Wednesday, August 5, 2015 is Nature Center’s Third Photography Walk
Jamestown, NY – If your picture has everything in focus, you have an extended depth of field. If your picture has only the subject in focus and everything else is blurred, you have a very shallow depth of field. Nature photographers use both; it all depends on the situation.
You can learn more about “Depth of Field,” one of the most important elements of photography, at the Audubon Nature Center’s Photography Walk on Wednesday, August 5.
This 7-8:30 p.m. class is for people whose cameras have a manual mode so they can set the aperture and shutter speed.
The Walk will be led by Deborah Lanni and Bruce Fox.
Deborah Lanni recently retired from her position as professor and media arts program coordinator at Jamestown Community College, where she taught photography, video and multimedia storytelling. Her specializations are photography, documentary video production and the rhetorical uses of image and sound in photography/film/video. She completed her undergraduate degree in cross-cultural communication at Alfred University and her master’s degree in environmental communication.
Bruce Fox is Photography and Graphics Coordinator in the Instructional Resources Department at Buffalo State College, where he works with faculty and staff on digital imaging needs for classroom and research as well as digital photography for college promotion. In addition to a BFA in Visual Arts and New Media from SUNY College at Fredonia and an Associate of Science in Photography from Lansing Community College in Michigan, Fox has participated in numerous workshops and technical symposia.
Dress for the weather and consider insect repellent. The class is adaptable to the indoors, so it will be held regardless of the weather.
Bring a tripod if you have one.
Cost is $12 or $9 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15.
