Beginners Photography Class

Beginners Photography Class

Saturday the 11th of June
Brock Environmental Center - 9:00 am - 3 hours
This class is for beginning photographers who want to become better acquainted with their camera. We'll cover the exposure triangle and work with the manual settings on your DSLR, discuss composition, how time of day and weather impact your results, and look for ways to bring a unique perspective to your photos. The Brock Environmental Center is adjacent to Pleasure House Natural Area and offers many subject options - architecture, windmills, beach, water, landscape, birds, and trees. Changing light on the nature trails provides an excellent opportunity to practice the manual setting skills you'll be learning. This peaceful place is a perfect natural classroom!

Oceanfront Architecture

Oceanfront Architecture

Saturday the 18th of June
Atlantic Ave - 9am - 11am - 2 hours
Soaring beach hotels and condos rule the VB skyline. Only through their contrast with the more modest architecture of small businesses lining Atlantic Avenue do we get a full picture of the oceanfront’s character. Meet up for an exploration of the architecture, décor, signage, and creative character of the businesses along Atlantic Avenue. Refine your skills for visualizing architecture in context, maintaining perspective, spotting interesting decorative details, and manipulating camera controls to maximize focus and perspective.

Technical assistance will be available, but the goal of this class is to highlight nature in your own special way.
