Let's Go: Creative photography talk in Old Lyme June 3

A renowned professional photographer will be guest speaker at 7 p.m. Monday, June 3, during a meeting of the Connecticut Valley Camera Club at the Lymes’ Senior Center, 26 Town Woods Road, Old Lyme.

George Fellner, whose work has appeared in numerous magazines, will give a talk titled “Pictures at an Exhibition: A Mindset for Creative Photography.” The meeting is free to the public.

Fellner will address the characteristics that make a photograph successful, including drama and emotion as well as composition, proper lighting, color balance, resolution, detail, contrast and tonal gradation.

Fellner, a professional architect, has photographed landscapes, buildings, travel destinations and elements of nature. He has a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Florida and has been principal of Fellner Architects for more than three decades.

His first book, “Imaginary Realms: The Visual Language of Stones and Crystals,” was published in 2016, and his latest, “Essence of Architecture in East Haddam: Expressions of a Connecticut River Town,” is coming out this month.

Connecticut Valley Camera Club is dedicated to helping members expand their technical and creative skills. With members from Guilford to Gales Ferry, the club holds regular meetings locally.
