Feb. 26th – Sunday Sampler, Conference Speaker & “I’m Curious”

Happy Sunday! Another week has flown by! This week’s SUNDAY SAMPLER consists of more textures from our upcoming Creative Photography Conference location at the Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center! There are SO many cool things to photograph here for textures!

And speaking of the Conference, I made a “flip book” so you can see just how cool this place really is! Click HERE to view the book and get more details on the Conference.

This week we’re featuring another of our Conference speakers – Gerri Jones from Western New York.

Gerri became interested in digital photography in 2000 as a creative outlet.  She soon discovered that Buffalo/Niagara was a great area to photograph any subject throughout the year with seasonal interest.  She enjoys photographing all subjects and the challenge of new ways to see through the creative use of Lensbaby lenses and iPhoneography.  She also enjoys using her photographs and Photoshop to create new works of art with the application of textures.

Gerri’s images have been featured in several publications including, Nature’s Best Magazine, Erie Canal Statewide Photo Calendars, tourism guides, the Discover Buffalo-Niagara Calendars and several local commercial proposals.  Her image of Thirty Mile Point Lighthouse on Lake Ontario, won a national grand prize for the Great Lakes Photo Contest and her work is used to promote the lighthouse through “Friends of Thirty Mile Point”.  In addition, Gerri participates in several online photo contests and has won numerous awards including “Photographer of the Year”.  Besides macro photography she enjoys photographing local architecture, landscapes and occasionally small wedding venues.  She also reviews photography books for development by Focal Press Publications.  Gerri has served as assistant organizer of the Buffalo Photography Meet-Up Group to lead many members on photography tours as well as the Twin Cities Camera Club.

Gerri resides in Wilson, NY with her husband Phil, son, and Basset Hound, Thurman. www.GerriJonesPhotography.com  Instagram: gerri.gjones

A popular subject for nature photographers is photographing birds in flight. While exciting to capture that “perfect” image, it is a type of photography that results in more imperfect shots than perfect ones!

Here’s a tutorial I compiled on “10 Tips for Photographing Birds” that can help you get the desired results.
