“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” (Marc Riboud, French photojournalist). Whether you savor life through the lens of an iPhone or a Leica, learning how to take better photos can capture a moment in ways that make it even more meaningful. On July 16th we hosted an evening of fine art photography with a presentation by the Georgia Nature Photography Association (GNPA) Judge Eric Bowles. Eric shared tips on how to create more artful compositions, and showcased the winners of this year’s GCMGA photography competition.
Many of our members are not only master gardeners but also avid nature photographers. There were winners in ten categories – birds, close-ups, digital art, first-time submitters, gardens, harvest, landscapes, plants, still life and wildlife.
Here are a few pictures from our meeting and do enjoy the slideshow of all the entries in our Photo Gallery.
