Photos of Women, Children, Animals and Mountains from Around the World
Speaker: Tom Travis

 

 

Abstract: Tom will share photos from his world travels of women, children, mountains and animals.  He will discuss his approach to photography, which emphasizes composition over picture quality.  He focuses on the emotion of people and the beauty of mountains.  He use photography to record his travel experiences and to educate people about the world.

He exhibits his photos in albums on FLICKR where they have had over three million views, and recently at public libraries.
Critique Forum

After Tom’s talk we will break for light refreshments and conversation for ten minutes or so then Dan will get us back together for a Critique Forum.  If you wish to participate and have your photos critiqued by the group, please submit up to five JPEG images to Dan at hyde@bucknell.edu by 5 pm Tuesday May 21.   And if you have not read the two articles, you should read the two below articles before the meeting!

Details of Critique Forum:  Members have the opportunity to submit up to five JPEG images to be critiqued by the group. Dan will select at least one image per person from the pool of submitted images. At the meeting the photographer will have the opportunity to tell a brief story about each selected image, including what they were trying to accomplish when they took the picture. The group will point out positive aspects of each image as well as ways the photo could be improved and possibly how the photographer could improve their technique. The purpose of the Critique Forum is for us to learn from each other!

The theme for the June 2019 Photo Quest is “Flowers.”
