Next Meetup

There is a special beauty to seeing liquid frozen in time, especially when a collision is involved. Join professional photographer Loren Fisher as he shows you the magic of photographing liquid splashes and collisions. Loren will show many examples of what happens when drops collide and the unique images that are created with each shot. He will talk about the special equipment needed to control the timing of water drops to be sure you capture that fraction of a second in your camera. He will also go into how this type of high speed photography works and how lighting changes the look of the splashing liquids. Being able to freeze very fast action is key and Loren will show you what lighting equipment is needed and the settings required to stop action at the precise moment needed for an amazing photo. Loren Fisher bio: Working as a professional photographer since 1978, Loren Fisher has photographed subjects as diverse the Olympics in Seoul, Korea, eagles in Alaska, transporting horses in a 747 from Germany, the 106 covered bridges of Vermont, in the dressing room with the Rockettes and backstage with Bruce Springsteen. Hr has published two photography books: “Pope John Paul II: An American Celebration” which documented the papal visit to New York, New Jersey and Baltimore and “Branson Backstage” which looks at the phenomenon of 35 live music theaters in Branson, Missouri. Crawling through the woods, donning waders in swamps and searching out what’s good is what keeps Loren excited. While he has traveled to 50 states and 18 countries, Loren loves to seek out the beauty that surrounds him locally. Loren can be found displaying his work at art shows year round from Florida to Vermont. He teaches workshops locally and at great destinations around the world including Iceland, Chile, France, Italy and Guatemala. He started working in newspapers in 1978 as a staff photographer and worked for seven newspapers in Indiana, Ohio and New Jersey, plus USA Today as a photographer, photo editor and graphics editor. He was Managing Editor/Digital for two N.J. Gannett newspapers, the Home News Tribune and Courier News and oversaw the combined website. He is a past president of the New Jersey chapter of ASMP and is an adjunct professor at Rutgers University teaching photography, multimedia and video in the journalism department. Loren lives in Somerville, N.J. and Woodstock, Vt. with his wife, Robin Gaby Fisher.

What we're about

The Adventures In Photography Meetup Group would like to share its passion for photography with other like-minded photo enthusiasts. Our Meetup Group will be hosting photography related events such as field trips, workshop programs, speaker events, and other activities intended to help photographers of all levels come together and enjoy the many rewards that photography has to offer. Photographers of all skill levels who are looking to improve their skills, find new creative outlets for shooting, or just to connect with a friendly group of people to socialize and talk shop are all welcome to join.

Our intention is to concentrate on three areas of photographic interest. These areas are:

1. Field Trips: While we do intend to offer field trips to the usual destinations that offer a rich variety of photo ops, we have no intention of stopping there. We will seek out unusual and extraordinary destinations that will offer a wide variety of photographic adventures. We intend to offer same day field trips, weekend field trips and somewhat longer photo adventures designed to accommodate wide and varied interests.

2. Workshops: We intend to periodically offer a variety of presentations by an assorted cast of experts, in the field of photography, who have something unique and unusual to share with us. Generally, these presentations will be scheduled on a weekday night and will run for about two hours.

3. Extended Workshops: We also intend to periodically offer half day and/or full day workshops presented by an assorted cast of experts, in the field of photography, who have something unique and unusual to share with us. In general, these workshops will present subject matter that cannot be presented easily in an abbreviated two hour session. In many instances these workshop will utilize well known speakers sponsored by well known companies in the photographic community.

We are limited only by our imagination and your willingness to support our efforts.

Everything connected with this Meetup Group will be conceived, planned and managed by photographers for photographers.
