Get ready for an exciting lineup of photography classes from J.W. Johnston and Kevin Q. Gray this fall!

Learn composition, the elements and principles of design all on your iPhone (or compact camera) with J.W. Johnston. Join him for a three (3) part workshop meeting October 5, 12 and 19 at 1:00pm-3:00pm.

On Thursday October 17th at 6:00pm join Kevin Q. Gray for a talk and demonstration of 19th Century Wet Plate Photography. This process was used to create glass plate negatives, ambrotypes, and tintypes, and was the main photographic technique used during the American Civil War. It will be a very interesting talk indeed!

Our third class will be Saturday November 9th, 1:00pm-3:00pm with Kevin Q. Gray again. This time he will teach us how to use a camera as simple as the one on our smart phones to create high quality portraits using natural light and simple photographic techniques. Bring the camera you feel most comfortable with for this class.

The Huntington Memorial Library is very excited to announce that we will be hosting an Afternoon Tea on Saturday September 14th at 1:30pm in preparation for the upcoming release of the Downton Abbey movie in theaters September 20th. There will be several fun activities at the tea including a short talk about the history of Afternoon Teas and etiquette and watch the series finale so we are all caught up on where Downton left off before the movie comes out all while enjoying a full tea served with sweet and savory delights AND a photo booth so come dressed up in your 20s apperal. Don’t have anything to wear? No problem! Props will be donated from the Underground Attic to set the scene. We didn’t stop there! The library will also be raffling off a teapot and two tickets to see the movie when it comes out!
