Betsy Wilson - Indoor Photo Creativity

Zoom Meeting on Tuesday August 18th at 7:00 PM

Members will receive a direct link to the meeting via email. If you are not a member and are interested in attending this and other great BPG events, please contact us here.

Being limited geographically while social distancing does not mean our photographic opportunities need to be limited.  Betsy Wilson will share a plethora of fun ideas to create unique and creative images in the comfort of your home. She will also explore the world of still life photography through her unique perspective, which goes way beyond fruit bowls and flowers.   A combination of traditional still life subjects, nature’s fascinating still subjects, and a few whimsical and unusual creations, Betsy’s images provide studies in composition and lighting. Unlike landscape or street photography, the photographer is in complete control of subject matter, composition, shape, color, depth of field, lighting and presentation.  The true skill lies in the ability to take something mundane and everyday out of its normal habitat and transform it into something of beauty by using our skills as photographers.
Betsy began learning photography after retiring from a career as a newspaper publisher.  Her husband Jim gave her his hand-me-down camera and a lot of encouragement, and she has never looked back.  Her passion for photography includes a wide variety of types including macro, landscape and nature photography.   In addition to being honored as Photographer of the Year Award at the Chester County Camera Club, she has received numerous recognitions for her artistic photography including a Silver Medal awarded at the Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography, and First Place Award in Photography at the Philadelphia Flower Show.  Betsy is an active member of the Chester County Camera Club, and has given numerous presentations and led workshops for area camera clubs.
