If you have ever watched the sunset, or stood by the edge of the ocean and thought, “Wow, this is just breathtaking! My camera may not even be able to capture this beauty!” You could be right. The things we see with the naked eye often can’t ever be exactly replicated with a lens or on a canvas. The photographs we do take, however, encompass memories and feelings that are forever frozen in a moment in time.
There’s a process to taking pictures where so much happens in one moment that the photographer actually works backwards in a way to describe his process.
- How was the angle set up?
- What was was the exposure set to?
- Where was the photo taken?
- What time of day was the photo taken?
Behind every photo, there’s a story. Photographs tell stories on their own, without any words necessary.
We hope that you’ll join Richard Hinds of Digital Musings on Thursday February 9 at 2 PM at the West Bridgewater Public Library to talk more about the stories behind his photographs.
Rich will do a 30 minute talk about his photography on display. Then, he’ll be available for a Q&A while you take a closer look at the pieces he has on display. Hope to see you there!
