John Bruno, a gifted local photographer, is extraordinarily skilled at capturing the moment in live performance. Whether taking pictures of musicians, singers, or dancers we see the magic and passion of live performances in every shot. In a talk, “Photographing Performances”, sponsored by the Photography Club of Long Island (PCLI) at the Port Washington Public Library, Bruno will be sharing insights into how he achieves his dramatic results on Wednesday, January 8th at 7:30 PM.
Bruno’s “how to” Powerpoint presentation includes equipment he uses, pre-show preparation, establishing rapport, camera settings, equipment, and post-processing. It concludes with a 14 minute slide show with a musical soundtrack featuring singers, dancers, and musicians. John has had the pleasure of photographing Jefferson Starship, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Bad Company, Orleans, Christopher Cross, The Temptations, Tom Chapin, and a host of others.
Besides his love of shooting performances, John is also an avid sports photographer. From 1972 to 1983 he was a freelance photographer for the New York Giants. Other credits include Past President of the Port Washington Camera Club and Past Vice President of the Photographic Federation of Long Island (PFLI). He is a PFLI judge and lecturer.
