“Panoramic Photography” By Joseph Meehan
Professional photographer Joseph Meehan is the author of the first book ever written on panoramic photography. At the next Camera Club meeting Tuesday, April 21st at 7pm, Joe will display a number of his panoramic prints along with a slide presentation illustrating the diverse subjects he has photographed using both “pan” film cameras and modern digital methods. Within a decade of photography’s beginnings in the 19th century, panoramic images were being exposed on daguerreotype plates using specialized cameras. Today, this unique form of picture making can be produced without the need for special cameras using software thus ushering in a whole new era for this unique form of photography.
Joseph Meehan has been a professional photographer, writer and teacher for over 35 years. Hundreds of his photographs have appeared in books and magazines in the US Europe and Asia. His work has been featured in Fuji Film, Nikon, Olympus, SanDisk and Hasselblad advertisements and his style has been characterized by the New York Times as “…. alive with color and sparkling with light.” Meehan served as Senior Technical Editor of Photo District News for 12 years and is the former editor of the Photography Yearbook first published in Great Britain in 1935. He has written over 500 articles that have appeared in such magazines as Popular Photography, Outdoor Photography, View Camera Magazine, and the British Journal of Photography. He is the author of 25 books on photographic technique the most recent of which is “Mood, Ambience and Dramatic Effects in Photography” in the Kodak Art of Digital Photography Series, winner of the how-to book of the year by the library council. Meehan recently served as expedition photographer for the history making research on the Arctic Narwhal in the high Canadian Arctic and Northern Greenland sponsored by the Smithsonian Museum, the Explorers Club, Harvard University and the National Geographic Society <www.narwhal.org>.
