From Click to Pic , John Lampkin

Wednesday, March 20, Hillsborough County Extension Office, Seffner

7 pm meeting, 6:30 - 7 pm social time




The three ingredients for creating successful images involve your camera, your software and your brain. John Lampkin will share open secrets about all three elements, helping you to improve your skills of capturing those special moments in Nature’s gardens. Bring your camera and manual. Better yet, actually read it or at least pretend to read it before the meeting! If you have an image of your own you’d like to have John apply post-processing to at the meeting, send a high-res jpg or camera raw image to and he will pick several to “develop” at the meeting.

John is an avid citizen naturalist, busy photo-documenting the flora and fauna of the Sun City Center Nature Trails which he stewards. He writes a monthly nature column for the local press and his images adorn many newsletters, blogs, websites, scientific books and journals. His contemporary classical music has won several international prizes and his crossword puzzles are frequently published in the NY Times and the LA Times. He obsession with photographing plants and bugs makes him quirky but harmless.
