Virtual Photo Beach Bash
Saturday 2/19/2022 Showing Motion in a Single Frame Kristi Odom
Saturday 2/26/2022 Creating Landscape Photographs with Impact Joe Brady
The Coastal Camera Club is located in Lewes, Delaware, USA. Prior to COVID-19, our club hosted the Photo Beach Bash in late winter to early spring on one weekend day at a conference hotel in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. A large in-person conference is obviously not going to take place this season. Thus, we will hold a virtual event using Zoom. There will be two speakers on two different Saturday afternoons in late February 2022.
This event will be free of charge but you must signup using our EventBrite link found below.
This is the link to register:

Showing Motion in a Single Frame Kristi Odom
The world moves fast, photography lets us grab fractions of a second that we get to keep forever. But what if we want to show the movement, the life, the chaos, how do we do that in a single frame? Join Nikon Ambassador Kristi Odom as she shows you techniques on how to use motion as part of the narrative. Topics introduced include image stacking, daylight long exposure, multiple exposures, intentional camera movement, and even an intro to timelapse.
Kristi Odom is an internationally acclaimed photographer, a Nikon Ambassador, an associate fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers, and a motivational speaker. With a background in sports, concerts, and wedding photography, she now works solely on her biggest passion, which is wildlife. A photographer and filmmaker, her work focuses on connecting people emotionally to animals and celebrating those who have a connection to the natural world. While she is based in Denver Colorado, she runs an adventure company with her husband, taking photographers all around the world, providing guests with life-changing experiences, while teaching advanced photo skills.
Her accolades include over 60 international photography awards including 2 Nature’s Best Photography awards, which exhibited her images at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Her work has appeared either online and/or in print for the following clients: National Geographic, Nikon, Forbes, Rollingstone, Microsoft and Outside Magazine.

Creating Landscape Photographs with Impact Joe Brady
Landscape Photography can be a great challenge, but is also among the most rewarding photo activities. There are many elements to creating a great photograph, but in many cases we start at a disadvantage because our cameras don’t see light and color the way our eyes do. During this talk, we’ll explore how composition, color and light can all come together to create images that draw the viewer into the scene. Using both Lightroom and Photoshop, we will take raw captures that may look disappointing on your camera LCD, but as long as the composition is sound, we will shape the light, color and crop to transform these images into print-worthy photographs!
Joe Brady is a full-time professional photographer, educator, author, photo workshop leader and studio owner. He is a sought after speaker delivering inspirational and instructional talks at photo events around the US and Europe.
Joe has been a Sony’s Artisan, is an X-Rite Coloratti, a FotoPro Ambassador, is an author on lynda.com, and holds both Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman Degrees from the Professional Photographers of America.
