Prendergast Library to host photography program

JAMESTOWN – Prendergast Library will host An Evening with the Artist at 7 p.m. Feb. 27.

Chad Ecklof, whose work is on display in the library art gallery, and other members of the Chautauqua County Camera Club will present a lesson in High Dynamic Range Photography.

“You can learn how to take stunning photographs with any digital camera and inexpensive software on your computer,” Ecklof said.

The HDR style involves taking three or more exposures of the same shot and combining the digital information from them into one. Participants in the class will observe the process as pictures of an object are taken and a highly realistic finished product is created.

The class is free and open to the public. Those attending are invited to bring their cameras.

Ecklof’s exhibit, “My Jamestown in HDR,” runs through March 15. Viewing hours are 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The library is located at 509 Cherry St., Jamestown. For information, call 484-7135.
