It is hard to believe it is already March. I have been working on Nature Undisturbed with Abby Jordan and Greg Blair since last fall. Soon the show will open. In just a few days, the letters will go out to those photographers who sent in entries notifiying them if they have work in the show.
Nature Undisturbed, a photography exhibit benefiting the Southern Conservation Trust, opens April 24 at Dogwood Gallery in Tyrone. That Friday evening at 6pm there will be a reception, award ceremony, and a talk by the jurors. It will be very interesting to hear what the jurors were looking for and how they found it.
Saturday, April 25, I will present a lecture on "Lensbaby and the Nature Photographer." The Lensbaby lens (as you all know) is a favorite of mine; using one in nature photography can really give you a new perspective. The lecture will begin at 2pm.
Sunday, April 26, at 2pm the spotlight is on the Southern Conservation Land Trust. The Trust will present a slideshow. Also on hand will be Okefenokee Joe and a bird of prey demonstration. This will be a great time to bring the kids!
Friday, May 1, at 6pm is another evening event -- a wine tasting and a chance to meet local photographers.
Saturday, May 2, at 6pm is a reception that should not be missed. Susan Todd-Raque will talk about collecting photography. Susan is one of the founders of Atlanta Celebrates Photography. This is definitely an event that anyone interested in photography should attend.
The closing day of the show is Sunday, May 3. At 2pm Tom Evens will show photos from his African photo safari and talk about preparing for such a trip. All photographers are asked to pick up their photos after close of the show.
It is getting more and more exciting as the opening date nears.
