Obedience Training for Your Camera - Tuesday Edition

If you've never attended an Obedience Training for Your Camera workshop, you are invited to sit in, "kick the tires," and have some "aha moments". It's a "no obligation" visit where we discuss how to wrestle the best we can out of our camera. In a humorous nod towards dog training, we know that training is as much for the human as it is for the dog (er, camera).

We'll talk about how there are 5 predictable and distinct things that a viewer's eyes are compelled to do when looking at a photo AND that you know what they are AND that they mean the difference between merely mediocre and marvelously magnificent. That would put you in the driver's seat when deciding how and when to compose an image that is both visually and emotionally appealing, wouldn't it? Well, that's what we learn to do at Obedience Training for Your Camera.

OTFYC is a workshop series independent of MeetUp and the "Tuesday Edition" has about 6 regular, commited students, who are making noticeable, steady improvements in their photography. (So, ignore the numbers you see in the RSVP column. You'll have more company than that!

Come see why the "regulars" keep coming back. In addition to the content, it's a nice group with camaraderie.

For 8 months of the year, we meet on one Saturday per month (the 3rd Saturday), or on two Tuesdays per month (the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays). All meetings are at the Garden Ranch YMCA facility, in the conference rooms. Please RSVP for any class you wish to attend so I can advise you what to bring to enhance your learning experience; it varies according to date.

The first month is free. After that, there is a fee for this course. There are also several discounts available. (In addition to the course material, the costs cover meeting room fees, insurance and associated administrative items.)

    I will have to pass. I've. Attended a couple lighting classes recently plus I'm not quite ready for that avenue having to use my type of camera right now.

    In this workshop, we'll build on last month's discussion of exposure compensation and move into *flash* exposure compensation. Plus, we'll go through an in-depth discussion of layers and masks for post-processing. This would be a good session to bring a laptop and a flash unit (for those that have them).
