Eastern Maine Camera Club’s guest lecture series is proud to present John and Cynthia Orcutt. John and Cynthia will share their story, their art and images from throughout their journey and from their new photo book ‘Enduring Heights - The High Peaks of Maine’. As always our Guest lectures are free and open to the public. So, join us at the Bangor Parks and Recreation building on Main Street Thursday night November 2nd at 6:30 PM
John and Cynthia Orcutt are fine-art nature photographers and avid outdoor enthusiasts. Following distinguished careers as an architect and landscape architect team, they have pursued their interest in highlighting the need for active preservation of fragile places. Exploring Maine’s High Peaks with camera in hand, their goal is to raise awareness that a place with much to give creates a cause for much to save. Through their photography, John and Cynthia illustrate the irreplaceable beauty and isolation of this rich and storied place. They express the inherent beauty of areas endangered by public access and frequent visitation. Their work is a call for us all to take a role in the stewardship of our natural heritage and to participate in ongoing conservation efforts in our daily lives. John and Cynthia’s work has been exhibited widely and appears in many public and private collections. www.johnorcuttnaturephoto.com

Cynthia is a commissioner on the Maine Arts Commission, a member of the BikeMaine Steering Committee, and a director of the High Peaks Cultural Coalition.

Vincent Lawrence of Acadia Images Photography Workshops
On Thursday Oct 5th at 6:00 PM Eastern Maine Camera Club will be hosting Vincent Lawrence of Acadia Images Photography Workshops as our guest speaker at the Bangor Parks and Rec Building on Main Street in Bangor. Vincent's presentation is free and open to the public. So, please come and enjoy his presentation on Landscape and Panorama Photography.
Panoramas have long been a part of the photographer’s tool box. At their inception they required special cameras and film. In the digital age software has opened up a ton of new opportunities. Today panoramic photography is very accessible thanks to programs like Photoshop and Lightroom. As we look at the benefits and challenges of this age-old technique you will become excited to try it yourself. If you have already started shooting panoramas this is a chance to learn some of the nuances and pitfalls of the process. You’ll have a chance to look at the gear and processing required for high-quality images. Photographer Vincent Lawrence is a native of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, Maine. An avid adventurer, he has taken his camera into remote wilderness areas around the world. Vincent has been a Photoshop user since 1999: post-processing ranks high on his priority list of photographic workflow and he thoroughly enjoys teaching on the topic. He owns and operates Acadia Images Photography Workshops, teaching nature and landscape photography in Acadia, including special classes on panoramas and night sky photography.
