Picturing Places

October 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Lifelong Learning Monthly Lecture Series aims to bring outstanding speakers to our community. Join us for refreshments at 9:15 a.m. followed by presentations from outstanding speakers from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. in the Franciscan Center. Alternatively, you may attend online. 

We always bring cameras when we travel, and many of us carry cameras every day in our cell phones. These cameras can help us explore a place, whether close to home or on an exotic trip. Photography professor, author, and artist Garin Horner has guided students across the US and through Canada, Europe, India, Nepal, and South America, helping them to learn about themselves and the world.

It doesn’t matter whether you take photographs with a digital camera or a cell phone, there are lots of tips, techniques, and resources that can help you take better pictures, particularly when you travel. In this informative and interactive presentation, you will learn how to get the most out of your camera. Prof. Horner will share some of his favorite ways to prepare for a trip, advice on how to explore a destination, and ways to communicate a sense of place through your own unique vision.

Garin Horner is a Professor of Photography at Adrian College, in Adrian Michigan and has taught travel photography for more than 20 years. He is the author of The Photography Teacher’s Handbook: Practical Methods for Engaging Students in the Flipped Classroom, a co-author of Teaching Photography, 2nd Edition, and has recently written The Photo Student Handbook: Essential Advice on Learning Photography and Launching Your Career Path.
