DSLR Camera Workshop Announced | Recently Published Images

UPDATE 12-23-10: The January 15 workshop is currently full, however, those interested can be added to my waiting list. Also, I will be repeating this workshop at least twice this spring, most likely Saturdays in April and May.

I’m happy to announce the addition of a second photography workshop for January 2011. On Saturday, January 15th, I will be presenting a five hour introductory program on the basics of digital photography and the DSLR camera, at Cox Arboretum MetroPark.

This is an introductory level photography workshop for anyone who has just bought their first DSLR camera. Basic settings and features for more creative control that goes beyond “auto” mode and the limits of point-n-shoot digital cameras. Classroom instruction with field demonstrations, both outside and inside, at Cox Arboretum. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

$65 per person. $20 Deposit required for reservation. Class limited to first 25 people who register. Deposit payment by check to Picture Ohio, LLC, 7164 Hartcrest Lane, Centerville, Ohio 45459, or PayPal to “james@picturesqueohio.com.” Call 937-432-6711 or email jim@ohiophoto.org to register.

Also, the most recent issue of Housetrends Magazine includes a feature spread titled “Old Fashioned Colonial Christmas.” This was an editorial assignment that was a joy to photograph. Beautiful home in Washington Township (near Dayton) that was full of decorative details that conveyed the warmth and character of Christmas past.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been revisiting what I consider my more popular nature and landscape photographs, applying a few digital edits here and there and preparing each for online presentation with digital “mat” and logo. Earlier today I made public a collection of these images as a slide show presentation using Google docs. This is the corresponding gallery page that’s included as part of my main site at OhioPhoto.org. What I like about the program I use to manage the site is the fact that I can create a self-running slide show presentation that is NOT Flash, something that’s important with more and more users accessing the web via the iPad or through systems that don’t accommodate web sites that present visuals in Flash format. Some photographers think that having a Flash-based site looks cool, to them and other photogs. I’d rather present a site that’s accessible to as many potential customers as possible.
