Brian J Zwit
Over 40 years ago, Brian discovered that photography provided a powerful means for expressing his vision of the world. Over the years, his love of the outdoors and photography as well as an aptitude for computer technology have morphed into a passion (some would say obsession) for capturing the elegance and majesty of the unique landscapes, wildlife, and flora of the United States. While the pursuit of nature takes him all over the country, he favors the west, northwest, northeast, and mid-Atlantic and, wherever he is, his love of hiking and backpacking takes him far beyond populated areas into settings which few people visit.
Brian’s images are in private residences and corporate offices and have appeared in regional magazines such as Wonderful West Virginia. Corporate clients have also used his images for promotional and internal publications.
Brian has been teaching workshops, field trips, and classes and speaking to camera clubs, schools, and other non-profits as well as for profit entities for over ten years. He recently reached a milestone: He taught Lightroom to his 500th student. Brian is well-known for his ability to distill complex topics to their essence and explain them in simple, easy to understand ways and is a recognized expert in digital workflow with Lightroom, Photoshop, Nik software, and other editing applications.
He generally uses Nikon cameras, Nikon and Sigma lenses, Induro tripods and ballheads, and a variety of accessories. Brian's favorite camera is the full-frame Nikon D750, a great compromise of resolution, noise, and speed, and favorite lens is the Sigma 20mm f/1.4. However, when you see him headed downtown or into the backcountry, he carries a Sony a7r, a mirrorless, 36-megapixel camera, which is much lighter to carry and whose image quality matches that of the Nikon. The occasional use of Zero Image pinhole, Holga, and Lomographic cameras provides him with an expanded array of ways to express himself and a res

Irene Sacilotto Life in the Chesapeake Bay - Tangier Island, a Visual Journey (7:30 PM EDT)
I am pleased you are interested in my presenting another program for the Vienna Photographic Society. I enjoyed meeting members of your club in the past and look forward to sharing an evening with them.
As of now, 3 April would be the best date. I think the club members might enjoy the following presentation.
Life in the Chesapeake Bay - Tangier Island, a Visual Journey
Just south of the Maryland line, in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, lies Tangier Island, VA. It is actually a series of small islands connected by narrow wooden bridges spanning marshes and tidal creeks. From the mainland, it can only be reached by boat or small plane. On its narrow roads, golf carts and bicycles replace cars as the primary mode of transportation. It is a charming community of shop owners and waterman, with many inhabitants making their living on the water as did their ancestors, oystering and crabbing. Recently, Tangier Island has been the focus of news stories as a possible casualty of climate change and sea level rise as each year flooding on the island becomes more frequent and erosion increases. This presentation is a visual journey, compiled from photos that I have taken over the years. It explores life on Tangier and paints a picture of the island, waterman community, and the wildlife that inhabits its marshes, lagoons, and tidal guts.
