Orlando Camera Club present’s Holly Manus as September’s Member Spotlight.
Holly was born in Rochester, New York. She met her husband, John, at FSU where they both graduated from the Business School. John and Holly have 2 children and have lived in Orlando for the last 20 years.
Holly got her first Canon camera as a gift when she was 17 years old and has been shooting ever since. She currently uses a Canon 6D and does most of her post processing in Lightroom.
When her 2 children went off to college, Holly started taking classes at Crealde School of Art. Her first instructor, Rick Lang, told the class: “If you want to become a good photographer, you have to take a lot of pictures and look at a lot of pictures”. Holly has been committed to shooting every week and has seen her skills grow over the last 6 years. She is currently a Fellow in the photography department at Crealde School of Art, where she volunteers for various art events every month.
Holly has recently worked on two documentary photography projects and has learned a lot by working collaboratively with a group of 10-14 photographers. She likes abstracts, architecture and urban decay. She is currently drawn to graffiti in alleys.
Holly became a member of the Orlando Camera Club 3 years ago. She enjoys learning from others and is amazed at the talent and generosity shared by club members. She always enjoys seeing everyone’s images on competition night and finds it interesting to see how others view the world. Holly has learned a lot from the speakers she’s met during club meetings and sponsored events.
Holly continues to learn and grow as a hobbyist and strives to create images that people will want to hang on their walls.
