Photography by Charlie Stannard Opens at Smyrna Public Library Art Gallery

The July/August art gallery exhibit for 2016 has opened - Photography by Charlie Stannard. Charlie’s exhibit is on display until August 31. The art gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the Smyrna Library. The art gallery exhibits are sponsored by the Friends of Smyrna Library.


Though born in Georgia, I grew up in Connecticut. I worked in advertising and marketing research, my last job being at Earthlink in Atlanta. Upon retiring I decided to rekindle my interest in photography. I took a course at the Showcase School, attended a number of photo workshops, joined two camera clubs, and upgraded my camera to digital. I am a Canon shooter, as much by accident as preference. The one thing I have learned from photo competitions is all camera brands produce great images.

I process my images with Photoshop and print them on my own printer. I do not overly process my images in Photoshop, though I do find the Nix suite of plug-ins useful. My printer is a Canon Pro9500 and it generally does a better job than CVS or Costco. 

I do not have a subject matter specialty. As the exhibit shows, I shoot just about anything: flowers, birds, animals, landscapes, people. Regarding style, I do not have one though I do try to shoot things a little differently, frequently using multiple exposures when shooting flowers.
