John Barclay presents "Dream, Believe, Create" at The Portland Camera Club, Portland, ME

The Portland Camera Club, Portland, ME is sponsoring a special 2 hour presentation with photographer John Barclay on Monday, March 30. John is presenting his very popular "Dream, Believe, Create." 

This presentation will inspire you to capture the essence of the subjects you are drawn to, using the creative medium of photography. Maybe this is capturing a small intimate portion of a scene or it could involve more creative techniques such as multiple exposures, the “slide sandwich” or camera movement for a more expressive interpretation. John will also touch on the digital darkroom, including the popular HDR technology and show you how to achieve your artistic vision. Numerous examples will be shown including traditional nature scenes as well as more abstract and urban compositions. The ideas presented in this program have application to any genre of photography. After spending a couple of hours together, you will leave inspired to create images that rise above the ordinary, feed your soul and bring great joy!
