Club Meeting: Still Life with Lisa Jamison.

A native Hoosier, Lisa resides in the Indianapolis suburbs.   She and her husband have two adult children.  Monday through Friday, Lisa is a commercial insurance underwriter. She is also an avid reader, a nature lover, a life-long learner and a perpetual daydreamer.

Her journey into photography is rooted in the Indiana State Fair. In addition to fried foods and “exotic” livestock, Lisa fell in love with photography at the photography exhibit, however, she put off her dream of learning photography until her kids were grown.  Lisa bought her first DLSR and decided the best way to learn how to use it was to post a photo every single day for a year. That year was a transformative one for Lisa and the rest, as they say, is history!

Lisa’s favorite types of photography are nature, abstract, macro and still life.

Lisa will share her still life photos with us and explain what inspires her do this type of photography. She will also describe the equipment, materials, props and other elements needed to get started doing still life and provide tips for composition and lighting.

A fine art nature and commercial photographer, Glenn's work has focused on nature and the wild environment. His work draws on the inspiration of the landscapes of the high mountain country of the Rocky Mountains and Sierras, the deserts of the Southwest, and the wild and scenic beauty of the Pacific coast. Now living in the rural Midwest, Glenn searches for water, forests, and natural environments hidden away in the landscape. He also photographs architecture, plants and flowers, and abstract subjects.

Club Meeting: Bird Photography with Dan Miller

Dan Miller has been fascinated with wildlife, and birds in particular, for as long as he can remember. Photography has been equally fascinating to him for just as long; in fact he actually built an SLR camera in grade school! It didn’t work but at least he felt like a professional wildlife photographer! With degrees in biology and chemistry, he ended up settling in Lafayette, Indiana, and discovered The Celery Bog across the river in West Lafayette. Here conditions were favorable for his bird brain to converge with his inner photographer. He currently shots with the Canon 7D and the Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS lens and says that even the birds like to come in and get a good close look at his rig!  

Dan is one funny guy: he is an author, photographer, and world-class wilderness explorer. He publishes a daily blog, and has three ebooks, Birds of the Bog,  available in the Apple bookstore and TheBookPatch.com.
