HUDSON – The Assabet Valley Camera Club will host Silvana Della Camera, award-winning photographer, judge and presenter, as well as a member of the Professional Photographers Association on Feb. 1.
In her hour-long presentation on “Color, Contrast, Lighting and Composition,” Della Camera will discuss how photography is much more than pointing a camera at a scene and clicking the shutter. It involves a process of weighing the assorted components seen within the viewfinder and realizing how they can be used to capture a powerful image.
She will guide photographers on how to evaluate and isolate the various graphical elements before them to create an impactful, visual story.
Della Camera, a software engineer by trade, began her fascination with photography as a very young child. Now a lifelong obsession, Della Camera shares her enthusiasm for photography through her workshops, photo walks and camera club presentations on various topics including infrared, black-and-white, time-lapse and deep-space photography. To see more of her images and to join her email list, visit her website at SilvanaPhoto.com. She can also be found on Instagram and Facebook.
