Science Behind Taking Great Photographs

Science Behind Taking Great PhotosSaturday, June 14 @ 2pm
Great photographs are created through a technique that applies artistic design within a medium that relies on technical precision. Local artist and lifelong photographer, Tom Tibbitts, will help you take your photos to a new level. Come learn the science behind artistic design, elements of light exposure, contrast, depth, composition’s rule of thirds, or Fibonacci’s Ratio as the Golden Mean. The science behind great photographs is the ability to know the rules, when to follow them, and when to break them.

 

Anastasia Island Book Club

Stolen LivesThursday, June 12 @ 6:45pm
Join us in this month's book club by reading Stolen Lives: Twenty Years in a Desert Jail by Malika Oufkir. Malika spent most of her childhood and adolescence in the court harem, surrounded by luxury and privilege. In 1972, her father was executed after an attempt to assassinate the king. Malika, her five brothers and sisters, and her mother were immediately imprisoned in a desert penal colony. After twenty years, the Oufkir children managed to dig a tunnel with their bare hands and make an audacious escape. Reserve it. All are welcome to join.
