    Lela Whiddon, M.Photog, CPP

       You’re faced with a wedding party of 10 or more people.  Everyone is in a hurry to finish the photos so they can celebrate.  There are what seems to be never ending groups and combinations of family and friends.  There is not enough room to pose your wedding party!  You feel the pressure, but you have it under control!

         With over 25 years of experience in wedding photography, Lela has learned a few dos and don'ts for posing groups and keeping a positive workflow in a variety of situations.  Join us on Thursday, October 26, 2023 for a great discussion via Zoom!  

         Lagniappe:  Imaginative detail shots!  Lela will share some unique detail shots and discuss how they were created.

    What Works in Photography

    Presented by- Bernard Gillette

    A look at "What Works in Photography," consisting of 24 various photo topics. Many of the topics you're familiar with and have seen before. However, you have never seen them presented by me. The plan is to review the rules or laws of Composition, add in a taste of Balance, Viewpoints, Lighting, Portraiture, Babies. Children and 18 more topics. Photography has expanded in so many directions it's hard to keep pace.  "What Works in Photography" focuses on the happenings with the camera, where it all starts.  "EXPECT SOMETHING SPECIAL!" 

    After Bernard’s program we will move to the Kenner Rivertown for a Photowalk from 3:00-5:00.
