register at www.lgsrecreation.org Fee: $87.00
This 4-hour workshop teaches beginners and photo enthusiasts how to produce professional quality images of children, family and friends with consumer digital cameras. Sounds too good to be true? It's not! Jeffery Luhn's method is mostly about what to do in front of the camera; choosing a good angle, using window light, avoiding harsh sunlight, recognizing good locations in and around your home, controlling your subject, etc. Once you learn good lighting and where to find it, your automatic camera does the rest. After this class your approach will be totally different and your pictures will sparkle. It's not rocket science and best of all, it's fun!

MAY 30 1-5PM ?Portraiture Level 1?
Register at www.LGSrecreation.org Fee: $87.00
Description: No matter what type of camera you have, film, digital or video, this class teaches you how to use natural and artificial light to get professional quality portraits of individuals and groups. This simplified system is based upon the five basic lighting patterns used in Hollywood films and professional portrait studios. There's no experience necessary with this system because we start at the very beginning and use the auto exposure mode for the whole process. You'll learn about soft lighting, hard lighting, solving common problems, and making tough lighting situations work for you. Your people pictures will look totally different after this class! Handouts are included in the fee. Bring your camera to class.
