- What's This?
Give me four hours and I’ll give you the secrets to your digital camera and the skills to take vivid photos. You’ll understand the dials, buttons and menus on your point-and-shoot or SLR camera. No longer will you set your dial to “AUTO” and hope for the best. With plain language and practical examples, I’ve developed this workshop to help any photographer capture images of nature, family, pets, sports, artwork, sunsets, landscapes or any of their own creative aspirations.
From the coast of Maine to Grand Canyon National Park, I’ve offered this seminar to artists, botanists, college students, birdwatchers, writers, teachers and hundreds of other people who want to make photography a bigger part of their world — and our world.
Find the workshop only twice this spring:
- April 2 at the AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, from 10AM to 2:30PM — Space is limited in this session and pre-registration through AVA is mandatory.
- April 9 at the Birds of Vermont Museum in Huntington, Vermont, from 9AM to 1PM — This is a fundraiser for the museum. We’re expecting a full house, so register to save your spot by calling 802.434.2167 or by sending an email.
For each workshop, you’ll pack a lunch and charge up your camera battery. We’ll begin with a “refresher” on the fundamentals of photography (shutter speed, aperture, motion, depth of field). Then we’ll launch into other essentials, not the least of which are light, action and creativity. We’ll cover metering, focusing, ISO, color balance, macro photography and taking control of your camera’s flash setting. In this workshop, no camera is off-limits, no photo aspiration too high.
ABOUT BRYAN PFEIFFER THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Bryan’s photography has appeared in books, magazines and newspapers, in calendars, at galleries, and even around the world on CNN. His workshops blend humor and exuberance for effective learning.
Although he is most at home in a bog or on a mountain, Bryan is a teacher at heart.
