Our guest speaker tonight is David Sweeney, who will be making 2 presentations this evening – the first on Winter Photography followed by a second on The Haliburton Forest Project.
For some photographers, the winter months are a time to reflect and spend time editing and printing their photo’s taken in the fairer months, but for David Sweeney, the winter presents a new challenge for photographic subjects. David will cover the basics of shooting in the colder months, from the handling of equipment, to the challenges of reading your light meter in the snow. He will also talk about winter gear and staying warm, while having fun with the camera.
Haliburton Forest Project
Since 2004 David Sweeney has been exploring one of Ontario’s largest privately owned wilderness properties – Haliburton Forest & Wildlife Reserve. David has been to just about every corner of the forest, both by car, foot and ATV. Capturing awesome landscapes, water ways, and wildlife, David will present a media slideshow which summarises many years of exploring the forest. A second slideshow features the wolves of the Haliburton Forest Wolf Centre from the past 2 years.
