EASTON — The Tidewater Camera Club will host seminar speaker Nikhil Bahl during its meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, May 6, in the Talbot County Community Center’s Wye Oak Room.
Bahl’s presentation is titled “Photographic Impact.” He will break down the photographic process and share his thoughts on how you can take control of your photography and create more meaningful and personal images. He also will share how these personal interpretations can have more photographic impact that will engage the viewer beyond the average photo.
Bahl is a full-time professional photographer, author, educator, workshop instructor and environmentalist living in the Washington, D.C., area.
Drawing continuous inspiration from nature, he adopts novel approaches and seeks meaningful interpretations: to create photographs that transcend the commonplace, reflect deeper insights and convey an enchantment of the subject’s beauty.
An offshoot of Bahl’s fine art photography and love of nature is his documentation of wildlife behaviors and habitats. As a volunteer with the National Park Service and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, his goal is to portray environmental stories with an artistic appeal, so his photos educate and motivate about the imperative of conservation.
Each year, Bahl leads numerous photography tours and instructional workshops in the United States and abroad. His teaching encourages participants to advance beyond ordinary photos and develop their own style and vision.
He is a popular speaker at photography clubs, expos and industry events. He authored the acclaimed ebook “Creative Interpretations” and writes articles on the creative and technical aspects of photography.
