Texas summers can be brutally hot to get out and find places and things you can photograph without melting away. How many times have you heard someone (yourself included?!) lament that there is nothing to photograph? Yet if one looks around, there are actually a lot of things to photograph.
This month’s speaker is Kathy Adams Clark. Join us as she shows there are hidden photo opportunities if you are willing to look and try new things. Her program will explore the use of macro lenses, infrared, long-exposure, focus stacking, and much more. Novice to experienced photographers will gain insight into new and different techniques and equipment (gadgets) that can be used to create new masterpieces.
Kathy Adams Clark has been a professional nature photographer since 1995. She runs the stock agency KAC Productions that represents the work of 15 photographers. Kathy’s photos have been published in hundreds of places including Family Fun, Natures Best, New York Times, Birders World, and Ranger Rick. AAA Journey, Texas Parks & Wildlife and Texas Highways magazines have all used Kathy’s photos on their cover.
Her photos have also appeared in numerous books and calendars including the Barnes & Noble Ireland Countryside Calendar, the cover of the Arbor Foundation Rainforest Calendar, and the Sierra Engagement Calendar. Kathy’s photos of Houston were compiled into a calendar offered in Costco in 2016. Her photos appear every week in the “Nature” column in the Houston Chronicle written by her husband, Gary Clark.
