Macrophotography of Tiny Animals – By Bob Peck

First up is Bob Peck, local entomologist, who will share his images of insects and other arthropods that inhabit Hawaiian forests. Last year at the juried Hawaii Nei exhibit at Wailoa Center, Bob received several awards for his amazing photographs.

Bob Peck: I have been involved in photography for over 25 years, reluctantly retiring my 4×5 landscape camera to embrace digital technology. Most recently, I have been concentrating on documenting the world of tiny terrestrial and marine animals through macro photography. Most of my images are taken using a 90 mm macro lens, but an old-school manual focus 1-5x 65mm lens allows the capture of extreme detail. As an entomologist studying Hawaiian ecosystems, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to search for insects on regular basis. Many of these arthropods become subjects of my photography.

Using Corel Painter 12 to Modify Digital Photo Images

For Member’s Choice, Michael Poore’s presentation will be on how to manipulate digital photos using Corel Painter12. He will show examples of before and after images.

Michael Poore: My short presentation will be on how to use Corel Painter 12 to modify digital photograph images to make them over into what might be called a painting. Using the computer in this way to produce a final image is somewhat of a pioneering effort.
