This is a hands-on workshop sponsored by Protectors. It will cover artistic topics such as the purposes of Nature Photography, Cell Phone controls, and developing a story around your subject. Selecting a subject suitable for your camera, types of light, using simple light modifiers, composition factors and color will be discussed. The concept of the “decisive moment” will be introduced.

NEW! Intermediate Photography Concepts-Using D-SLRs and Interchangeable lens cameras @ Willowbrook Park
Nov 19 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

(Registration Required)

This Protectors-sponsored workshop is a follow-up to the previous one, but participants can start with this class. Have a D-SLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex camera) or Mirrorless camera? Think you might want one to get those elusive creatures? Frustrated with your current results? A discussion of using more sophisticated tools such as D-SLRs and WILDLIFE D-SLRs will be introduced. Use of specialized lenses, exposure compensation and focus modes will be discussed. While a D-SLR is good to bring, individuals who are ready to advance their craft may want to attend to see what their next step could be. Presented by John Ares, who has been making photographs since age 7 and had his first photography business at age 15. Suitable for ages 6 years and up.
