The Davis Photography Club will hear from speaker Truman Holtzclaw at its meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St.
Holtzclaw says he’s always been fascinated with wide-angle lenses and their results. His first wide-angle lens was an inexpensive 20mm Spiratone. Today, his two favorite lenses are the Canon 16-35 mm and his newest, the Sigma 12-24 mm, which he uses with a full-frame Canon D5 Mark II.
Upon his retirement in 2001 after 34 years as a biology teacher, he started his own photographic company called A Beautiful Image. He is past president of the Sacramento Audubon Society, Sierra Camera Club and the Gold Rush Chapter of the Photographic Society of America. He also has worked as a park naturalist for the state of California.
