Next Meeting: February 13th, 2017

The Maui Camera Club will hold its monthly meeting Monday, February 13th, in the usual location of Hale Mahaolu Elima Community Meeting Room, 11 Mahaolu St., Kahului (off of Kamehameha Avenue).

Our guest speaker will be Craig Stocks, who will be giving a presentation on perspective.

Perspective may be the most powerful component of composition and your choice of camera position and lens has a dramatic impact on the final image. This discussion will help photographers at all levels think of perspective as a compositional tool, see uses of perspective in photographs and use perspective to create more compelling photos.

After working in the newspaper and studio businesses for several years, Craig chose to leave professional photography in 1977 to pursue a career as a mechanical engineer. Over the years, he retained his interest in photography, and the advent of digital processing rekindled his passion. Craig retired at the beginning of 2009 and began an encore career in photography with an emphasis on fine art large-scale landscape and abstract figure photography, as well as teaching.
