He is president of Dallas Camera Club, a member of Plano Photography Club and a member of the Heard Nature Photographers Club.  He uses Olympus equipment.

Larry was born and raised in Utah. He earned two degrees in biology from the University of Utah, served in the U.S. Army, and then moved to Texas to pursue another degree at the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio. While there, he joined the Woodlawn Camera Club, now the Greater San Antonio Camera Club, and since has been actively involved in club photography. He is a retired instructor from Texas Woman’s University School of Physical Therapy.

  • Composite Light Painting, presented by Andy Lay
  • Above, Harrier, by Andy

Light Painting is a broad term describing a wide variety of photographic techniques. This presentation covers a specific process that yields high quality, artistic images that cannot be achieved by traditional lighting methods. It involves multiple exposures using continuous lighting sources in a nearly totally dark environment and compositing the resulting exposures in Photoshop to achieve the result. Join us to see what equipment is used, how it’s done, and some of the results.

Join us in person at our traditional meeting location or dial in with Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84202630392; Meeting ID: 842 0263 0392
