Captured Images: Photographers show off their best work

TUPELO – When a scene captures a photographer’s attention, it’s fitting for the photographer to attempt to capture the scene.
Results can vary, but every so often the photographer’s pursuit results in a stunning image.
Members of Southern Lights Collaborative photography club have traveled Mississippi, the nation and the world in search of interesting images.
Their work will be on display April 1 to 28 in the Lee County Library’s Helen Foster meeting room.
“The photographs could’ve been taken anywhere, but they were all taken by local photographers,” said Mark Stevens, Southern Lights member.
The exhibition will feature more than 60 photographs from 23 Southern Lights members. The club includes professional and amateurs, and their ages range from 15 to 90.
“They’re all saying, ‘These are my best shots,’” Stevens said. “They are picking out the two or three best photographs that they’ve taken recently and putting them out there.”
A free opening reception will be 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the library, and the public is invited. If a shot captures your attention, many of the photographs will be for sale at the end of the exhibit.
“Because of the wide variety,” Stevens said, “there’s going to be something that you find interesting or exciting.”
