Winter Photography in Yellowstone National Park
About Bill and Rosemary Galloway
Lakeway residents Bill and Rosemary Galloway have taken photographs (beginning with black and white film) for more than 50 years.
Bill was given his father’s Argus C-3 when a teenager. The camera had traveled to Europe in World War II, so it was not only a tangible piece of history, but introduced Bill to the basics of photography: exposure, depth of field, and framing. Bill increasingly turned to color, both for recreation and in his profession as a geologist.
Rosemary became the family portrait artist, a position she retains.
An introduction to the emerging power of digital photography on a winter photo safari to Yellowstone reinvigorated their enthusiasm for their favorite subjects, landscape, wildlife, wildflowers, and travel.
Photography safaris have taken them to the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, New England, the Rocky Mountains, Yellowstone, and the national parks of the Southwest. Closer to home, they have for many years walked the trails of Inks Lake State Park and traveled the byways of the Texas Hill Country, documenting the profusion and diversity of wildflowers, birds, and butterflies that grace the Hill Country. Their photographs have appeared in Texas Co-Op Power and Lakeway Voice magazines, Hill Country Alliance calendars, and online in the National Habitat Adventures Wildlife Photo of the Day series.
To prepare your images, resize the long side to 2000 pixels, resolution of 72 ppi, color space sRGB, and name them 1FirstName_LastName.jpg, 2FirstName_LastName.jpg.
You may ask for a critique on your images or simply “Show and Tell.”
Please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, November 19th. Please put “November Critiques” in the subject line.
