The Woodland Camera Forum will present Jan Lightfoot, who organizes a Solano County online photography group, at its monthly meeting at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, June 21. The program, which is free and open to the public, takes place at Norton Hall, 70 Cottonwood St., Woodland.

Lightfoot will present images she has taken on her travels, and will talk about Meetup groups that offer offer outings and photo opportunities in our area.

“I have had a passion for photography nearly all my life,” she says in a news release. “It has become my canvas, my creative outlet. I love sharing this passion with others who recognize that little thrill that is felt when the shutter clicks.

“I actually started shooting pictures in the fourth grade during a field trip to a California mission,” she continues. “The thrill of capturing an image on film and watching it miraculously appear on paper (or on the computer screen these days) has never left me.

“Over the years, I have always been involved with photography in one form or another.”

Lightfoot, who had her own darkroom in high school, has been a certified photographic counselor, a photographer for the Idaho Statesman newspaper and has worked in custom color printing labs.

She is the organizer for Exploring Photography, an online Meetup group, and the travel director for the Sierra Camera Club, as well as a Photographic Society of America member.

Her favorite subjects to shoot include abstract landscapes, environmental portraits, children and wildlife. Her equipment includes Canon 40D, 24-70L 2.8, 70-200L 2.8, 100L macro and a 400L 5.6.

In addition to Lightfoot’s presentation, the members of the Woodland Camera Forum will display prints of their images, and discuss how they created them and answer questions. Refreshments will be served.
