Photographer Jack Olson will be talking about today’s modern cameras and how to make camera settings and adjustments that will help you take pictures that you will be proud of when he takes the podium at Superstition Mountain Museum on Thursday, Feb. 8, at 2 p.m. as part of the museum’s free lecture series.
According to Jack, today’s digital cameras, whether it’s a DSLR, a point-and-shoot or a cell phone, are very sophisticated tools that can produce photos that are so realistic, it’s as though the final image appears to be more real life than a photograph.
Jack’s interest in photography began at an early age, back when cameras were just a black box with a lens, a push button and a roll of film tucked inside. Through the years, as cameras became more advanced, he had to change right along with them, buying new cameras, lenses, light meters, tripods and the rest of the gear necessary to keep current.
About ten years ago, Jack became a seasonal resident of Apache Junction and right away, fell in love with the Superstition Mountains. Jack is now a full-time resident of Apache Junction and hikes the mountains several times every week, always having his camera at the ready.
Jack is a member of the Artists of the Superstitions and his works can be seen on the windows and doors of the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce and on his Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/Images.in.the.Wilderness/.
All free lectures lectures at the museum are held on Thursday afternoons in the outdoor amphitheater on the grounds of the museum at 4087 N. Apache Trail (SR88) and last about one hour.
