Topic: Impressionistic Photography: Using Creative In-Camera Techniques to Create Artistic Images
Note: All meetings will be conducted via the Zoom meeting tool until further notice.
Photographer Alyce Bender will lead us as we explore the world of Impressionistic Photography in her presentation Using Creative In-Camera Techniques to Create Artistic Images. She will cover a variety of topics including pre-visualizing scenes, selecting camera settings, in-field techniques, and a few tips on post processing these special images. She will give participants the basic tools to start experimenting on their own in the field to create unique images in popular shooting locations or with common backyard subjects.
Alyce is a nature photographer, writer, educator, and adventurer. Camera in hand since childhood, her passion developed into a career after serving in the U.S. Air Force. Her passion for wildlife and the natural environment compels her to connect others with nature through both her visual art and in-field experiences that promote conservation, protection, and ethical photography.
She is a Tamron USA Ambassador, columnist for the Journal of Wildlife Photography, and her work has been featured in both group and solo gallery shows across the US. Bender leads photography adventures around the world to help beginner through advanced photographers explore and expand their personal vision and naturalist skills ethically. When not in the field, she offers a variety of educational programs both in person and virtually for photography organizations large and small.
