Kamloops from a different perspective
A photography festival shooting to show off extraordinary images of the Tournament Capital captured by local photographers is kicking off tomorrow (March 1).
Kamloops Thru the Lens is set to launch with an opening session running from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, 7 Seymour St. W.
The festival will run through March 23, showcasing more than 20 stunning images — all shot by members of the Kamloops Photo Arts Club within the boundaries of the City of Kamloops and the Tk’emlups Indian Band reserve.
Images include shots of the new roundabout on Lorne Street stitched together to show a unique perspective, the iconic Moose Squadron fighter jet lit by moonlight, an infra-red tornado over Mount Paul and other unique shots of buildings and landmarks every Kamloopsian will recognize.
Throughout the festival, Kamloops Photo Arts Club members will be available on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to explain how the images were accomplished and captured.
