Capt. Brian Talks At The Ft. Myers Camera Club

Capt. Brian Talks At The Ft. Myers Camera Club

Last spring I took out the members of the Ft. Myers camera club. The president of the club asked me to do a talk about what I do on the water. Tonight I  gave a thirty minute PowerPoint  to the club. My daughter was extremely helpful in this project. She helped set up the PowerPoint and sat with me looking at over three thousand photos giving me the nod on which pictures were good and why.( I used 50 pictures in the Power Point) She has a great eye for photography and colors in the natural world. Tonight she was the AV tech and photographer for dad. She did a great job and took all of the above photos with a D300 Nikon manually. The club asked me to do another PowerPoint in January. Looks like it is time to get out there and start taking more photos.

    Will the depths of Salty's skill sets never end! If only every kid had parents like you and Melanie that not only encouraged their kid's interests & talents but celebrated them. I still see that coffee table book but it's looking more like a family project.
