Hauber to Display Photography at ABAC Art Show February 26
TIFTON– Timothy Hauber, a business administration major at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, will showcase his photography exhibit, “Learning Curve” at the Bowen Art Gallery beginning on Feb. 26. A reception will take place from 4-6:30 p.m. with light refreshments provided. His photography will be on display in the gallery until March 7.
“The idea of this show came about last semester after I was talking with Donna Hatcher about having upgraded my camera,” said Hauber. “She said she had a show coming up and asked if I wanted to have something in it. After we went through a handful of photos I had put together, she decided I had more than enough to do an entire exhibit and asked if I was up for it.”
Hauber has been to almost all of the receptions for the art shows here at ABAC over the last two years so he thought maybe he could inspire or reach someone in the same way some of the artists here at ABAC have inspired him.
Hauber bought his first digital camera in 2000 and currently is on his third and most advanced camera to date. Together, he and his wife have amassed over 100,000 photos. He tries to use the camera to capture moments in time that help to remind him of the beauty of the world around him.
The assortment in the exhibit focusses mainly on timing and light.
“It requires seeing a moment and understanding the light beforehand, which has proven to be a challenge and a learning curve that will continue throughout my photography,” said Hauber. “Light is the most phenomenal part for me as the cameras nowadays have the ability to see the full spectrum even when we can’t, and can be adjusted to create alternate views of the same scene without the use of Photoshop or post processing, which can be seen in the “Colors of Fall” arrangement and a few others.”
Hauber finds the challenge in capturing the end result with the camera. With the technology of cameras and photography constantly evolving, it is becoming harder to remember all the possibilities each have, providing an almost never-ending learning experience.
The Florida native currently resides in Fitzgerald. He plans to continue towards a Master’s degree in finance or accounting and possibly pick up his Certified Public Accountant license along the way. He and his wife, Crystal, both attend ABAC and should graduate in the fall. They have two children.
