Bob Secrets

Acts of Cactography on an Otherwise Dull Afternoon

Want to make your cactus and succulents look terrific, at least in your photos? Want to see a movie where it’s done? Watch SCCSS member, photographer, and filmmaker Bob Caplan show you simple but crucial tips, ones used by professionals in journals such as National Geographic. Then sit back and watch him practice his craft in a newly filmed short drama, SECRETS, a work in which, wouldn’t you know, beautifully filmed cactus and succulents play a support role.
Who is this for? Whether you take photos or just admire good photography, you may find this presentation informative. For those who take pictures, these tips will get you the best pictures whether you use a smart phone, point-and-shoot, or something more complex. As for Bob’s film, tale of adventure and suspense surrounding a secret spanning three generations. Our Society has been chosen for it’s premier public showing.

Bob and his wife, Anita, have been adventure travelers and documentary photographers for more than forty years. Their work has been shown to conservation and wilderness groups such as the Sierra Club and the Audubon Society.

[Ed: Bob and Anita have contributed a lot to South Coast C&SS, both have held board positions for many years.]
