On April 9th at 6:45 (doors open at 6:30 pm) the Bridgewater Photo Club is pleased to have Kris Tynski from Tynski Photographic in Cape Breton as their guest speaker for the evening. The Photo Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays every month from September to May. Meetings are held at the MARC, 33 Leary Fraser Road. For more information on the guest speakers, field trips and photo contests visit the club’s website at Bridgewaterphotoclub.ca or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Non- members are welcome to attend for a $5 fee.
Kris will be presenting a slideshow of his photographs with a brief story and discussion of settings used with each. He will talk about methods and techniques that he has learned that work for his photographic style. The talk will include a brief description of “what’s in the bag”; tripods, blinds and gear for nature/travel photography as it pertains to outdoor photography. He will cover both landscape photography as well as wildlife photography tips and techniques that discuss how to work with natural light. His will also cover his editing workflow, using Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop, on how to adjust color, white balance, sharpening, noise reduction and other basic adjustments. He would like to make it as interactive as possible, so lots of questions are welcome.
Kris is passionate about capturing all things in nature, be it on Cape Breton Island or wherever his travels may take him. Through the lens of his camera he aims to exploit the beauty in every season, keeping the human element minimal and hopefully taking the viewer along with him on his photographic journey.
Kris was born and raised in Cape Breton, where he developed a strong admiration for the outdoors. “I have had a connection with the great outdoors since a very young age, hunting, fishing, and foraging for wild mushrooms in the forests and meadows around my home. Our Island, Cape Breton, offers some of the best photographic opportunities in the world. Surrounded by rugged coastline, rolling hills, mountains, and the inland sea – the Bras d’Or Lake – we are fortunate to have an abundance of wildlife to experience encounters in the four very distinct seasons.”
His lens captures the wildlife, seascapes, and landscapes of the Island, focusing on the eagles, fox, heron, and deer that inhabit Cape Breton. He has been published in Canadian Geographic, Wildlife Photography World Magazine, National Geographic Daily Dozen and is a weekly contributor to the Cape Breton Post.
