Quabbin Visitors Center

Joe Oliverio will present his program: “Strategizing for a Great Nature Photo” to the Quabbin Photo Group on Monday, Nov. 27, at 7:30 p.m. at the Quabbin Visitors Center on Route 9 in Belchertown. In the digital age, it’s a lot easier and a lot less expensive to get good photos. But after the images start to pile up on your computer, most of people go out hoping for images that stand apart, even from most of their own photos. How can you improve the odds of getting the dramatic, well composed, well lit and sharp photos? Free and open to the public. 413-323-9212 or: www.quabbinphotogroup.org
