Harveys Participate In 3-D Photo Meeting

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Dwight Harvey and his mother, Naomi Harvey, both of Mc- Connellsburg, attended the Eastern Midwest Regional meeting of the National Steroscopic Association held at Sawmill Creek Resort near Sandusky, Ohio, this past weekend. Dwight was also invited to give a presentation during the stereoscopic program on Saturday.

Dwight presented a slide show entitled, "What I Photograph: My Stereo Biography," which featured a mix of 100 of his photographs - from family snapshots, to scenic views of Fulton County, winter photography, night photography and fireworks photos, experimental shots and his documentary photos of French and Indian War re-enactments and the C&O Canal. Dwight narrated the program and explained how he became involved in stereo photography, what equipment he uses and some of the techniques used to create the photos shown. Other programs presented on Saturday included "Space 3-D" by Jay Horowitz of the nearby NASA John Glenn Research Center and a slide show featuring photos by A.C. Platt, a stereophotographer of Sandusky and the nearby Lake Erie Islands during the 1870s and 1880s. This last program was presented by John Waldsmith, one of the world's leading collectors and historians of antique stereo photographs.

Dwight and Naomi also enjoyed a Saturday night showing of the recently released 3-D movie, "Battle for Terra," with a group from the regional meeting. They also enjoyed renewing their friendships with George Themelis, of Cleveland, an expert in various aspects of 3-D photography; Andrea Shetley, a professional photographer from Fayetteville, Tenn., (who also presented a program on black light photography; and Dave Glick, a fellow stereophotographer from State College.

Dwight also submitted entries for the onsite photographic competition held during the meeting and brought home an honorable mention ribbon for his digital composite image, "Predator."
