June 15 Photo Club Meeting – Landscape Photography with Jon Barnes
Growing up in New Jersey, Jon Barnes was always interested in photography. He decided to seriously pursue photography when he drove across the country when he moved to San Diego. Jon has travelled a little but getting to see the vast changes that are apparent heading from East to West across the different parts of the country ignited the passion that he brings to his photography.
Jon Barnes specializes in landscape photography, appreciating its sheer beauty in color, composition, and lack of human influence. However, he does also enjoy city and architectural photography as well as simple, everyday photography of people, plants, animals, and various new places he encounters.
If you ask Jon, he will tell you he is still learning everyday about his personal style and technique. Currently, Jon focuses on making landscapes from a very low perspective. Often, this is an image make just above the ground looking outward. This point of view shows everything leading into the image and focuses on the main subject, giving a humbling feeling of beauty.
After the presentation, Jon will be available for questions, and book signing during intermission, before we proceed with our club meeting’s monthly raffle and our MemberShare.
Intermission and MemberShare – Immediately Following
After the main presentation, we will have a brief intermission where you can pay your Photo Club Membership in person and purchase tickets for our sponsors raffle.
MemberShare will occur after the intermission.
Please note: Send 5 images via Dropbox to Steve Ross. You no longer need to resize your images. Instructions are here and they cover the details of getting the images to us.
The most important changes are that with the growth of the club and increase in meeting attendance, we must take the steps of limiting each member to 5 images and we will no longer be displaying non-member images in MemberShare.
As always, our club meetings are open to the general public. Please invite your friends to join us for an informative and great evening! Find more information here: Meeting Location and Details.
Don’t forget, with your 2017 Membership you will receive one raffle ticket each month for free! You can purchase additional tickets for $1.00. Also, if you paid for your membership at the last meeting, we will have your membership cards at the meeting!
Members are welcome to display their work in our meeting room. If you have a framed print and an easel, bring it in and set it up at 6:30 PM for everyone to see!
