Next Meeting: Thursday, Sept 13 - Club Speaker: Lorraine Shannon

Topic: Street Smarts: What you need to know to be a street photographer

 

Street photography is recording slices of life in public places. It usually features people and is not limited to the street. Lorraine will take you through the process of what it takes to be a street photographer. She’ll cover her photo equipment, technique, what to look for while out shooting, and how to shoot even if you’re afraid of photographing people. She’ll cover the elements of design, color vs. b/w and a bit on post processing street images.

 

About Lorraine

I use photography as a creative outlet. Diving back into the art thirteen years ago, it has brought an added joy to my life. Meeting others who also enjoy photography, attending outings with photography clubs, learning from professionals in the industry, and paging through printed and online material have all contributed to my knowledge of the subject. I find it rewarding to capture images not often seen. I'm amazed at what life has to offer if we just take time to look, and feel fortunate to be able to share with others the things I see.

Winner, Award of Merit

PSA Nature Division Round 3

I like to photograph a variety of subjects including old stuff, dogs, cars and urban decay, and enjoy street photography, macro photography and portraiture.

 

I'm the President of Charlotte Camera Club and a member of several other photography organizations. I am the recipient of two Awards of Merit from the Photographic Society of America’s (PSA) Interclub Competition. In addition, I have been a BetterPhoto.com finalist on numerous occasions, a few of my photos have been featured as the BetterPhoto.com ‘Photo of the Day’, and one of my images was awarded 2nd place by BetterPhoto.com. My image, "Luminescence", was awarded "2015 Photo of the Year" by Charlotte Camera Club. I've been a presenter at several camera clubs and Western North Carolina FotoFest.

Home is Charlotte, NC. When I'm not out taking photos or working at my part-time job as an Executive Assistant, I can be found spending time with my family, walking the dog, working in the yard, or sipping wine with family or friends.
