#613 New photo course dates

We are starting to line up the late summer and fall workshops based out of our Ottawa photo studio.

Over the summer we are working on some safaris – early last summer we were planning two adventures that turned into a photo trek in the Laurentians developed with a student who wanted something different than a workshop. This year we have more fun in the works – stay tuned.

Later in the summer we are hosting one of our longest running workshops – Natural Light Portraits. Many, many, many students have learned the secrets of portraiture: optimizing available light managing your subjects to get natural smiles, flash… Mark your calendars for August 24th, 27th, 31st for better people pictures.

In the fall we have set dates for our most popular workshop, by far – Creative Fundamentals. This adventure helps new photographers and intermediate shooters create better photos by mastering the basic elements of photography – such as understanding exposure, learning to manipulate depth of field, getting a handle on theory and practice of composition. We start with the most simple building blocks and build from there. September 7, 10, 14, 2011.

Coming up later in the fall is Night Light, one of my favourite photo workshops. Why? The lights at night offer opportunities that can make your eyeballs fall out. Stay tuned for dates to be set in October. We offer this once a year only.
