MONDAY, AUGUST 12th, 2024- WORKSHOP – Photographing Flowers – Bettye Sue Austin

I have been a member of Cookeville Camera Club since 2014. I took a class offered by the club. I intended to learn how to photograph my daylilies that I had created by cross pollinating daylilies I had bought. I intended to sell daylily seeds when I retired from the IT programming industry. I never did create that business. I loved photography. It made you look at the world differently. You see beauty every where. Things that I never even noticed before. Now I take photos of the flowers I grow. I use different backgrounds to isolate the flowers or lenses that blur the background. I process the photos through Lightroom and ON1.

Meeting will be at The Cookeville Art studio and Gallery
186 S Walnut Ave Ste A, Cookeville, TN 38501

Meeting starts at 7pm – Doors open at 6:45pm

Monday October 14th, 2024 – Workshop – Portraiture by Don Hinds

 I have more than 40 years of making photographs. When  I decided to get serious about my photography I went to College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn, IL and graduated with honors. Later my wife and I purchased a portrait studio in Geneva , Illinois. We specialized in High School Senior portraits, along with executives, families, kids, pets, weddings and products. During that time we were members of Professional Photographers of America, Northern Illinois group, where I earned many awards.
