In Person & Zoom Meeting – Jerry Reece

Often you hear about “Rules of Composition”. Rather than rules, I prefer to use the term principles or perhaps guides. We will cover a variety concepts and approaches to guide your decision making as you consider composing an image. The program serves as an introduction to composition for those new to photography as well as providing a few reminders and suggestions for the more experienced photographer.

Doors open at 6:30 pm (both Zoom and Online) for a social time before the presentation. Visitors are always welcome!

Presented by Jerry Reece

is a retired educator with a 28-year stint as a school principal in the San Bernardino City Schools, retiring in 1994. He is a San Bernardino native having lived mostly in Southern California with brief stints in Nevada and Texas. Photography has been his primary hobby for the past 72 years. Jerry was married to his high school sweetheart from his early college days to her passing in 2015. He and his late wife, Bessie, joined the Redlands Camera Club 20 years ago and both served various club duties. Jerry is a life member and past president of the Club. He was honored with a “lifetime membership” in the Redlands Camera Club several years ago.

A Nikon shooter for many years, he currently uses Fuji mirrorless X-T5 cameras, enjoying the quality of the Fuji lens and, most of all, the light-weight aspect of the Fuji system.

Jerry is primarily a landscape photographer with additional interests in street, flowers, travel and Americana. Photography started out for him as a documentation of life experiences and as a classroom tool to supplement history and science lessons. Interest was later fired up by a desire to find an artistic expression to balance his basic mindset which is more science and social science oriented. Over the years he became interested in the patterns he was seeing which led to a focus on abstracts.

He has presented a variety of programs to several camera clubs in Southern California and in Texas. Now back in California and living in nearby Menifee, he is excited to again become active with the Redlands Club.
