March 30th presentation "Complex Simplicity" by Arthur Ransome

NHCC March 30th presentation 7:30pm
(Note room: 6th floor Common, not the usual CAC)

"Complex Simplicity" by Arthur Ransome

The role of the photographer is to distill the complex scene in front of them to one of simplicity that recreates the vision and emotional experience. Black and White photography removes the distraction of color if it is not an important part of the story being told. In this presentation we will peek into the technical and emotional "toolboxes"  available to the photographer to recreate vision and emotion in the images we create in our attempt to emphasize the story we want to tell.

March 9 Paul Peterson presents "Travel to Italy, Spain, and Portugal"

March 9 Paul Peterson presents "Travel to Italy, Spain, and Portugal"

Paul and Carmel Peterson took two trips to Europe in successive years. In the fall of 2013, they went on a group tour to Italy. This included the Lakes Region of northern Italy, Venice, Tuscany, Florence, Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, and the Amalfi coast. While the trip was not offered as a photo tour, Paul was still able to take lots of photographs. He will share some travel tips and will discuss how he took his photographs and how he used post processing to enhance them. Paul also plans to allow a number of photographs to "speak for themselves" as he sets them to music.

This past fall, Paul and Carmel again went on a group tour. This time it was to Spain, Portugal, and a tiny bit of France. In Spain, they visited Barcelona, Burgos, Seville, and Madrid. In Portugal, they visited Lisbon as well as two wonderful towns, Obidos and Nazare. In France, they visited Lourdes and some small towns in the Pyrenees. Once again, Paul was able to take lots of photographs. While others on the trip may have been shopping for souvenirs, he got all the souvenirs he needed with his camera.

Join us on March 9 and check out the scenic beauty and photographic possibilities of Italy, Spain, Portugal, and a tiny bit of France. Bring a friend or two with you as well.
