Photography Presentation. Learn the basics of Night Photography from Corporate, Portrait & Fine Art Photographer Carey Stinson. In this presentation you will learn all about shooting photography at night. The discussion will focus on equipment, camera setting, Night photography tips and techniques to capture the night.

Photography is ideas. It’s life interpreted. It’s the intersection of a client vision and photographer expertise, life experience and creative curiosity. (Carey Stinson)

Carey’s photography career began as a seed planted during his 22 years in the entertainment industry as a Big Purple Dinosaur in front of a camera. When he moved behind the lens, his passion grew quickly, beginning with shooting concert photography for Texas and national musicians and bands: artists having fun creating on both ends of the lens. It then expanded to encompass commercial and portrait photography through his dedication to listening to clients, artistic technique informed and refined by a multi-faceted life experience, and the art of the possible.


Sharing Raptor Photos. Following the presentation, we will show photos taken by our members. The category is Raptors, which may include hawk, falcon, vulture, owl, eagle, Mississippi Kite, etc. Select three of your favorite photos of raptors. Your photos must have been taken on HNWR grounds or at the field trip to Blackland Prairie Raptor Center held on April 22. Before May 18, email your images to FOHphotoclub@gmail.com. Maximum 2MB per photo. Your photos will be included in a slideshow shown at the May meeting. The photos may also be reproduced on other HNWR social media, such as Facebook, website, newsletters, etc.
