November 2015 Monthly Meeting

Featured Speaker: Rex & Ginna Short

Rex & Ginna Short

Creating Dynamic Images, a Personal Journey: light, imagination and technology

Program Description

For our last presentation of the year we are happy to announce that Rex & Ginna are returning to show some of their stunning images and tell the stories behind the capture.

"The anecdotal information might include where and how we got the photo and it might include how we solved issues of exposure, light, depth of field, juxtaposition or other technical details. In essence we’ll simply be sharing our experiences," explains Rex.

Team Short will emphasize that sometimes the best photos are captured at home, in the neighborhood or in the area where we live. Rex shares, "To me, it is a mistake to wait for the next big trip and/or to under estimate the potential of our immediate surroundings."

It should be an exciting way to end the year!

Ginna Short has joyfully pursued her passion for nature photography for the past 12-years. After beginning a hobby of painting in watercolor and oil, she decided that photography more suited her active lifestyle. "Travel and nature photography are the perfect combination for me," says Ginna, adding "learning behavior is as fascinating as the actual photography."
