Description:
Cathy Walsh, certified Blue Ridge Naturalist, board member of Elisha Mitchell Audubon Society and member of Asheville’s Tree Protection Task Force will talk about her efforts over the past 1 ½ years to get policy passed by Asheville City to prohibit the use of any invasive non-native plants on City property and to encourage the greater use of native trees and plants in their place. This endeavor grew out of her concern for birds whose lives depend on native plants and trees. She will share the journey that other towns and counties in North Carolina have made in these efforts, and who has helped her in this endeavor, including noted environmentalists and elected officials. In the second half of her talk Cathy will cover the research by Audubon, Cornell Lab of Ornithology and other researchers in past months looking at how climate change, habitat loss and human behavior has caused the loss of 29% of all birds in North America over the past 50 years. She will share suggestions of what we can all do to reverse these losses and will talk about why we should all care about this crisis. Birds are the “canary in the coal mine” alerting us to the devastating effects that climate change will have on us as a civilization.

The aspects of composition, subject selection, and lighting are more important in creating a successful image than any technical abilities with your camera, yet it is common for beginning photographers struggling with learning basic camera operation, or technically minded folk, to overlook these artistic aspects of making great photographs. This workshop addresses using creative composition, and learning to see and understand the qualities of light, in order to make beautiful photographs. Anyone with a camera, from the cellphone camera user to the DSLR aficionado, can benefit from what they learn. Topics include compositional rules and guidelines, understanding the role of color and tone, visual balance, learning to use forms, shapes, lines, and patterns for visual interest, and understanding how to guide the viewer’s eye with your compositions. We will work on understanding how light reveals form and texture and can elicit emotion in your images. Tuition is $55. Class taught at Barnwell Photography, 244 Coxe Ave., Asheville. Call 828-251-0040 to enroll.
