Intermediate Nature Photography Class and Exhibition
Saturday, April 9 at 12 pm (PT)
Join Vicky Stromee for a series of intermediate workshops on nature photography. On the first Saturday we will meet in the Education Building at noon to discuss techniques and tips for nature photography including lighting, depth of field, shutter speed and lenses, shooting in RAW file format and the use of histograms. Then we’ll head out to the grounds to take our best shots! We’ll wrap up the day with a discussion about post-production adjustments. On the second and third Saturdays we’ll start with a critique of the previous Saturday’s pictures (bring in your five best images from the previous Saturday); we’ll project them on the large screen and conduct a structured critique of each other’s work. Then we’ll head back out on the grounds for more shooting. On the last day we’ll discuss printing, framing and hanging options for a potential student exhibition.
