Meeting Minutes: April 9, 2018
The Brattleboro Camera Club had their April meeting at the Vermont Center for Photography. Following are the minutes of that meeting:
Tony Downer - Guest Presenter:
Tony is a free-lance photographer and former instructor at the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Turners Falls. During his informative talk, Tony talked and illustrated his past work in fields of photography including sports, rural landscapes, portraits, "petraits", and weddings. Tony emphasized the role of imperfection in his photographic work, where unorthodox depth of field, lighting, and cropping helped create an atmosphere in the images. We greatly appreciated his willingness to come to our meeting and share some of his ideas on photography.
