Event description

Description

This class will help improve your photographic skill, execute your artistic vision and turn documenting into storytelling. We will start out in the classroom with Aaron Norberg, Sigma Technical Representative, learning how to make better images whether for publication or personal use. We will cover lens selection, composition and how to utilize depth of field and shutter speed to create interesting and engaging imagery while abroad or near home.

Then Aaron will focus on shooting small: Macro Photography. We will cover tips and techniques for great macro images, as well as the basics of how to choose a macro lens, the proper accessories and the right environment for macro photography.

Following classroom instruction, we will all meet at St Edwards State Park about 2.5 miles from the store. Event administrators will lead a guided photo walk through Saint Edward State Park and aid attendees in capturing travel-centric and macro images. Attendees will be free to follow the group or take off on their own at their discretion. Event Administrators will have a selection of lenses for swapping out should anyone want to try something different.

Group will then meet back at Kenmore Camera at 3:30pm for gear check-in.
