Ladysmith Camera Club takes photography to the streets

Photography club hostinga session on photographing urban life

Scenic sunsets and studio poses are all well and good.

But are you up to the challenge of taking your photography to the streets?

The Ladysmith Camera Club is pleased to host “Telling Stories with Street Photography,” a presentation aimed at inspiring local photographers to capture urban life as it unfolds around them.

Pat Haugen of Saltair will disclose the equipment she uses and her approach to capturing a suitable street photograph, and then discuss a series of her images that each tell a compelling story of the interactions of people in urban environments.

“Haugen’s love of photography was energized by a lovely crooked photo of the neighbour’s house she took with a box camera at age 7. She hasn’t been without a camera of some description since then and photography occupies any day that isn’t raining,” states a camera club media release about the event.

“While others pursue the more formal portrait style, she has found her own people niche, namely the stories she sees through the interaction of people in the urban environment.”

The session is scheudled for Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m., in Hardwick Hall, High Street at 3rd Avenue in Ladysmith. Everyone welcome.

Non-members $5 drop-in fee. LCC invites new members, novice to pro.
