April - "Visualization: Picture the Possibilities"

with Colleen Miniuk



Date: Wednesday, April 3rd @ 7PM

Location: On Zoom (The Zoom link will be emailed to members)

Description: 

When a scene excites us, we often feel compelled to grab our camera out of our backpacks and shoot, shoot, shoot! Join Colleen Miniuk for an enlightening talk on how "Visualizing your Photograph" before you begin photographing can help you make more expressive and meaningful visual expressions. She’ll share what visualization is—and isn’t—and how to approach your scenes with mindfulness, gather inventories, and translate our ideas into pixels without ever holding a camera in our hands.

May - "The Infrared Zone"

with Silvana Della


Date: Wednesday, May 1st @ 7PM

Location: Merry Room at the Duxbury Free Library, 77 Alden St.

Description: 

Do you think you’re photographing in the right dimension? Well, consider this if you dare…


Infrared photography is a journey into a wondrous land of photography where what you see is transformed into another dimension with your camera.


Infrared, or IR photography, offers photographers the opportunity to explore the world of the unseen. Infrared photography creates unique images capable of portraying things not normally visible to the human eye. Learn how infrared photography can give another dimension to your vision of the world.


Biography:

A software engineer by trade, Silvana began her fascination with photography as a very small child. The early fascination turned into a lifelong obsession. Decades later her passion never faltered, but her view of the world evolved. Photographing what the eye can't perceive is what she loves best to capture.


Master Member NECCC (MNEC) and Past President of the Stony Brook Camera Club, she is the recipient of many photography awards. Her images have appeared in Lighthouse Digest, Yankee Magazine, and the Boston Globe, and were featured in Nikon’s 100th birthday celebration. She has presented and judged at camera club councils, camera clubs, and art associations throughout the US.


Silvana helps others expand their own photographic vision through her photography workshops, photo walks, photo tours, private instruction, and club presentations on various photography topics including infrared, Milky Way, black & white, nightscapes, deep space photography, and time-lapse. She challenges photographers to consider that there is much more in a scene than what is visible to the human eye and to tap into the power of their cameras to discover it.


To her, life is best summarized by the quote “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death.” – from the 1958 film “Auntie Mame”.
