Photographers and lovers of great photography are invited to enjoy upcoming guest speakers on Nov. 5th and Nov. 19th in the upstairs meeting room of the Visual Art Center at 7:00 pm. in Newport. The Yaquina Art Association Photographers (YAAP often invite notable photographers to share their expertise. Washington State photographer Greg Marshall will demonstrate his skills at Astro-Photography Nov. 5th and Donna McCoy will cover Macro Photography on Nov. 19th.
Greg Marshall loves photographing galaxies, quasars and nebulae from his backyard observatory in northern Clark County, WA. He rolls back the roof on the 8×10 foot shed and spends nights with a computer, telescope and camera, taking pictures of the flashes and gases of outer space.
By training, Marshall is an electronics engineer and computer-imaging expert, but the stars have led him into art. Retired from his work designing the brains of copiers, he spends long evenings focusing his attention upward and beyond. That inevitably turns a mind to spiritual dimensions and philosophy, he said.
