Event description

Description

Here's your chance to take your photography to the next level. Why sit in an indoor classroom when the wide-open prairie has so much more texture to offer. In this outdoor Field Class* event, you'll learn how to make great photographs using simple techniques. We'll start with the basics of 'Know thy camera.' You don't have to know every bell and whistle nor be intimidated by the tech factor. I shoot for National Geographic, and I still don't know many of my camera's custom menu settings. What I do know is how to get my camera to do what I want it to when I want it to, and that's critical.

A class as much about how to find and approach different subjects as about camera settings. You’ll soon realize that the most important part of making pictures -- is thinking. What is it you want your image to say? We’ll explore ways to think about various genres and cover techniques for making effective imagery. Like playing the piano, photography is all about practice, practice, practice. There is no substitute for making lots of pictures, and few other things are as much fun.

We'll venture nearby to where once grand structures stood tall and proud, where these abandoned structures now lie in various decaying states of ruin. It is here where you'll learn to take hauntingly beautiful photographs of hidden locales. Discover simple tricks... Break old habits and learn about the buttons on your camera, including which ones you’ll never need to use. Connect with local photographers. By day's end, you'll have a compelling collection of stunning and melancholy photographs, a storied collection that helps us hear these abandoned places speak.

So where should you start and what should you do? The fact that you're reading this right now is your key to making the photos you've always hoped for. So congratulations. It's time to register.
