Two-Day Photography Workshop

AN EYE TOWARD CREATIVE PICTURE MAKING
The Georges River Land Trust is offering a two-part photography workshop with Michael Sacca, the Land Trust’s artist in residence. Digital camera users will learn simple ways to dramatically improve their pictures. Part one will be a practical evening session on Thursday, October 17, from 6:30-9:00 PM with a combination hands-on and PowerPoint presentation. Then, on Saturday, October 19, from 9:30 AM-12:30 PM, you’ll take your skills to the field on a trip to a Land Trust preserve in Union (rain date is Sunday, October 20). The class is limited to 12 people and the registration fee is $25. Please call the Land Trust at 594-5166 to reserve your spot.
Whether you are chasing butterflies or grandchildren with your camera, this workshop will help you understand how to get sharper, better-exposed images that will dazzle and amaze. This workshop is designed for participants who want more creative control over their digital cameras. It is assumed participants have a basic familiarity with point-and-shoot digital cameras.
The two broad subjects to be covered can be divided into technical and aesthetic areas. You will gain greater control in areas such as exposure, movie and scene settings, manual overrides and flash settings; learn how and when to use settings for sharper, properly exposed images; become familiar with file settings such as size, type (jpg and RAW); get insights into better composition, developing story ideas and a personal vision; improve image quality (contrast, color, sharpness) once you have the images on a computer; and improve archive and file management techniques.
