Nov. 5 -- Portraits of the Homeless: A Photojournalist’s Endless JourneyWhile some photojournalists stalk the rich and famous, Redlands freelancer Greg Schneider aims his camera at those on the other end of the socio-economic scale. His subjects, often weather-beaten and missing a tooth or two, are the men and women who inhabit the homeless shelters and rescue missions which dot our country. Greg will share his moving images and portraits at the Redlands Camera Club, 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 5, John Knox Hall (behind First Presbyterian Church). The program is open to the public.We’ll learn Greg’s approach to portraiture and hear about his experiences spending 40 days a year at gospel rescue missions from Bakersfield to Buffalo. His work helps to help raise money for the missions. Last year, the agency which employs him raised more than $250 million for the homeless.After a 10-year stint working for the San Bernardino Sun -- where he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and was twice named California Press Photographer of the Year -- Greg joined the staff of an international Christian ministry and has traveled to more than 65 countries making photos for their Worldwide Challenge Magazine. He also plays violin and saxophone in community music groups and is an enthusiastic hiker who – ironically – has no interest whatsoever in shooting scenery. He offers this advice: “If you love people, it will show in your pictures. If you don’t love people, it will show in your pictures.” For more on Greg visit www.gregschneider.com/
Nov. 19 -- Shoot Better Smartphone Photos with Bruce HerwigLearn Smartphone photography tips and tricks at this special meeting of the Redlands Camera Club, 7 p.m., Nov. 19, John Knox Hall (behind First Presbyterian Church). The program is open to the public.Smartphone cameras came out of nowhere and changed photography forever. Their images and videos are everywhere now, challenging (some say, threatening) bulky and awkward “conventional” cameras and lenses while transforming the way people shoot and share pictures. The relentless flow of improved smartphone cameras, tiny lenses, accessories and powerful software apps shows no sign of slowing.What’s an old-school shooter to do? Bruce Herwig, a serious amateur photographer and a smartphone tech enthusiast, who has taught smartphone photography at the Redlands Art Association, has some answers. We’ll hear from Bruce, debate the issues and share our own smartphone photos – don’t miss it!
