To some, the Big Bang theory describes the start of the universe. To those in the drone industry, it describes the ever expanding markets of which drones have become a part. Drone use has exploded in every direction from photography, to videography, surveillance, life safety, law enforcement, inspections, mapping, 3D modeling, agriculture, and construction. Drones are part of our world and they are here to stay. They come in all shapes and sizes and Ken will show us an assortment from entry level consumer drones to highly advanced multi-camera drones, with price tags ranging from $300 to well over $10,000 and everything in between. In this session, Ken will briefly discuss the various types of drones in the market, how they are used, along with their capabilities. He’ll then focus on their specific applicability and capability to take your photography and videography to a new level, both figuratively and literally! He’ll have a few drones on display that are at various price points and he’ll demonstrate flying one or more of them to showcase how easy they are to operate and how immensely capable they are. Ken is an FAA Licensed Remote Pilot in Command and he will talk about the various regulations that exist in the world of drones and how these regulations are changing. He’ll also discuss hobby-use versus commercial-use of drones and the differences in regulations as well as where to get training and the path to become a commercial remote pilot in command. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and, depending on time and circumstances may have an opportunity to test fly a drone!
Ken's presentations are always entertaining and he has quickly become one of our favorite speakers. So don't miss out on this one! See you in November!

Have you ever looked at a nice picture of someone but weren’t sure whether you liked it or not? Most likely it had to do with the pose. In our October meeting Anthony Lorenc will discuss and demonstrate the difference between posing male and female subjects in a way that they won’t realize they’re being posed resulting in natural and becoming portraits. Come ready to participate and a prize awaits the night’s best “poser”!
Anthony Lorenc’s passion for photography began in 1976. He has taught the subject in New Jersey and Pennsylvania schools including NCC. He has even “made a little money” at it running a successful photography business. Anthony has also authored a book on photography, Guide to Digital SLR Photography, which is available on Amazon.

Discover the beauty of abandoned places with
Richard Lewis, Photographer
Richard Lewis has been a professional and fine art photographer since the 1970’s with a passion for landscapes, abandoned buildings and interesting people. He uses both a professional digital camera and an iPhone to create his work.
Richard’s inspiration comes from landscape painters and has developed a style he calls "Painting with a Camera”. This involves equal effort in both creating and post processing an image.
Richard is an active photography blogger, lecturer, instructor and conducts workshops in the New Jersey Pine Barrens and other places to help photographers find their unique creative voice. To see some of his work, visit:
Richard's presentation is entitled Hidden Treasures - Photographing Abandoned Buildings
and he describes it this way, "There is a certain allure of abandoned places that attracts photographers. This presentation will show my work with abandoned buildings. It also covers specific approaches to photographing the strange an surreal beauty of forgotten places safely and without getting arrested."
The curtain raiser will be presented by Ken Winham.
Photos will also be selected for the RESCUEdog exhibit coming to Dunning Gallery in the Fall.
The July meeting will take place at Northampton Community College, Monroe Campus, 2411 Rt. 715, Tannersville, PA. 18372 on July 17, 2018 from 7 to 9 PM.
