Instructor: John Holliger
There’s more to the mist than the eye can see! John will cover how to choose the right time of day, how to predict the upcoming weather conditions typical for a misty environment, and where to find misty places. He’ll explain how to avoid gray mist and capture white mist instead. The lecture will also include explanations and stories about photos on exhibit at Sunbear, and John’s poetic approach to this subject. Bring your point and shoot camera, your SLR, or your cell phone for a Q and A about using your camera for this special kind of photography.
John loves the thrill of being pounded with hail and blown about by winds, slogging through wetlands, bogs, forests of fern, exploring the habitats of old growth forests in Hartwick Pines, the Seney National Wildlife Preserve, listening to the ancient stories the rocks and water are telling creating images of the night sky slowly unfolding in their unique way into a new day.
A graduate of Oberlin College and Yale Divinity School, John is an Episcopal priest who served in parishes in Connecticut and Ohio, laying down that work in 2004. John is a member of the Wooster Friends Meeting, a lifetime nature photographer with an animated curiosity for how potters, painters, poets and classic photographers approach their art – always on the creative edge, taking risks, asking “What’s next?”
