Digital After Dark Is Topic At Oct. 18 Chattanooga Photographic Society Meeting

Monday, October 1, 2012

Kevin Adams will speak on Digital After Dark at the Chattanooga Photographic Society meeting on Oct. 18.  Mr. Adams will speak on photographing everything from streetscapes to shooting stars, from water fountains to waterfalls. 

A naturalist, writer, teacher, and photographer, Mr. Adams has had a lifelong love affair with nature and the outdoors, particularly the mountains and coast in his home state of North Carolina. A photographer for more than 25 years, Mr. Adams is the author of nine books, including the bestselling North Carolina Waterfalls. He also writes magazine articles and his photographs appear regularly in books, magazines, calendars, and advertisements across the country.  

Mr. Adams is currently working on a series of instructional videos, eBooks, and specialized photo gear. He designed a product called the GelGrip, which holds gel filters for use in altering the color of light from flashlights and camera flashes. Mr. Adams has traveled extensively, particularly in the southeast, where, in addition to photography, he enjoys hiking, kayaking, and gazing up at the night sky.

The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. at the St. John United Methodist Church, 3921 Murray Hills Dr. For more information call 344-5643 or e-mail Dan Jeter at president@chattanoogaphoto.org.
