  • Light Painting

    400 Columbia St

    By Jurgen Lobert https://www.leyetscapes.com/ Whereas the community typically calls all of these creations “light painting”, this author distinguishes light painting from light drawing. Painting with light is like painting with color: only the light that hits the canvas is seen, but the light tool is not. It is an indirect way of adding light to a scenery to either emphasize features, brighten deep shadows or bring out textures.

  • FYI - “MAKING” PHOTOGRAPHS IN WESTPORT FIELDS AND WOODS

    Westport Woods Conservation Park 573 Adamsville Road, Westport, MA

    Here is an opportunity for some of our members to get some hints on Nature Photography, right in our own back yard. It does say that " SPACE is LIMITED ". So you must call and register by online at : please email [masked] . Also, this is a 3 day series, check the dates below. “MAKING” PHOTOGRAPHS IN WESTPORT FIELDS AND WOODS A SERIES OF THREE NATURE photography workshops in October where the emphasis is on you – not your camera – and on doing, not thinking about it, or listening to a long lecture. Workshops run from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM on Thursday, October 3rd, 10th and 17th. As Ansel Adams famously said: “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” We will practice ways to see photographs where others might not. We’ll “make” photographs by applying basic “rules” of composition to photo ops you might otherwise walk past. This is a real-world experience. You will learn (or review) a simple concept each week, then apply it in the field during an hour-and-a-half photo prowl in woods and meadow. Finally, you will share and reflect on your work online and see how others approached the same project. It’s all about seeing – seeing light, seeing forms, seeing meaningful patterns – and making an image that helps others to see what you saw. You are welcome to attend regardless of experience level, and any camera will do – phone, point and shoot, or DSLR! For more information or to register, please email [masked] or call[masked] ext. 3. Advance registration is required for this event—space is limited!

  • Capturing the Mysteries of The Ancient Ones, Ancestral Puebloans

    Capturing the Mysteries of The Ancient Ones, Ancestral Puebloans The presentation will showcase images taken over several years from the four corners area (Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico). The pictures of the villages and cities of the Ancestral Puebloans range from the five and six-stories height majestic temples to the castle-like fortifications built into the sides of cliffs, only reachable by rock climbing, ropes, and ladders. Their civilization flourished from 1500BC to 1300 AD. During this time the population in the four corners region was actually greater than it is today. Very little is known about these people, hence the mystery. We were initially drawn from curiosity to explore and document these historical sites, but Ansel Adams work inspired us to try and capture in our images the mysteries of this lost civilization. Composition, lighting, lens perspective, camera settings, and post-processing techniques will be shown that we used to transform the scenes. Simply, our thought process from capture to print.
