Dennis Fritsche: Themes and Projects

As your catalog grows over the years, you will find there are themes you return to time and again. The themes are often subject, location, or technique. I will share some of my recurring themes and how they might be turned into a project. And give some techniques to find and organize these themes with the help of Lightroom Classic.



Dennis has been photographing since the 1970’s and became heavily involved with the rise digital photography in 2003. His interests are varied and include landscapes, the outdoors, compositing, junk cars, abstraction – well, just about everything. He is equally at home with color and black and white.

He is a Fellow of the Dallas Camera Club where he is the Education Director and the Plano Photography Club where he served as president and programs chair and is currently the Training Chair. He was Plano Photography Club Photographer of the Year for the 2011-2012 contest year. He enjoys training and sharing with other photographers.

He has had numerous images published in the Black and White Magazine single image contests since 2006 and has had three portfolio recognized in the magazine. He has also had numerous images in the single image contest of Color Magazine and his Water Dreams portfolio was a winner of the prestigious Spotlight Award. His images have appeared in juried shows at the PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont and the on-line Chasing the Light gallery. He is the 2013 Grand Prize Winner for the Trinity River Photography Contest. He had a solo show at the Grand Prairie Woman’s Club in 2018 and had a print at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, California in 2018. And in 2022 he had a print at Craighead Green Gallery in Dallas.

He has judged several local contests for the public schools and community organizations, as well as the Gulf States Camera Clubs Council and other photography clubs.
