January Artists – Lancaster Camera Club
Lancaster Camera Club will be showcasing a range of photography from Lancaster County to wildlife, people to foreign lands. Two featured photographers from the exhibit are Don Shenk and Ines Anderson.
Don Shenk recently released two books, Seasons of Lancaster County: Home to the World’s Largest Amish Community and Lancaster County: A Keepsake. When he is photographing, he is most excited to capture that one image that inspires. He focuses on improving his skills as well as finding more challenging images to capture. His photographs are as they are taken and not post-processed with programs like Photoshop®. This requires having his camera with him everywhere he goes. Shenk is from the Southern End of Lancaster County and graduated from Penn Manor High School and Lancaster Bible College. He continues to love the beauty of Lancaster County which is the theme in most of his photographs. Shenk was made Senior Fellow of the Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography in 2016.
Ines Anderson is a traveler with time spent in Poland, England, the US and Thailand. She currently resides in Lititz, PA. Although having a passion for photography her whole life, she has focused on it during the last 3 years as she travels America. Anderson photographs a wide range of subjects including landscapes, nightscapes, wildlife and macro as well as people’s portraits and events. She feels that her camera has brought her closer to nature and to people. It has taught her to notice and see things that she would have otherwise missed.
The Lancaster Camera Club has been a meeting place for professional and amateur photographers to share and inspire since the 1980s. The club host monthly meetings, along with a variety of special events including juried competitions, photos shoots, trips, workshops and lectures.
