David Vernon will do a presentation on drones and still photography at our February 27th meeting.
From David’s website http://www.escapesphoto.com

I wear many hats. I am a commercial, portrait, and fine art photographer living and working in Central Illinois.

I picked up and began using my first camera when I was eight years old. For all of those years, photography was a companion who was either a half step ahead or behind. There were years where I was deeply immersed and there were years when other things in a busy life intruded. In all that time, this companion sat on the edge of my life waiting patiently to capture the moment when the light of recognition clicked on over my head. During that time, I’ve come to understand two things: that my art is what makes me truly happy and that life is too short not to follow one’s passion.

      Hope to see you at the meeting tonight.
