Tom and Lisa present, “It’s all in the Details”
Slow Down, Stop, and Explore the “everyday details” that are all around us. We will talk about our approach to capturing the intimate details of historic and abandoned buildings, urban decay, gears, old cars, rust, etc. We lust for rust. We will discuss technical, aesthetic, and creative aspects of closeup photography. The program will introduce some equipment and techniques used to bring out the beauty and drama of these subjects. The use of a light tent as a controlled lighting setup for a variety of subjects will also be presented.
