Introduction to Drone Photography – Sam Carr and Mark Houde
Its old made new again. See things from a different perspective. The basics are the same; composition, subject, light and such. But instead of rules such as “the rule of thirds” you need to understand the FAA rules. This presentation is not designed to make you a commercial drone pilot but intended to let you know the problems and opportunities that can arise by raising your photography to different heights. We will discuss equipment as well as procedures. Visit Mark at https://www.houdsta.pictures/ or Sam at https://www.aerialviewphotographs.com/.
Assigned Subject: Composition – Frame within a Frame
November 6. Our own Mark Battista will be presenting on composition. Following the presentation we will have a workshop so bring your camera and tripod. Mark has more than 30 years experience as a fine art instructor for painting and photography, and teaches art in the West Haven school system. He has a masters degree in art education from Southern Connecticut State University, and bachelors degree in fine art from Paier College of Art.
Presentation by Donna Owens-Beeson on October 23rd has been cancelled and will be rescheduled.

Assigned Subject: Still Life
This may sound easy but it’s all about composition. The story you want your photo to tell. It can be a solo flower, a bowl of fruit, knick knacks, or something special that you want to capture forever.
