The Aug. 16 meeting of the Chattanooga Photographic Society will feature a 3-D photography and video experience presented by Andrea Shetley and Lee Pratt.
Shetley and Pratt will present a show of 3-D photography and videos, which consists of the top entrants and winners of an international 3-D photography competition (complete with music and narration), several slideshows (including Shetley’s recent trip to Australia), and videos from around the world.
This 3-D experience features some of the newest 3-D technologies and is in digital format, officials said.
Attendees will also receive information about 3-D displays and equipment, as well as a demonstration.
Shetley is the owner of a computer, photography and creative arts services company and has been involved in photography for almost 40 years and 3-D photography for the past 15 years. She is a member of the Fayetteville-Lincoln County Arts League and its special interest group, the Fayetteville Photography Club. She is also a member and past president of the Huntsville Photographic Society and a member of several 3-D organizations worldwide. Shetley has received several honors and recognitions from the Photographic Society of America for her contributions to supporting, promoting and teaching photography. Her interests are mostly nature-oriented, with special interests in macro, flowers and insects (especially praying mantises).
Pratt is a native Texan but has lived in the Huntsville, Ala., area for more than 40 years. He is a retired physicist and electronics engineer. His interest in 3-D photography started in the 1950s with his grandfather's hand stereoscope and his brother's View-Master viewer and reels. In the 1970s, he started taking his own stereo (3-D) photography, collecting 3-D equipment and entering 3-D photographic exhibitions. Pratt is a member of several 3-D photography organizations around the world and the Huntsville Photographic Society. His favorite photographic views are of scenic natural areas unspoiled by humans. He also does tabletop, computer and other experimental 3-D work.
The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. at the St. John United Methodist Church, located at 3921 Murray Hills Drive, Chattanooga, TN 37416.
