Members’ Forum March 24, 2020 – Egypt: Cairo and Points South, Colena Turner
Since high school, Colena has enjoyed taking pictures. With her film camera, she became the family photographer for get-togethers. In 2003, she purchased her first digital camera and has expanded her interests to nature, macro, abstract, portrait, event and street photography. Colena has used several Nikon DSLRs including D90 and D7100. In 2016, looking for a lighter and smaller camera to take on a cruise, she purchased a Fujifilm X-E2. She has since added a Fujifilm X-T2 to her camera bag and subsequently sold all of her Nikon equipment.
She joined NVPS in February 2012 and has served as coordinator for Members’ Gallery and Ask Me A Question table. As a volunteer photographer, Colena has shared her talent with the Professional Woman’s Alliance, Help Portrait, Loudoun Foto Trek, Cornerstones, Library of Congress National Book Festival, Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Wreaths Across America, Honor Flight and Reston Association. For the past ten years, she has served in the Photography Ministry at her place of worship, Heritage Fellowship Church. Colena continues to learn about the art of photography through workshops.
For Cairo and Points South, Colena will share highlights of her eleven-day trip to Egypt with her husband.
