Photography by Mike Hedger

Exhibit: December 2005 - January 2006

Samford University Library hosts Photography by Mike Hedger.

The exhibit consists of photographs showcased on the main entry level around the grand staircase.

Nature can offer countless opportunities for photography. It may involve "macro" or closeup photography of a flower or mushroom. Or, it may be challenging to try to capture a Fall landscape, and compose it well. It may also involve photographing a waterfall, and to experiment with your exposure to give your picture a "silk" look.

This exhibit represents some of my better work, and represent the types of photography that I just mentioned. They have been taken locally, and throughout the Southeast.

Please contact Mike Hedger for more information and about ordering prints: 205-871-9056

Closing date: January 2006.
