Seabrook Island Photography Club: Photographing a Scene

Special Program Announcement

Speaker:  Tim Grey, Professional Photographer, Author & Educator
Subject:  “Photographing a Scene”
Thursday, March 3rd at 6:30 p.m.
Open to all residents and their guests without charge

Please join us for this opportunity to hear from Tim Grey, a well-known professional photographer.

Tim is regarded as one of the top educators in digital photography and imaging, offering clear guidance on complex subjects through his writing and speaking. He has written more than a dozen books on digital imaging for photographers, and has also had hundreds of articles published in magazines. Tim teaches through workshops, seminars, and appearances at major events worldwide. Visit his website at http://www.timgrey.com/.

Tim’s Presentation

A lot of thought can go into creating a photograph. Sometimes those thoughts are conscious, and sometimes we don’t even realize we’re thinking. In this presentation Tim Grey will share his approach to photographing a scene and to managing the resulting images. You’ll learn the stories behind some of Tim’s favorite photographs, how he makes decisions about where to position the camera, what equipment to use, and what settings to use. Along the way you’ll gain insights that may help you become a more thoughtful photographer, and that may help you be better able to locate favorite photos later.
