Sue Carey sent along this excerpt from Freeman Patterson’s newsletter:

I’d also like to draw your attention to, produced by Parimal Deshpande and hosted by him and the internationally-renowned photographer, Art Wolfe, both from Seattle. This is a series of stimulating conversations with photographers from around the world, selected by Art and centred on some of their images. The series is a work-in-progress; you can view those already filmed and there are more to come. Don’t miss the compelling conversation with Wade Davis, the Canadian anthropologist and photographer, who was explorer-in-residence at National Geographic for several years.

Karen Bell’s Presentation and Frozen Bubbles Recipe

You can view Karen Bell’s presentation on Creative In-Camera Photography from our meeting on February 5th, 2021 by clicking here.

During her presentation Karen also showed us how to take pictures using Frozen Bubbles. Here are the instructions to make them:

Frozen Bubbles
– Mix together 200 ml of warm water, 35 ml corn syrup, 35 ml dish soap and 2 tbsp sugar.
– For bubbles to freeze before they pop the temperature needs to be well below freezing. Ideal conditions are -25 degrees C with no wind.
– Using a straw, gently blow bubbles onto snow or whatever surface you choose. 
Grab your camera and start shooting as ice patterns begin to form and before the bubbles break!
