“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” (Marc Riboud, French photojournalist). Whether you savor life through the lens of an iPhone or a Leica, learning how to take better photos can capture a moment in ways that make it even more meaningful. On July 16, at 7pm, the Gwinnett County Master Gardeners Association (GCMGA) is hosting an evening of fine arts, with a presentation by the Georgia Nature Photography Association (GNPA). “Life Through The Lens” will include tips on how to create more artful compositions, and showcase the winners of this year’s GCMGA photography competition. Many of the Association’s members are not only master gardeners but also avid nature photographers and each year, judges report stiff competition among contest entries. The GNPA judge will announce winners in ten categories – birds, close-ups, digital art, first-time submitters, gardens, harvest, landscapes, plants, still life and wildlife.
GCMGA meets on the third Monday of each month at The Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044. The event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to bring a covered dish to share for a potluck dinner at 6:30, or just arrive in time for the program which begins promptly at 7 p.m.
