“The Art of Photographing Trees” with Erik Gehring -- Monday starts the NHCC 2015-16 season!
Doors open at 7pm for socializing and catching up.
Meeting starts at 7:30.
Whitney Center, Cultural Arts Center, 200 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden.

Trees, because of their branching breadth and trunk height, can be challenging subjects to
photograph. In this lecture Erik Gehring will provide tips, tricks, and photographic
theory to help you create unique and dramatic images of trees. Using images from his
own teaching library, he will discuss what features you might want to emphasize,
composition and framing, and what conditions might best complement your subject.

Erik will have copies of his 2016 Trees of Boston calendar for sale, he is picking up the first copies on Monday so they will be literally hot off the presses!

Erik Gehring is the President of the Boston Camera Club and a freelance photographer who specializes in natural landscapes.  He lives in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston with his wife Julie and sons Carl and William.  Although Erik enjoys photographing natural environments all over New England, his favorite destination is Boston’s Arnold Arboretum, and for the last seven years he has published a calendar of images taken in the Arboretum landscape entitled Trees of Boston.

Erik’s work has appeared in the Boston Globe, the Boston Metro, the Cape Cod Times, Northern Woodlands, E the Environmental Magazine, and AMC’s Outdoors among other publications, and he has shown his fine art prints at galleries throughout eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Erik also has lectured and taught classes at the Arboretum, the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, the Eliot School in Jamaica Plain, the Concord Art Association, the Hyde Park Art Association, and many different camera clubs throughout Greater Boston.  You can visit him online at
