This month we will conclude our series of “APG Talks” with a potpourri of short talks and equipment demos by APG members Judy Glenn, Al Williams and Wade Sheldon. These will be interactive presentations, so be sure to bring your questions!

Judy Glenn will be sharing her tips and tricks for time-lapse photography and photographing caterpillars changing into their chrysalis and from chrysalis to butterfly.

Judy has a Master’s degree in Physical Education and Health and taught for 19 years. Now, all her time is now devoted to wildlife and nature photography. Her favorite two things to photograph are black bears and hummingbirds.

Al Williams will be sharing his insights on exploring the three manual controls of exposure in photography.

Al is an Athens area fine art photographer who is currently focused primarily on purely traditional pinhole, medium and large format fine art black and white photography. He also works in digital and hybrid photography. Rural landscapes, portraits and macro photography are his usual subjects, but he is of the mind that all photographs should really be about light at the most fundamental level. Mr. Williams discovered his passion for photography studying photographic design in the pinhole photography program at the University Of Georgia Lamar Dodd School of Art in the late 1980’s. He has worked as a commercial portrait photographer and spent a year and a half at Showcase Photographics in Atlanta as the custom color lab technician. He began teaching darkroom photography in 1994 at the original Monroe Art Guild and has continued to share his passion for darkroom photography over the years

Wade Sheldon will be demonstrating GODOX affordable wireless flash and strobe options for on-location lighting. If time is available he will also demonstrate his equipment and technique for affordable gallery print framing at home.

Wade is a marine scientist at the University of Georgia, specializing in scientific computing and environmental data management. He bought his first camera after graduating from college, a Canon T-70 film body, and has been hooked on photography ever since. He currently pursues a wide range of photo subjects semi-professionally, including promotional and event photography for UGA, Cedar Theatre, Bear Hollow Zoo, Athens for Everyone, and various non-profit groups and scientific societies, as well as landscape and general nature photography. Wade’s photos have appeared in multiple Lyndon House juried shows and special exhibits, as well as technical publications and regional magazines including the UGA Research Reporter.
