Hardin County Photography Club April 17   


Parham will be presenting a program for the Hardin County Photography Club in Elizabethtown KY.  The program is offered at the Nolin RECC on Ring Road at 7:00.    

The program  covers the amazing and mysterious Reelfoot Lake and techniques for shooting there.    Reelfoot is in the extreme northwest corner of Tennessee and was formed by the New Madras earthquakes of 1811/1812.  The Mississippi River literally flowed backwards to fill up this incredible lake. 

Unbelievable stories surround this lake, mystery and murder.   But the lake remains and is home to some of the finest fishing and hunting (and photography) in the entire region.

The wildlife on Reelfoot is unbelievably abundant and diverse.    Bald Eagles, Osprey, Pelicans, Deer, Otters, Cormorants, Egrets… all flourish in this cypress studded lake.    The upper reaches are swamps that have the feel of the Everglades or the Louisiana swamps, coated with huge water lilies. 

Whether photographing from a pontoon boat, or winding around the cypress knees that jut out of the water in a canoe, Reelfoot is best photographed from the water.  That takes special considerations, and preparations. 

A few techniques covered in this program include panning, optimal depth of field for wildlife shooting,  shutter speed considerations vs ISO and shooting from a boat.
