Speaker – Emily Crowell-Stevens
Emily Crowell-Stevens is exited to be sharing with us about her summer 2015 travels at the February meeting. She is studying mechanical engineering at The University of Texas and is a photography director for the engineering magazine Vector. Being technically-minded, yet also creative, she gravitated towards photography, where the two skill sets can be applied. Over the past year, she has been exploring astrophotography and learning to manipulate lighting in her photographs. To see her travel blog go to www.emilycrowell.wordpress.com and for more of her work visit www.emilymariephotography.org.
Two Months and Eleven Countries: Photos of Europe
This February we will hear from our own NAPfS member, Emily Crowell-Stevens, about her summer adventure traveling to 11 countries over a span of two months. Join us as she shares her photographs from the unique places visited. She will be discussing the excitements and challenges she faced in photographing her trip.
