Winter Nature Photography

(Course number - C636W20)

 

Winter in Minnesota is a great time to get out with your camera.  The air is crisp and clear, and we can access areas that are normally inaccessible.  The low sun angle allows us to shoot all day.  Winter can also be a challenge.  Cameras get confused by the white snow.  

During this workshop you will learn exposure techniques, composition, finding and accessing locations, and protecting yourself and your gear.

Focus on Lightroom

(Course number - C637W20)

 

In this workshop, we will cover library organization and photo editing using Adobe Lightroom Classic.  

By learning the tools provided by the develop module, students will learn how to pull out detail, manage contrast, sharpen, and clean up their photos.  We will also discuss the advantages of capturing photos in the camera's raw format.

Shooting after Dark: Night Photos & Light Painting

(Course number - D638W20)

 

After the sun goes down, a whole new world of photography becomes available.

During the workshop students will learn how to properly expose night photos, understand ambient light, capture stars and star trails, and light up objects using standard flashlights.

Capturing Captivating Landscapes

(Course number - D639W20)

 

Landscape photography is our attempt to capture a place in time.  We want to bring out the feelings and emotions that we experienced at the moment the photo was taken.  The challenge is that it is hard to capture emotion in a photo.  Add to this, the complexity of adding depth to a medium that is two dimensional.

In this workshop, you will discover techniques to bring out the most in your landscape image.  We will cover everything from composition, to story telling.  Plus you will get a chance to put the concepts covered in the workshop to use as we head out to a location to capture some landscape images.

Looking at the Details: Close-up and Macro Photography

(Course number - D640W20)

 

Photographing objects up close opens up a whole new world.  We begin to see details that we never knew were there.

In this workshop, we will have a mix of lecture and hands-on activities to demonstrate the tools and techniques needed to get up close to subjects.  We will also cover some of the challenges, and ways to overcome them.
