Everywhere you look, you are surrounded by images. Technology has made it possible for more and more people to become photographers. With so many images and so many people taking pictures, it is more important than ever to make images that stand out. In this presentation, Mary will share what she has learned on her path with photography. She will include things that are needed (in addition to gear), ways to approach a new subject, steps you can take to continue to grow as a photographer, and how to produce creative work that will stand out in a crowd. In sharing steps taken on her path, she hopes to inspire others to make the next steps on their photographic journeys.

Mary Presson Roberts is an award winning fine art photographer living and working in the Carolinas. She received her B.A. in Elementary Education from Winthrop University, Rock Hill, SC and her Masters in School Administration from The Citadel, Charleston, SC. Mary has been an educator for thirty-one years and is a published author in the field of education. Ten years ago, Mary began really exploring the world through photography. Photography completely transformed her life. It allowed her to go to places she never would have experienced and meet people she never would have met. It added a whole, new dimen- sion to her life. Mary is thrilled to now have the opportunity to combine her two passions: teaching and photography as she shares with other photographers by speaking, leading photo tours and photography workshops. Follow Your Own Path.


Submit three images on a flash drive (IN A SUBDIRECTORY FOLDER NAMED WITH THE MEMBER'S NAME) with files resized to 2500 pixels on longest side. A member may share up to THREE IMAGES on any subject of his choice without regard for a particular theme as dictated by the CCC. The member may then discourse on each image and how it was exposed and enhanced and met expectations and artistic philosophy. Fewer images, more discussing. Limiting your images to three gives time for more participation. Fewer images, more discussing.
