With Photographer Jerry L. Jividen at North Water Brewing

Kent, Ohio — Main Street Kent is working with local business owners to create fun, educational programming uncovering the science behind their businesses and other exciting, relevant topics. The “Science of” program began in January, 2024 and continues with an eclipse theme in April as the community prepares for the Total Solar Eclipse on Mon., April 8.

On Wed., April 3 at 6:00pm, all are invited to attend “The Science of Total Solar Eclipse Photography” at North Water Brewing, located at 101 E. Craine Ave. Jerry L. Jividen, a photo instructor, will speak about taking pictures of the total solar eclipse. Jerry will share his photographs of prior eclipses and share tips on photographing the eclipse, including safety for the photographer and their equipment. Photographing the solar eclipse is not just about pictures of the darkening sun and moon. Learn about using the unique light of the event for other compositions. There will be a question and answer period after the talk.
