"Image Craft"
by Jacob Mosser
Monday, November 12, 7:30 PM

This teaching program which was presented at the 2012 NECCC conference and was a part of the GPLA photo course offers an in-depth look at the basic elements of the photograph. Subject, composition, and light are explored using detailed examples of these building blocks of an image and the thought process involved in creating photographic art. Jake will give a brief review of relationship between apertures and shutter speeds for proper exposure.

Long time GLPA member, Jacob Mosser is an accomplished photographer who has been obsessed with photography for the past thirty years. He has earned photographic honors from the Photographic Society of America, the New England Camera Club Council and the Greater Lynn Photographic Association for both his skills with the camera and his efforts on behalf of the photographic community. At the recent Photographic Society of America Conference Jake was presented with the Stuyvesant Peabody Memorial Award for his significant contributions to pictorial photography through exhibiting, lecturing, writing and teaching. He has served as chairman of PSA’s nature division, chairman of the Massachusetts Camera Naturalists, president of NECCC and is past president and Honorary Life Vice President of the Greater Lynn Photographic Association. He currently serves on the board of NECCC and GLPA and is the chairman of PSA’s Ethics Committee. He has judged and lectured on photography throughout the Northeast and for various photographic organizations in the U.S. and Canada and his work has been published in various magazines and calendars. Jake is most at home in the field with camera in hand, but he finds great satisfaction in teaching the techniques and vision he has learned through experience and the kindness of other sharing photographers.

This is a great review for those more experienced photographers and for the newer photographers this program will improve your ability to create an effective photograph pleasing to all who see it.
