Jim Walsh
My Journey Through Photography

Details

 My interest in photography began as Freshmen in college, a group of us bought some darkroom equipment and jumped into it as if we knew what we were doing.  We didn’t, but it was very much a learning process.   And I was hooked.

 What I would like to do in this session is to address…briefly…how I got started in photography, my development as a photographer over the next several decades and, in some greater depth, how I’ve been spending time, photographically speaking, over the past ten years. 

I am not a technical wizard by any stretch and this is not a  ”How To” program.  I’ve learned to simply shoot what I like, what appeals to me aesthetically or emotionally.  It took a long time to figure that out. This program is designed to share a little bit about the path taken to get there.

Field Trips Are now DIY - Common Location with no fixed time

May DIY Field Trip – Clark Gardens

We are all hoping that this month’s field trip is one of the last of the DIY field trips. The hope is that we can soon all gather for a meal and be able to share our photo experiences with each other. However, for this month, we will still follow the COVID-19 guidelines and will be venturing out individually or in small groups with our masks in place.

This month our field trip will be to Clark Gardens, in Weatherford, just outside of Mineral Wells. www.clarkgardens.org. Clark Gardens is a 50-acre botanical garden just an hour’s drive from Dallas. The garden includes over 3000 varieties of plants, as well as waterfalls, lakes and ponds. The garden also has a large G-Scale model railroad and one of the largest Historic Tree Trails in the United States

Additional information can be found in the “Photographic Opportunity Inventory”, on the DCC website.
