Bloomington Photography Club:

Dr. Robert Wrenn

I always enjoyed taking family photos and when I turned
40, my wife bought me an underwater camera and we
became certified to scuba dive and took our children with
us and went to Bonaire for more than 30 years. When I
retired 8 1/2 years ago I joined the Bloomington
Photography Club and took three professional
photography courses in national parks out west. Whoo
hoo!!
I also started to take duck photos in the Stillwater Marsh
here in Bloomington near Monroe Lake. I took the photos
from the duck blinds after the duck hunting stopped in
January. Great collection of photos and some contest
winners. One of my duck photos taken in the Bosque Del
Apache in New Mexico won a contest in Ducks Unlimited
and was placed in their annual calendar, the month of
October 3 years ago. YAY!!
Most of my photos are "nature and wildlife." I have had
several winners in the Indiana Naturally contest and the
photos were placed in the Indianapolis Airport galleries for
several months each year. My nature photos are also on
display in the IU Health hospitals. 
It has been a pleasure working with the Bloomington
Photograph Club as a co-president. My delight came when
I took groups out to the duck blinds and out to lakes and
barns for Star Trails and Milky Way shots. We went last
January to Solsberry County west of Goose Pond and

took photos of migrating Short Eared owls. My photo won
a place in the clubs annual juried contest this year and
was on display at the Waldron and one copy was sold.
Ha!
