Portraiture – the art of creating portraits. October 18, 2018 at the Lake House 6:30 p.m. social and 7:00 p.m. presentation. Open to all Seabrook residents and visitors without charge

This Meeting will focus on practical approaches to capture better portraits.    The session will include tips on proper lighting, posing, choosing a background and getting crisp images.


Our speaker, Bill Nelson moved to Seabrook Island 14 years ago with his wife Linda.  Bill and Linda grew up in sunny California and have lived from Honolulu to London and Connecticut to Arizona.  Bill worked in the computer industry for IBM for 44 years before retiring at the end of 2008. 

 Bill’s almost lifelong hobby in photography began at the age of 7 with a 35mm camera and a light meter.  While his first instinct is to approach photography from the technical point of view, this session will emphasize the “artistic” aspects of this important photographic specialty.
