Smart Phone Photos
There are basic forms of composition and placement upon which all visual art rests. Once upon a time, the technical aspects of picture taking had been complicated. Not so in this day and age. All cameras contain computers to evaluate the intensity of light and control the sharpness of images. With smart phone camera improving each year this process is ever more simplified. However, no matter how automatically a device adjusts exposure and focus it is where YOU POINT the camera and WHEN you pull the trigger that dictates the power of the picture. In this one session class you will learn these fundamental guidelines to apply to your image-taking experiences and will discover the fine points of dynamic picture taking.

U.S. Imperialism in the Pacific
ADULT
U.S. Imperialism in the Pacific
On April 21st, 1898, the United States declared war against Spain. It would be the first overseas conflict fought by the U.S. It involved major campaigns in both Cuba and the Philippines.
Eventually the United States would be acquiring additional territory as well as subjugating the Philippine people resulting in a war which lasted until 1902.
This presentation traces the rise of America as a world power with the beginning of the Spanish American War, the subsequent acquisition of territories in both the Pacific and the Caribbean, and the subjugation of the Philippine people after the end of the Spanish American War [nicknamed by Sec. of State John Hay, (NOT Teddy Roosevelt) “The Splendid Little War”!]
The presentation will be a power point with ample visuals and even film clips from the Spanish American War.
Focus of the discussion will be based on the book, The Imperial Cruise by James Bradley.

This event will be held at the Stone Harbor Library on September 27th @ 5:30 p.m.
Life That Glows
ADULT
Life That Glows
Discover an intriguing hidden world of glowing organisms found right here in New Jersey! Some objects, when subjected to short wave ultraviolet radiation, will emit another type of light, with lower energy and longer wavelength. This phenomenon is referred to as ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence (UVIVF). To find out what fluoresces in our area, Jennifer started a new series last year in Burlington County Parks called “Life that glows” where participants walk in the dark with special UV flashlights to find glowing life. Fungi, lichens, plants, spiders, birds, and many insects and other invertebrates all give off UV fluorescence. This presentation will display the photographic observations from those outings and summarize preliminary findings of Bulava’s research in this exciting new field to science, UVIVF.
