set up the camera, what type of focusing strategy to use, and what goes into making a good video. Tom will follow this session up with Videography 201-Post Processing to help you with editing you video clips and creating your own work of art.

Tom has served on the GNPA Board in various roles and is Past President for GNPA. He has also been Chapter Coordinator for several GNPA Chapters. Tom is a biologist and following service in the Army Chemical Corps his career has included faculty positions at MTSU, Wake Forest, and Agnes Scott College followed by 35 years in environmental consulting.
His photographic interests cover a wide range but are primarily around nature including landscapes, wildlife, and macro photography with a particular focus on nature video. He has photos published in the book on the Natural Communities of Georgia and the Journal of the National Wildlife Federation and has a collection of prints on permanent display at a local Uptown Café gallery.
Tom will present on how to get started with video including some suggestions on cameras and gear, understanding the parts of your camera’s video menu including basic setup recommendations for video. He will also provide a few tips on getting more out of shooting video.
