This months presentation will be directed toward obtaining beautiful images at Aquariums. Marvin Price will explain and show how to deal with the issues involved while photographing though glass and into water scenes.
This talk will be in preparation for photographing at the BPG Outing, August 17, at the Georgia Aquarium where Marvin will be able to get everyone in an hour before opening to help avoid the crowds. You will be able to use a tripod for that one hour.
Marvin's photography habit started out with his becoming interested in travel & nature photography. In order to feed his NAS (Nikon Acquisition Syndrome) he began photographing weddings. Until the past 10 years, most of his professional work has been event photography where he was photographing up to 30 events a year along with his full time law practice. Being a true Gemini, he wasn't satisfied with just sticking to any one particular aspect of photography. He became certified as an underwater photographer with the Nikon School of Underwater Photography on Cayman Brac in the Cayman Islands, studied professional nature photography with David Middleton through the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Montana, & took numerous workshops through them.
Underwater photography is particularly demanding. It is an excellent training tool, since in addition to being ready to shoot unpredictable sea life and having his camera ready, he must also pay close attention to his scuba gear, air supply and changing conditions underwater.
His work is on display at several locations around Atlanta including Thompson Gallery in East Cobb, Atlanta Scuba, State Board of Workers Compensation, Harmony Restaurant, and the Candler Building downtown.
