Full details and registration at: Photo Workshop: Being Artistic With A Digital Camera with Jim Whetstone | Central Penn Adobe User Group
About this Event: Want to feel more creative and artistic with a camera? Learn how to feel like you are painting with a brush but actually using a camera. At this workshop we will discuss the many decisions that are made before you use the camera, the capture phase – the composing and shooting, and post capture – the editing and computer work that is so very necessary for the making of an artistic digital image. Come see why photographers also paint with and capture light. In a quick one hour session we will review many of the creative tools available to a photographer. You can feel like a painter with a brush but using a camera. We will discuss creative techniques setting up a camera, many things to consider as you shoot an image and of course post capture: the editing of a file. You should be confused and excited when the evening ends.
Topic level: Intermediate
Who should attend: If you just bought a camera, attend. If you own and use a digital camera, either SLR or just a point and shoot, and this camera has menus then attend. If you have shot, created and edited for a while then attend. We hope to excite any level! What should I bring: Your camera, of course. If you have a post-production laptop, bring that along too.
