Check out their line up of classes, workshops, and events that will be running through October of 2015, and again in the spring of 2016.
The day started with a discussion on composition. While all the technical aspects of digital photography are important, the most important thing to consider is what elements will be included in the image you put in front of the lens. We looked at some examples in preparation for going out into the Bear Trail across the lot from the Saw Mill.
As far as technical considerations, we did get into exposure, focus, white balance, and how we can best set up our cameras to both use the automatic technology built-in and make manual changes when necessary. Getting to know your camera better allows the photographer to quickly make changes so they can get back to framing up the composition and not missing the shot.
The final portion of the session focused on lenses (that was a bad pun). In addition to the lenses I brought for demonstration purposes, participants also shared their lenses and experiences shopping with different lens vendors.
All in all, it was a great day, a fun group, and a great location for holding a workshop. Hopefully, this post will encourage you to do more with your camera. At the very least, I hope it encourages you to get out and take more photos.
