BIRDS of KENTUCKY/PHOTOGRAPHY:

Dr. Doty was first introduced to the wonders of photography by his high school principal and has maintained a fascination ever since. He has recorded 60,000 photographic images.

News from Campbellsville University
Dr. Robert Doty, a retired Campbellsville University English Professor, will be having a nature photo exhibit of birds from March 19 to March 30, 2012, at Campbellsville University's Art Gallery, 205 University Drive, Campbellsville, KY.
The exhibit is open on Mondays and Fridays from 8am-5pmET/7am-4pmCT, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:45am-12:15amET/9:45am-11:45amCT and 2pm-5pmET/1pm-4pmCT; and on Wednesdays from 9am-5pmET/8am/4pmCT.
Doty was first introduced to the wonders of photography by his high school principal and has maintained a fascination ever since. His first camera was a used Ricoh twin lens reflex. He has recorded 60,000 photographic images using slides, negatives and digital technology since then.
"Photographing birds presents distinctive challenges because sometimes they won't stay still or tolerate humans in their space. Good photographs are the result of skill, patience, access and luck," Doty said.
There are few human endeavors that call forth such a range of effort like photography does because it can be creative, technical, scientific, propagandistic, inspirational or aesthetic, Doty said. Design, form, color, physics, chemistry, art, history, nature and imagination are all elements to be explored with photography he said.
Doty holds five degrees: an associate of science from Henry Ford Community College in Michigan, bachelor of arts from Georgetown College, bachelor of divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, master of arts in English literature and a doctorate in Victorian literature from the University of Kentucky. -From Campbellsville University
