Emilie Talpin

Emilie Talpin grew up in Chalon sur Saône, France, the birthplace of Nicéphore Niépce and the first photograph.  Despite this background, she got into photography very late and in 2018 joined a local camera club where she met a group of talented photographers and was inspired to dive deeper into the art of capturing moments in time.  Now, everywhere she goes, it is with her trusted camera by her side.  Lately, she has been concentrating on bird, wildlife, and macro photography, in particular water drop refraction, but will occasionally stray with friends to an astro or landscape photoshoot.  As a former French teacher, she is inherently eager to learn and try new material; a practice applied outside the classroom as she explores the world around her and chases her next photo.

Emilie is currently an OM SYSTEM Ambassador; you can read her articles: https://learnandsupport.getolympus.com/about-emilie-talpin.  She was featured in two B&H photography series for bird photography, one in the winter and one on the Coast of New England.  She has a growing YouTube channel, where she publishes videos every Sunday to help other photographers.

A photographer aims to create images that capture viewers' interest and transport them to a visual adventure.  Unfortunately, very often, photographers are so focused on their subject that they forget their surroundings and might miss out on telling a more compelling story.  Join OM SYSTEM Ambassador Emilie Talpin on a photographic journey as she presents images, shares how she captures birds, and creates a fuller story from her experiences.  In the lecture, Emilie will talk about her adventures in bird photography from the northeast of America to a riverbank in France.  She will focus on the importance of telling richer stories and how she approaches each adventure using our modern cameras' unique features. 

SAT 10-11:30 A.M.

Fun with Macro and Water Drops - the art of capturing insects and refraction

Meeting Location: Celebration Hall at St. Anastasia, 5205 A1A South

Ticket Cost: $25

Max No People: 30

During this presentation, OM SYSTEM Ambassador Emilie Talpin will immerse you in the world of insects but also water drop photography, known as refraction.  If you are not familiar with this term, refraction is when the light passes from one medium and into another, affecting the direction of the light.  In macro photography, the capture of a background subject into a foreground water drop is a good illustration of refraction.  We will learn how to capture such images and go over the equipment needed as well as techniques and tips to make a successful macro photo.
