Join me April 18 for two digital photography workshops at the AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
Workshop I. Digital Photography Basics (Your Camera and You)
April 18 / 9:30AM – 12:30PM
Give me three hours and I’ll give you command of your digital camera. You’ll understand the dials, buttons and menus on your point-and-shoot or digital SLR camera. With humor, exuberance, plain language, and vivid examples, I’ll give you the tools to capture images of nature, family, pets, sports, artwork, sunsets, landscapes or any of your own digital aspirations.
No longer will you set the camera to “AUTO” and hope for the best. No camera is off limits, no participant too inexperienced.
Fee: $35 (includes handouts). Pre-registration is mandatory.
Workshop II. Digital Shooting Session
April 18 / 1:30-4:30PM
Registration is now closed for the second workshop. I hope to offer both of these in late spring around Montpelier.
Spend a half-day in a small group shooting indoors and outside with Bryan. This session covers standard shooting opportunities: portraits, landscapes, nature, macro, odd lighting. It works for point-and-shoot cameras or digital SLR cameras and your various lenses.
We begin indoors with a short lecture. Then we put our cameras to work together in a series of “shooting stations” – each designed to inform you on topics that include, ISO, metering, white balance, motion, depth of field, macro photography, harsh lighting, and other photographic challenges.
Before the course, I’ll contact students individually to discuss their cameras and their personal photographic predilections and aspirations.
Prerequisite: Digital Workshop I at the AVA Gallery and Art Center that morning or complete knowledge of your camera’s features and how to adjust them on the fly.
Fee: $50 per person
Class limit: 10 participants. Pre-registration is mandatory.
Bryan Pfeiffer’s photography has appeared in books, magazines and newspapers, in calendars, at galleries, and even around the world on CNN. Bryan’s workshops blend humor and exuberance for effective learning. Hundreds of mystified camera owners have become proficient photographers after Bryan’s workshops – here in Vermont and as far as Grand Canyon National Park.
By the way, you cannot necessarily capture the vivid top version of this sunrise shot in AUTO mode or without knowing how your camera reads light.
Contact Bryan with questions about these workshops.
