February 10th General Meeting: Previsualization: Seeing Photographically with Andy Long

by Ellen Nelson

Noted photographer Dorothea Lange had a quote that goes “A camera teaches you how to see without a camera.” When you think about it this is so true. As photographers, we see the world a little differently than other people. This visualization is a conscious process we use to create visually impactful images, whether its landscapes, nature or wildlife.

Andy Long will walk you through the process of several aspects of previsualizing: how an image will appear after the thought process is completed with the click of the shutter button.

Andy is a Lakewood-based photographer and has run First Light Photo Workshops for 26 years. He’s spoken to the Evergreen Camera Club numerous times over the years. Learn more at www.firstlighttours.com

Join Evergreen Camera Club for Andy’s presentation on Wednesday, February 10th via Zoom for 6:30 pm social time and announcements at 7:00 pm in the Zoom meeting room.

October 14th 2020 General Meeting: A Personal Journey Towards Photo Advocacy with Scott Wilson

by ecc

A Personal Journey Towards Photo Advocacy

Scots-born photographer, Scott Wilson, dream move to Colorado in 2015 turned into a nightmare. A stage 4 cancer colon diagnosis threatened his life and his landscape photography pursuits when he developed chemo-induced photosensitivity.

Undeterred, Scott shot wildlife from the protective shade of his car and turned his new portfolio into a book – Through the Window – and a platform for his ‘photo advocacy.’

Scott is a multi-year finalist in the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year, a resident artist at the Denver Photo Art Gallery and was named “Denver Instagrammer of the Year” by Westword magazine. His work has been featured in a wide range of media, including Advanced Photographer, 5280 magazine, Denver Post, Denver Life, 303 Magazine, Denver 9News, CBS News, Fox Denver, the Photographer’s Guide to Scotland and the UK Daily Mail.
