I am happy to present a fall photography workshop amongst the beautiful gardens of Cox Arboretum MetroPark, near Dayton Ohio. This will be a one-day program that includes both classroom and field instruction, with subjects that include close-up nature, landscapes and outdoor portraits. Classroom instruction will be presented in the Mead Theater Room at Cox Arboretum, interspersed with outings to the gardens for demonstrations and exercises in composition, camera settings, lighting and more.
Toward the end of the workshop I will have time for students to share select images for class and instructor critiques, always conducted in a way to positively reinforce creative ability, technical skill and artistic vision.
I love photography but perhaps I love teaching photography even more. Come share in my passion for both the art and craft of photography. Late September at Cox Arboretum provides exquisite lighting conditions and wonderful natural subjects to photograph, including a tall grass prairie in its late summer/early fall splendor.
There will be models on hand for my field instruction on outdoor portraits, using both natural light and detached flash. Students will learn the difference between simple snapshots and professional portraits with my best tips on posing, angles, light direction and depth of field.
Classroom instruction will feature managing and editing image files using Adobe Lightroom and the Nik plug-in software.
This workshop is primarily geared toward those just starting out with their first DSLR camera, however, I often have advanced photographers attend my introductory workshops because there is always an opportunity to learn and share in a group instruction setting. A DSLR camera is not required but strongly recommended. Students are encouraged to bring all of their equipment.
The cost is $89 per person which includes a catered box lunch from Panera Bread. The workshop will begin at 8:30 AM and conclude by 5:00 PM. There is a $20 deposit required to reserve a seat. I try to keep my workshops limited to the first 20 people who register so as to ensure quality of personal instruction. Deposit payments can be made by check to: Picture Ohio LLC 2581 Trebein Rd. Xenia OH 45385 or via PayPal to “[email protected]”
Come enjoy a beautiful day of fun and learning and see why it is that I still have as much passion and enthusiasm for the camera and light as I did when I first got started many years ago. It will be a photographic experience you will always remember, and one which will make a big difference with what you can accomplish with your camera.
