Ed Luinstra Presenting in April

Ed Luinstra will be presenting on Macro Photography on Friday, April 14th.

Ed is a recent transplant from Calgary and arrived here in Kanata a year and a half ago. This is his first year in the Kanata Seniors Centre Camera Club. He is having a great time meeting new people and photographically exploring his new surroundings.

Ed has been doing photography since his teen years. He is of a technical bent and spent many hours in the darkroom back in the film days. He enjoys shooting landscapes, people, abstracts and many other subjects. In the last few years, he has concentrated on nature subjects, especially birds and anything else he comes across in the wilds. Some years ago, Ed became interested in macro photography, something that appealed to his technical side. He spends many summer days prowling in weedy fields looking for bugs to photograph.  

Ginny Fobert presenting in March

Ginny Fobert

Ginny Fobert, an accomplished fine art photographer, will give a
presentation entitled “From Then Until Now” at the March 3 rd meeting
of the Kanata Seniors Centre Camera Club (KSCCC).

Ginny has always been interested in photography. In recent years, she
has focused primarily on fine art photography. Once told that photography was not art, her goal has been to bring photography further into the art world using unique photographic techniques. She believes that a photograph is made, not taken.

“Photography is made in your own mind and with your own eye. It is slow and considered in its making. It can indeed be art”. Ginny has had numerous solo shows and has been involved in multiple art festivals and exhibitions within the city of Ottawa and across Ontario.
