-- Having trouble understanding the concepts of photography?
-- Images not coming out the way you expected?
-- Wish you had someone next to you to explain things?
Join me for a casual, intimate walk as we explore Milford's downtown area and work at creating consistently better images.
This workshop is to get you thinking as a photographer. The outcome being able to capture the natural beauty around us to create display worthy photographs.
We will meet at Milford Photo for introductions and a brief Q&A before heading outdoors. If you arrive late we will be heading towards the pond behind the library. There is parking in the bank lot behind the store.
I will point out potential concepts and explain possible problems you may encounter and how to overcome them. You'll then be let loose to explore that concept on your own. I'll be right there next to you if you need assistance. After a bit we'll regroup, have a short discussion and move on to the next scenario.
Group discussions will be governed by what we find, what kinds of questions are asked and how conversation progresses naturally. This is a no pressure workshop and more information than you can handle will be tossed around. You may want to bring a small notepad to record your findings.
WHAT TO BRING:
Definitely bring your camera with fresh batteries and clear memory cards. CHARGE YOUR BATTERIES! A normal to telephoto lens is suggested, a variable zoom lens is ideal. If you are not familiar with your camera bring your manual with you. You can download a digital version to your smartphone.
While a tripod is not essential bring it as we will end up by the waterfalls at the duck pond. You can bring a monopod in lieu of a tripod.
As mentioned, a notepad is nice to have also.
Prepare for the weather. Bring appropriate clothing and sun protection. Wear comfortable shoes for walking. Also bring plenty of water. A small cooler works to keep things cool in the car. We'll be out about two + hours so don't weigh yourself down too heavily.
AFTER THE WORKSHOP:
Participants will be asked to post images to the photoMENTORIS.com forum for critique and editing suggestions following the event. This will give you an opportunity to discuss issues you had, moments of inspiration, frustrations and so on. It will also allow others to propose solutions or offer alternate suggestions to overcome hurdles.
$29.95 per person. Register for this event through Meetup's RSVP or contact the store to register. Held weather permitting, rain date TBD.
