Kris Light To Present Workshop At Chattanooga Photographic Society Meeting

Saturday, February 9, 2013

Kris Light will present a workshop at the February 21 Chattanooga Photographic Society meeting.

Kris Light is a lifetime Tennessean who grew up in Nashville. After graduating from UT Knoxville, she lived in Johnson City for two years where she worked at the Quillen Medical School at East Tennessee State University, then moved to Oak Ridge in 1980.

Her life-long love of nature carried over into a profession of teaching science outreach programs to elementary school students for the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1987 and the American Museum of Science and Energy. She also taught science part-time at Willow Brook Elementary School in Oak Ridge for 13 years.

Ms. Light became seriously interested in photography in 2003 when she switched from film cameras to digital. In 2009 she began photographing individual snowflakes with a 105mm macro lens, which led to making note cards and jewelry. The following summer she began photographic moths and soon had images of more than 250 species.

Her photographs have been published in Tennessee Conservationist, Cooking Light, several nature field guides, a German homeopathic medicine book, several science textbooks, and a Rexall herbal supplement label. She and her husband have travelled to all four corners of the United States and Costa Rica. They especially enjoy visiting the western states for their wonderful geological and biological diversity. However, they are always happy to return to beauty of east Tennessee.

The presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the St. John United Methodist Church, 3921 Murray Hills Drive, Chattanooga, TN 37416.  For more information call 344-5643 or e-mail Bill Mueller at president@chattanoogaphoto.org.

Roy Exum: Way 'Over The Line'

Every day last week a Chattanooga woman sent me a press release for a “Recess Week of Action,” which was the greatest example of “an exercise in futility” that I can recall in recent years. I absolutely refuse to attend, write, or publicize such a group of admittedly-questionable political agitators. Please, I have never seen anything like this! Sometime soon, I suspect, the truth ...
