PROGRAM: "Still Life - Beyond Fruit Bowls and Flowers" March 11th, 2024 (7PM Hybrid)

"Still Life - Beyond Fruit Bowls and Flowers" by Betsy Wilson

Betsy Wilson will explore the world of still life photography through her unique perspective.  A combination of traditional still life subjects, nature's fascinating still subjects, and a few whimsical and unusual creations, Betsy's still life(s) 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 now claims he created a monster.  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 for camera clubs in many states.
