DO NOT TAKE PICTURES OF THE EASTMAN PLANT OR BLDINGS WITH OUT PERMISSION FROM EASTMAN HR DEPT.

I was contacted by Eastman Corp. this afternoon, and informed that a person who,s name I will not post here,told Security that I had given him permission to take photographs, of the Eastman Plant, and that he was a member of the Eastman Camera Club, and that the President of the Club had given him permission to to pictures of the plant, I would never allow anyone in this club to take pictures of Eastman plant, or any of their property, with out them getting permission directly from the HR dept, which I dont think would be given anyway. Please as a Eastman Camera Club member, do not take pictures of any Eastman property with out permission from the Eastman HR dept. Any time or place that you are representing our Club be very Professional and make us all proud to have you
as a member of our club
Thank you

MINDY LAWYER BLUE RIDGE ADVENTURE TRIBE PROGRAM APRIL 16 2020 6PM MEETING LOCATION TO BE POSTED LATER IN MONTH.

Mindy Lawyer

Mindy Lawyer has a diverse and varied background that is truly an expression of her entire life.

She has spent the last 35 years traveling and living around the country and has had the privilege of calling 6 states “home”. She currently resides in North East Tennessee where she came on vacation 2 years ago, and decided not to leave. The beauty of the blue ridge mountains have completely captured her heart.

Mindy’s professional background is just as colorful. She had the wonderful opportunity to fund and run the Environmental Public Education Campaign for the Sierra Club in Florida. With that position came the opportunity to work with big cats at a phenomenal rescue facility. She has been an entrepreneur, veterinary practice manager, freelance writer, commercial furniture broker, and condominium manager. Although seemingly disjointed, the main focus of all her professional and personal activities has always been “people-centric”. Her love of people, and desire to create special environments and experiences for those she has worked with is paramount in any professional and personal situation she chooses to persue.

Her newest endeavor is creating and leading other free spirited souls on extreme outdoor adventures. The “Blue Ridge Adventure Tribe – BRAT” has been created to do just that. It is in its infancy, but the direction and trajectory is set. With new and exciting adventures being planned all the way into 2021, these events will be peppered with the unique, extreme, heart pounding adventure people crave, along with the most unforgettable camps and hikes around. When you become a part of the BRAT tribe, you have truly found a new family.

“The best part of my life is taking people out of their daily lives and showing them there IS more! With views and vistas that can only be earned with hard work and perseverance, there is so much beauty to be found that is kept secret from those who don’t know how to find it.”

Through photo journalizing, she and her fellow tribesmen can share their unique experiences with the world. She is always looking to improve on her skills, but with the magnificent canvas she has been provided here in Appalachia, there are plenty of places to practice.

She very much looks forward to sharing these locations and experiences with you.

Newsletter goal by Dee Browning

Newsletter goal by Dee Browning

Newsletter goal is to publish every quarter starting in March, with articles written by other members to submit I am sure this will be a successful endeavor.

I would like to cover a couple of topics I feel is import and will affect us all. First and foremost is that no one is exempt from learning. Even the seasonal photographer can still learn new things as photography is constantly evolving. Using myself as a photographer to emphasize this, I specialized in commercial property shoots which evolved mostly the personal care industry such as retirement communities, assistant living and memory Care facilities. This required that I work without a lot of equipment or assistance and be really good using the ambient lighting without lighting equipment for it could pose as a hazard and flashes were a distraction. To know what to shoot to be used in advertising of the facilities and communities I shot. So when it comes to that type of shooting I can say I have a lot of knowledge. I have done a lot of portrait shots, weddings and events, most using the ambient lighting at locations. What I am not proficient in and that is saying it mildly is studio work. I use my flash so little that I have to play with it first if I plan on using it. LOL! So, any input I can get from those more proficient in this field would be greatly appreciated.

Another is, some are really into the technical terms of photography, that does not mean those who are, are experts, though some are. They are just people whose minds work well using terminology. So don’t be frighten away or feel stupid, if you don’t understand ask questions that is how we learn.

Last is, photography is art and not everyone is going to like all of your images. But it does not mean your work is less than others. What equipment you use does not matter. I like to paint and I see photography in the same way. My camera captures my canvas. My processing tools are my brushes and paints. To add to this, I have heard people say in a derogatory way that a photograph was photoshopped. I like to point out when I hear this that Ansel Adams processing techniques in the darkroom is why we have dodge and burn in photoshop. So please keep an open mind to techniques that make a wonderful image as a photographer artistic touch for those sell!!!

So now please contribute to the club your time, to learn, teach, and share in the love of capturing images at our meetings, outings and newsletters. I like to say Art is creating or capturing what inspires you for inspiration creates art.
