Folks - we still have 3 slots left for this great workshop <http://www.cphoto...; - which starts this Friday, 10/27 The goal of the workshop is to help persons interested in landscape and nature photography learn how to improve their skills in capturing quality images in the field. The workshop will provide opportunities to discuss important aspects of capturing successful images, to take photographs in two nearby locations during an afternoon of shooting, and to view and critique photographs taken in the field. The critiques will permit an open discussion by all participants and the sharing of help and advice by all. Emphasis will be placed on such important characteristics of strong photographs as composition, balance, lighting, exposure, and sharpness. Participants will be expected to be thoroughly familiar with their camera equipment and its usage. Either digital or film cameras may be used by participants, but the experience will be enhanced with cameras that have the capability of overriding automatic settings with manual choices. Ben Greenberg is a lifelong resident of Virginia who moved back to Charlottesville in 2002. He has photographed scenic locations throughout Virginia and the nation for more than forty years. His photographs have won local and national awards and competitions and have been featured in numerous individual and group shows. His images can be found on his web site, www.bengreenberg.com, and are available in central Virginia shows, galleries and shops. Ben's dramatic photographs reflect his uncompromising commitment to capturing the natural beauty of his subjects under the very best conditions. This commitment frequently involves multiple trips to shooting locations and the patience to wait until there is the perfect combination of conditions, lighting and subject matter. As Ben likes to say, "the harder I work, the luckier I get". Ben is well-known for his commitment to mentoring and helping photographers interested in improving their skills and their images. Join Ben in an interesting and inspiring weekend devoted to capturing quality landscape photographs.
