On April 12th, 2014 the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs (NJFCC) organizes the annual Photorama.
The subject of Photorama this year is "Nature Outdoors, Near and Far" and the speakers are:
- Jennifer Wu
- Mike Moats
You can order tickets on-line for $30 by visiting the NJFCC site or by them at the door for $40 if there are seats available.
Jennifer WU will present the “far” section of the program.
This inspiring and entertaining presentation is a must see for anyone interested in nature and landscape photography. Jennifer will take you on a visual journey through the natural world and cover tips for nature photography. She has been a professional photographer since 1992 and is best known for her nature, landscape and night photography. She was named by Canon USA to the elite group of photographers, The Explorers of Light.
Her images, featured in numerous magazines and books, have won a wide variety of prestigious awards. Canon publishes her spectacular sky photographs in their professional camera brochures and advertisements. Whenever Jennifer is not on nature expeditions at some of the most beautiful locations in the world, she exhibits her images at nationally recognized galleries and art shows.
Jennifer strives to craft landscapes that evoke a mood, strike a chord of recognition, or trigger a sense of longing within the viewer. Depending on the image, one may sense tranquility and peacefulness or imagine evoke a feeling of mystery and vivid qualities, drawing the viewer to the subsequent images. She photographs dramatic landscapes that are at the edge of the light, the border of night and day, as she searches for exquisite and unique perspectives of the natural world.
