Next Meeting: Tuesday, March 27th, 2018 @ 7:30 PM
Program Night  – Still Life Photography by Charlie Batchelder – Bring your camera!

Traditional Still Life Photography is a program that uses the established artistic principles and characteristics that have defined Still Life as an art form since the 17th century and earlier and marries them to present-day photographic technique. In this program traditional still life photography is first defined and then it is shown how it is distinct from other styles of still life photography. Then the compositional considerations of traditional still life photography are presented with examples from the presenter’s portfolio. Finally, a practical workflow is laid out that enables any photographer to get good traditional still life results with typical photographic equipment and software. Included in this workflow is a detailed explanation of focus stacking and its use to achieve the results that are seen in traditional still life work from the 17th century.
