180 Years of Photography
This year we are celebrating 180 years of photography. .. January 7, 1839 the Paris newspaper Gazette de France announced that Louie Daguerre, well known painter and owner of the Paris Diorama, would present to the Academy of Sciences a “…new discovery (which) will revolutionize the art of drawing”.
At this round table we will be looking at the work of four noted (and one forgotten) pioneers of photography: Niepce / Daguerre, Fox – Talbot, Bayard and Florence.
If you a curious about the way our avocation began, this is the presentation for you.
David will share with you some sample lensbaby lenses and explain how they work. He will also show example prints made from images using the different lenses.

Painting with light is an art that can be mastered with practice and imagination. The presentation covers a wide range of topics to get started with filming with basic to advanced cameras.
Stabilizing techniques and essential gear required for recording professional video and audio. Different formats and their purposes, lighting and setting up the camera ready to shoot.
Overcoming challenges during filming. Free resources to use in your project, editing software used.
