Event Information
Special Exhibit:
"Chapters on a Quarry Wall: The Natural Stone Photography"
Leslie D. Bartlett, Photographer

CAH Museum presents an exhibition of photography by Leslie D. Bartlett, "Chapters on a Quarry Wall: The Natural Stone Photography". It is the culmination of eight years of climbing around quarry ledges to capture the unique light and beauty of the area's granite quarries.


After our visit to CAH Museum we'll walk to the nearby Pleasant Street Tea Company to discuss the exhibit over tea/coffee/snacks. Additionally we'll talk, and share as a group, how lighting, angle, camera/lens, and post-processing techniques, can help bring a very different look to our own photography.

Feel free to bring some of your own work to share. Whether a successful photo that utilized lighting/angle/post-processing to the max, or one that had potential, but didn't quite live up to expectations. Members of the group can offer helpful suggestions and experiences. Please note--If the photos you wish to share haven't been printed, but are available online, e-mail me a link to the photos and I'll setup a way to share them at the meeting.

One final note... consider bringing your camera even though this event is a little different than others we've held, there are many photogenic buildings near the CAH Museum, and weather cooperating it could be a beautiful sunset!
