Photo Feedback Workshop

Discover ways to improve your photos. Get feedback and  suggestion and pointers on how to improve your work. Each student will bring twelve 4x6 prints to class. Preferred pictures to bring are photos that you thought would be good when you took them but the resulting image didn't live up to what you imagined. The class will explore different approaches that could be used to improve those photos and take better images. Class is limited to twelve students.

Fall Color Photography Field Workshop

Practice working with your camera and develping your eye for composition while photographing Fall Colors and outdoor landscapes, including a creek and ravines in a hardwood forest. You will be able to work with a professional photographer in the field at the Clegg Arboretum in Lafayette. The class will then meet the following Wednesday evening to get feedback on their work. To reach the arboretum, drive north on Creasy Lane. Creasy turns east and becomes Eisenhower Road as it crosses over I-65. At the T-intersection at the bottom of the hill turn left and go up a hill. The Arboretum is just before the top of the hill with the parking lot on your right, where the class will meet. Be sure to bring enough memory cards, a tripod if you have one, and lots of batteries, and your camera manual.
