NEW! Photographing Winter Contrasts–3 Thursdays in February

February 17, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Monochrome: Good for Winter Contrasts

When  winter light levels aren’t really bright, they are often just a lighter shade of gray. Why not join us in this new class that’s been designed to capitalize on the difference between the amounts of light. We’ll photograph reflections, highlights and shadows in both color and monochrome. A tripod will be your friend for these winter outings. We will have the subject of the assignment for each week in advance of our class meeting so one lens will most likely be sufficient. The weight of any camera bag seems to multiply exponentially with each degree the outside air temperature drops, so the “don’t over pack” caution will be in effect. Stash a circular polarizing filter in your camera bag. It won’t add to the weight, but could make a dramatic difference in your winter contrast images. Class will be limited to DSLR or mirrorless cameras.

Photographing Winter Contrasts, February 17 – March 3 (3 Thursdays) 9 – 12 noon
