Fall in Ohio | Returning to Cox Arboretum

Join me as I guide and teach the art and craft of nature photography in one of my favorite locations in Ohio – Cox Arboretum MetroPark, just south of Dayton. Some of the reasons I love teaching at Cox include the beautiful and comfortable theater-style classroom and the variety of outdoor subjects to work with when teaching camera settings, lighting and composition. This will be a great opportunity to finally master the exposure settings on that new DSLR camera or pick-up new tips on working with directional lighting and digital editing. This workshop is open to all levels of skill and experience.

The best part about my workshops is that they are fun ! I am there to teach and help all learn and gain in our shared passion for photography. I encourage open discussion and sharing of tips and information amongst the students. The only photography I do on my own when teaching these programs is when I am demonstrating how I “find” a scene, work with the light and compose the capture. My role is to teach and encourage and honestly I have just as much fun with presenting these workshops as I do when I am actually photographing.

During this workshop I will cover the basics of exposure, the most important settings on the DSLR camera (if you have a point-n-shoot, that’s fine too), lenses, lighting, composition and basic digital file editing/workflow. Toward the end of the day I always like to allow for some time for students to share a few images for group/instructor critiques based strictly on positive reinforcement. All of us are constantly learning and growing in photography, whether just starting out or with many years of experience. The most important thing to remember is to shoot and have fun!

This is a full-day workshop starting at 8AM and finishing around 5PM. The $89 fee per person includes instruction, handout materials and box lunch from Panera Bread. I ask for a $20 deposit to register and reserve a seat for the program. The deposit can be paid by check to: Picture Ohio LLC  2581 Trebein Rd. Xenia OH  45385 or via PayPal to “jim@ohiophoto.org.”

For those looking for more of an in-depth workshop experience please consider my weekend workshop I will be presenting on October 25-27 2013 at The Inn at Cedar Falls in Hocking Hills.
