Weekend of Photography

February 27 @ 8:00 am - February 28 @ 5:00 pm

Presented by the Coastal Camera Club of Lewes and not affiliated with the community.

The Coastal Cameral Club presents a “Weekend of Photography”. This is our Virtual Photo Beach Bash.

This year there are two events, presented as online Zoom webinars!

Saturday, February 27th starting at 3:00PM EST: “The Heart of the Photograph” with David duChemin, lasting about 2 1/2 hours including Q&A.

Sunday, February 28th starting at 3:00PM EST: “Putting more Emotion into your Wildlife Photographs” with Kristi Odom, lasting about 2 1/2 hours including Q&A.

The Coastal Camera Club is located in Lewes, Delaware, USA.

Prior to COVID-19, our club hosted the Photo Beach Bash in late winter to early spring on one weekend day at a conference hotel in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. A large in-person conference is obviously not going to happen this season. Thus, we will hold a virtual event using Zoom. There will be two speakers on two different afternoons over one weekend in late February 2021.

This event will be free of charge to the first 500 people who sign up on Eventbrite. All who register will receive an opportunity for a free download of two of David duChemin’s e-books.

The Coastal Camera Club is a tax exempt 501(c)3. We would greatly appreciate tax exempt donations using the DONATE link below. All those who donate will be automatically entered to the following three raffles:

(1) a giveaway of one signed copy of David’s newest book, The Heart of the Photograph, from which he shamelessly stole the name of his lecture;

(2) a signed print from Kristi Odom, and

(3) a raffle for a zoom portfolio review with Kristi.

The winner of David book will be drawn at 8pm on the 27th and Kristi’s two prizes will be drawn on the 28th at 8pm. Winners will be notified by email.

In addition, the CCC is holding our regular club meetings via zoom for the foreseeable future. Any interested photographers are welcome to join our club by going to our website at

Saturday February 27, 2021 starting at 3PM, lasting about 2 1/2 hours including Q&A.

“The Heart of the Photograph”, David duChemin

Illustrated by inspiring photographs from around the world, “The Heart of the Photograph” Virtual Lecture with David duChemin is a 90-minute conversation (including Q&A time) exploring ten powerful ideas about the creation of more engaging photographs. This webinar will discuss techniques and ways of thinking about the creation of images designed to engage human imagination and emotion, including questions of vision and intent, the use of space and time, the creation of depth, and the use of point of view. David will also discuss mood and mystery, storytelling, and what this all means for our choices of moments as well as more practical considerations, like the more creative use of exposure tools, composition, and more. This will be a compelling lecture with (and about) heart that you will remember for a long time.

As part of the “Heart of the Photograph” virtual lecture, David will provide free downloads of two of his best-selling eBooks (a $42 value) to every guest, and see above for the raffle of one signed copy of his newest book, “The Heart of the Photograph”, from which he shamelessly stole the name of this lecture. In addition to the free downloads, this presentation will be recorded and made available so you can go back to experience it again, and those who are unable to attend can still benefit from the presentation.

“Putting more Emotion into your Wildlife”, Kristi Odom

Kristi’s years of photographing personal projects and conservation work have taught her a unique way of seeing emotion and have forever changed how she approaches photographing wildlife. Animals have a different way of showing and expressing emotion. How do you take an emotion and make it two dimensional? How do you get people to connect and feel when they look at an image? Learn tips and tricks on how to put more emotion into your wildlife photography ultimately creating a more impactful image.

As part of her talk, Kristi will raffle off one signed print and also raffle off a private portfolio review of your work via zoom for some very lucky people.

Kristi’s presentation will be recorded and made available so you can go back to experience it again, and those who are unable to attend can still benefit from the presentation.
