The Springfield Free Public Library will offer “Secrets of Landscape Photography,” a presentation by Joel Simpson, at 7:00 PM on Monday, April 29. The purpose of this program is to teach those in attendance how to take strong photographic images of landscapes, whether they are images from your backyard or from travels to exotic places. Mr. Simpson is the author of the recently released book, Earthforms: Intimate Portraits of Our Planet, which includes his best natural scenic photographs from the past fifteen years. During the course of the presentation, Mr. Simpson will focus on several of the photographs in his book, explaining why he chose them, what he had to do to capture them, and how he used computer software to subtly modify the images.
