Event Details

Photography has the wonderful ability to record things quite differently than we see them, and sometimes to record things we can’t see at all. This weekend will introduce you to a wide range of creative possibilities, lovely low-tech ways of giving your photos a new look, accomplished almost entirely in-camera rather than in Photoshop. Through a series of classroom talks and demonstrations, field sessions in several scenic locations, and evaluations of your results, we will explore the many uses of blur through motion and shallow depth-of-field, photographing moonrise and moonset, night photography by moonlight and town lights, star trails, polarizing and special effects filters, pinhole photography, and other techniques as time permits. There will be time for “straight” photography, too. Our overriding goals will be to try some new techniques, get our creative juices flowing, and have some fun. It will be a full weekend, but at a leisurely pace. You should leave enlightened but not exhausted. Use any camera, digital or film, provided it allows manual control of focus, aperture, and shutter, and you are already thoroughly familiar with its operation. Accommodations included at the Clem Miller Environmental Education Center

Instructor: Bill Helsel
