Photo Ops Sessions

(open to the public)

The change to Saturday hands-on sessions has worked well. Thus, the format will remain the same for the upcoming season. The two hands-on sessions will run with a new format from 10:00AM to 3 PM. This will allow for more time to photograph this year.

Each Saturday session will provide a variety of photo opportunities for you to take advantge of. These can include blacklight, abstracts, painting with light, and still life. A modest amount of self-starting instruction on concept, subject matter, equipment, and composition will be provided with hopes that you will then be able to take what you have learned and apply it to your own setups at home.

For the Photo Ops Day on April 1, we will have still life, flowers, pets and textures. As we all deal with AI in photos you will need to create your own textures for competitions. So come and start your library with various textures from pasta,sand and rice to lace canvas and metal. 

Try your hand and sharpen your skills at arranging tabletop creations. Multiple setups of various subject matter and techniques will be available. For some setups, tripod is recommended. Most setups are constant light. A view use electronic flash using Pocket Wizards. If using your camera in manual mode, help is available for flash or manual mode. In addition to those setups noted above, setups may include glassware, water drops, flowers, macro, creative, frozen flora, shooting thru a sphere and other subject matter such dark light or painting with light. A tripod and short telephoto lens or macro are all that is needed. A remote release might be helpful.

Come down and join us for a fun, hands-on photo shoot. Meet other photo club members on a smaller scale and hopefully get some new images for competition. If you would like to get more information, please email Barbara Rozavsky at barbphoto@mac.com
