NE Ohio Digital Photography Meetup Group  - Come and Cosplay

NE Ohio Digital Photography Meetup Group - Come and Cosplay

Jerry and Jill’s Studio – 2nd Floor, Kent OH

I was thrilled to be asked by Jerry Jividen of The NE Ohio Digital Photography meet up group to talk about my newest photography passion: Cosplay Photography. I have photographed intriguing people and adorable animals in some of the most awe-inspiring locations of the world, but the excitement I feel while shooting characters at comic conventions is in a league all its own. At the conventions, the cosplayers sweep me away into their surreal worlds while I just happily hang on for the ride. During the presentation, I will explain what drew me into this genre of photography, some of the lighting techniques that I use, and my eventual goals with this amazingly fun project.

Chagrin Valley Camera Club Presentation: "Travel Photography A to Z"

Chagrin Valley Camera Club Presentation: "Travel Photography A to Z"

Beachwood Library, Cleveland OH

Susan will do a presentation on travel photography. During her presentation, she aims to share some tips and tricks for framing, capturing, and processing travel photos.  At times, she will relay some embarrassing and funny stories behind her examples.

While Susan loves to focus on people, she realizes that in order to truly capture the essence of a location she much also capture the locale in general: the nature; the landscape; the wildlife, and even the food.  Additional insight will be provided about how natural light and/or flash influence all of the above.
