Back to Basics in Photography with Beth and Chela!

Union Station: 800 NW 6th Ave, Portland, OR(edit map)

Good News for those who need to brush up/learn for the first time some basic instruction on the  important apects of taking pictures!

Beth Buglione (a long time member of WLPT) and Chela Melendez presented this workshop to our group last year and it was very popular. 

Beth and Chela are both  professional photographer!

Check out their websites:  www.throughlightphotograpy.com and www.bethbuglione.com

We will meet at the library on Thurman and 23rd in Northwest Portland from 1pm to 3 pm.  From there we will go on over to Union Station from 3:30 to 5:00 pm.  Perhaps Chinese Food near there would be a great adventure too!  I know a good place.

The workshop will cover:

1.   Using your camera on manual not auto...you are smarter than the camera!

2.  Understanding the relationship between speed,

 f-stops and ISO.   

3.  Using the light meter and histogram on your camera.

Beth and Chela make everything seem easy with a lot of patience and even more humor in their workshops and followup Photo shoot!  Join us for a very education and enjoyable afternoon.

Meetup does not allow for a waitlist when we charge.  So if you are interested in the meetup and it is full, you must watch to see if a space becomes available and sign up asap.

    OK so the weekend retreat is up on the website. You can sign up for the weekend at

    See you at the beach!

    Ok ladies: We found a house that we can take 10 people on a photography retreat. People will need to share bedrooms to fill the house and to make it cost effective but it's very spacious and in Rockaway, which is also close to Oceanside and other beautiful beaches.

    We will arrive Friday night so everyone can work that day if needed. The workshop will run through Sunday morning. We have available dates in April.

    We will have a meet and greet Friday as you arrive. Saturday is a full day of work with classroom and photography from sun up to dark. Sunday we will share our work and have critique time. This will be a full immersion into photography.

    We can offer this for $200 - first come, first served.

    Who is in?

      I will give my tentative yes, pending it is not the 5th; I have to be at a triathlon that date.

    Thank you everyone who attended yesterday's workshop! We had so much fun working with you ladies. Question: If we organized a weekend retreat for just WLPT members at a house on the coast, who would be interested in going? We would need enough people to make it cost effective. We could fully immerse you in the basics and spend more time answering questions. What do you think?

      I think that would be of great benefit to my learning style…. Hands on makes so much more sense than just reading from a book. Would of course depend on when and how much, but put me on the list for the particulars.

    Count me in...it sounds fun and a great learning experience. I'm reading my digital photog book and the jargon makes sense after yesterday's class. Thanks!

    A bit basic for me, but great to have reminders and overview.

    That sounds like a great idea. It would depend on where/when and how much. :-) I'm super booked during the Spring/Summer but really am interested in learning photography.

    I'm so glad I attended this meetup. Valuable, fun, and interesting. Now to get out in the field and try some of the things I learned. A big thank you to our presenters.

    Nancy,
    I live in Tigard. Happy to give you a ride downtown. I can meet you off of 99. Starbucks just north of Gaarde/ McDonald on the east side? 12pm?

    I am new to the Portland area and have never driven downtown and am a little apprehensive. I live in the King City/Tigard area. Anyone out there that I could catch a ride with??? I can meet you anywhere SW. Thanks a lot.

    Will anyone be willing to give me a ride from the library to Union Station? It's 1.6 miles, a bit beyond comfortable walking distance.

      May I ride with you as well? I had back surgery 3 weeks ago and that walk is beyond my capabilities at this time.

    • Laurie D.

      Glad to see I'm not the only one with issues. I can drive, too. So most of the instruction will be at one end or the other?

    I have been interested in photography (more like "point and shoot") for a long time. I am a beginner and want to learn more. This seems like an ideal class for me to start with. :-)
