What we’re about

LOW LIGHT PHOTO GROUP - Started in 2017, the group is open to all interchangeable lens camera (ILC) users who are interested in Low Light Photography. Hosted by Donovan (Dono) Evans, the group will explore the unique properties of low light photography with presentations and field trips. There are no fees or dues for joining this group; however, some group activities have fees. The group meets bi-monthly at Johnson PhotoImaging in Bradenton, FL.

With the current health crisis, social distancing practices are in effect until further notice. I encourage you to continue exploring and sharing with the group in general. Keep exploring out-of-the-box options. Please be well and be safe. In the end, this too shall pass.

Each participant is responsible for their safety and the proper operation of their photographic equipment. Event hosts and instructors are exempt from all liability or responsibility whatsoever for all personal injury, property damage, or wrongful death, however, caused, including but not limited to property liability or the negligence of the released parties, whether passive or active. Each participant must use their judgment regarding safety.

My work focuses on capturing a moment in time, whether it's portraiture, landscape, nature, lifestyle imagery, or basking in the light of the Milky Way.

Landscapes are a way for me to connect myself to the world. Like most of us, I work, pay bills, and will probably do so until the day I die. However, that's not living; that's a process of getting by. Landscape photography is, for me, a spiritual connection. The spiritual that I seek isn't religious or a belief in a guiding spirit. My landscape work aims to remind the viewer how small humankind is. How important that we try to be kinder to each other and to this world we live in. We are just stories at the end; we only need to make them a good one.

Be safe, be well, and take pretty pictures!
