Our November meeting will feature Ben Thomas who’ll be telling us about how to stay warm and dry AND enjoy being out in the elements. The second half of the meeting will be our Photo Challenge critique by Erin Carey who did a great job with us at our September meeting. There’s a bit of business we need to attend to as well, so please be on time.
Here’s more, from the press release, about Ben’s presentation:
“It’s raining and I can’t wait to get out and shoot!” says Ben Thomas a photographer from Bedford whose primary interest is nature, especially birds. Thomas will be the featured speaker at the Bedford Center for the Arts Photo Group’s meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, November 5, at the Old Town Hall, 16 South Road.
Thomas’ love for foul weather and his preparation to deal with it is legendary among fellow members of Bedford’s Photo Group. Last April when the Group had a night photography field trip, cold temperatures sent most of the Group home after a couple of hours after dark. Thomas was among the last to leave and never was uncomfortable. Afterwards, he posted a list of clothing and equipment that he relies on to keep himself comfortable and his camera dry in all kinds of weather.
Thomas promises to share some his secrets about staying warm and dry protecting his camera gear at the same time. Included in his presentation will be information about what types of clothing and equipment are necessary for the various weather, cold, hot or dry, and what he has found about the best places to find them.
In the second half of the meeting, Erin Carey, faculty member of NESOP, will provide critiques of images submitted by members for November’s Photo Challenge: Light.
