#816 Ottawa’s Macro Photography Class

In June we ran the Macro Photography Class with Louise Tanguay. The course filled quickly and people loved it.

This is Louise’s first class with us and she brings with her vast teaching and photo expertise. Our students were lucky to learn from Louise:

I loved this course and Louise is a great teacher.

The challenges made me experiment with angles I never would have explored otherwise. This workshop was great because it pushed me out of my comfort zone. It was so helpful !

I found Louise a wonderful ”teacher” if I can call her like that. The way she made the presentations and explanation had a major impact in my photography.

I thank you both for the enthusiasm you gave me! I think I am becoming a better photographer. How about that!!!

The challenges forced me to explore new techniques and aspects of photography… it opened many new doors for me.

I enjoyed this workshop tremendously and I learned so much. Thank you.

Learned lots. Thank you very much… and had fun too…

…great course and Louise was so awesome and I got to learn a lot.

Stay tuned for more courses!

#815 Photo Tips and Upcoming Photography Classes

We’ve started posting random tips on Facebook and Twitter.

Some recent tips:

Photo Tip #322 – Skip “8 frames per sec” in favour of one well timed click. With practice you’ll have better success (and fewer oopses!)

Photo Tip #27 – For better photos keep your subject AWAY from the middle of the picture!

Photo Tip #718 – Fill the frame with fun – Get close to your subject. Now get CLOSER!

#814 Reminder – “Nuit Noire” Art Exhibition – Vernissage Thursday

While we’d LOVE you to come visit us at Nuit Noire’s Vernissage this Thursday at the Cube Gallery we understand that some of you just may not be able to make it. Don, Cube’s main brains, was kind enough to show a 360 preview of the show.

I’ll be there Thursday night with other fine artists like Becky Mason, Reid McLachlan.

Night shooting is one of my favourite times to shoot. We even have a course dedicated to night time photography – NightLight – stay tuned for dates in October 2012.

Read last year’s review in the Xpress.

Visit the Cube’s Nuit Noire page (scroll down) for the night time events related to this show.

Hope to see you there…

Cube Gallery; 1285 Wellington W, Ottawa, Ontario.

In June we pitched the ideas of self portraits with tips, ideas and inspiration to help members push their limits, overcome shyness and develop ideas to  make their photos smile. Self portrait was defined as a photo of you or about you. We sent out the critique session video last week. I was impressed and so were members. A few member photo’s self portraits are attached.

What do you think?!
