Weather or Not to Take Photos
Presented by Ron Zucker
Weather can have a tremendous affect on your photography, While we all look forward to those bright sunny days, there are days when the weather can add drama, excitement, and even calming affects to you photos. This presentation will introduce us to some shots where weather has enhanced the photo experience.
Ron likes all things photographic. He started with a Canon AE1-P in the early 80s, switched to videoography, and is now doing both videoography (Canon XHA1S) and digital photography (Nikon D7200). He loves to travel and his favorite subject is natural beauty. This will be his fourth presentation to the Eastman Camera Club.

Join us for a great program at the July 20 club meeting. Chris Duncan will be doing a presentation on equipment, techniques, and locations for photographing the solar eclipse.
On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. We are close enough to be able to easily travel to the path of totality and see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun’s tenuous atmosphere – the corona – can be seen, will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers in the Tri-Cities area will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk.
Path of Totality
The club meeting is 6:30 PM on July 20 in the Eastman Employee Center.
You’ll want to join us on Thursday, June 15, for a special presentation by Rick Harris.
Rick is a 57 year’ old art student and native of East Tennessee. He views art as a way to share his interpretation of life and the world around him with others. Though he experiments with many mediums, photography remains his medium of choice. Working with both film and digital exposure, he attempts to evoke both emotion and -inspire thoughtful consideration from viewers with the subjects he captures. Over thirty years’ experience as an award-winning photojournalist has influenced his work in the sense that he does not concentrate on one subject but photographs many diverse subjects. From the beauty of the human body to man’s treatment of our environment. No subject is too tame or too bizarre. His influences range from Michael A. Smith, Edward Weston and Robert Adams to Ogle Winston Link and Robert Mapplethorpe. Rick’s ongoing projects include American Railroading, local landscapes, and scenes of social significance. A common theme throughout his work is the repetition of rectilinear and curvilinear shape. His goal is to use his art to bring attention to man’s mistreatment of our world in an attempt to bring awareness to our plight.
Rick’s program will include a slide show of some of his work. It will include tips and procedures that he has used for success in the past and a breakdown on equipment and taking your photography to a higher level. Rick will discuss the impact of social media website on photography as well as a question and answer session on photography, working with the press and running a photography business.
The meeting is at 6:30 PM, June 15 in Room 221 of the Eastman Employee Center (map)
