Nature photographer, Tom Whelan, will be our featured speaker for the April meeting ( 7 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, April 1, at the Old Town Hall, 16 South Road). Tom is a photographer who specializes in closeups of the natural world: abstracts of natural designs, portraits of flowers and insects, and the many forms of water. His photography has been used in displays at the Museum of Science and published in magazines, books, and web sites. He has exhibited photographs at the Concord Art Association, the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, the Discovery Center at Silvio Conte National Wildlife Refuge, the Boston Nature Center, and the Habitat Sanctuary of the Massachusetts Aububon Society. His photographs have won awards from the North American Butterfly Association and the National Wildlife Federation.
Tom’s’s presentation will cover the nature and definition of closeup or macro photography. Using his own work, he will discuss his techniques and approaches and demonstrate how others interested photography can add macrophotography to their portfolio.
This is one of those months where the first Tuesday is also the first day. So while you’re making a mental note not to let the office clown catch you on April fool’s, remember that we’re meeting that night, in case you should turn over the page to the next month too late.
