Exploring Simpsonwood

Simpsonwood Park -- Photo by Bob Chadwick

To check out Simpsonwood Park as a potential club shoot location Bob Chadwick, David Dunagan, and Ludwig Keck took a short stroll around the site.

The park adjoins the Chattahoochee River. The banks are steep and on “explore” day the river was high and fast, not attractive to bird life on the water.

Use Concert Photography to Hone Your Skills

Ludwig Keck

Whatever our genre of art, we always strive to improve our skills. We rarely think that photographing family and friends is an exercise of our best abilities. If the techniques have become second nature from practice, our photos even in everyday situations will show our “talent”.

Essentials

Essentials in My Camera Bag

Emily Winshaw

When it comes to camera bags, everybody has their own unique collection of gear and supplies. Four of my items may seem rather unusual to you. They are not photo gear or accessories but to me they are essential:

Festival Photography

Gateway International Food and Music Festival 2017

Festival Photography

Festival are fun – there is food, entertainment, art, and much more. For photographers it is a cornucopia of photo opportunities. Street photography along the midway and the nooks and crannies with visitors, vendors, and performers enjoying their day. Dancers and musicians are great  subjects for interpretive imagery. There is art and food. It just goes on and may seem overwhelming.

Street Photography and Why I Love It

Peter Molloy

So many photographers are introverted. I’ve always been quite shy. I put up a good appearance at seeming to be outgoing, but at my core, I’m most comfortable being in peace and solitude.

That’s what makes Street Photography so exciting; it pushes me to get out of my comfort zone. I have to risk approaching people, then face the possibility of rejection and even the potential of a less than favorable reaction. But the reward is that I occasionally get a photograph that tells a story.

Jones Bridge Park

Down by the River

“Down by the River”

The first outing in 2018 took the Peachtree Corners Photography Club “Down by the River” at Jones Bridge Park.

We gathered just a little after sunrise for a photo walk by the Chattahoochee river. Our host and guide for this outing was David Dunagan. Thirteen participants was a good turn-out for this first photo shoot of the year.
