 Lights of the Season

December Workshop


Two-Session Photo Workshop

Lights of the Season: Inside/Outside

Fridays 7:00 - 8:30  12/13 and 12/20

It's dark outside, but we are thinking "Light."  This time of year brings  so many opportunities to appreciate and capture the very special and festive lights of the season, from Chanukah menorahs to streets festooned in holiday lights  This workshop will offer tips on the best ways to photograph these various manifestations of light. Managing exposure, white balance, point of focus and shutter speed and even introducing the trusty tripod, will bring these holiday pictures to life.  First session for discussion and second session to share your work from the intervening week.
