Discovering Buried Treasures, Nikon Edition with Julie Adair King

Most Nikon cameras offer a seemingly endless array of menu options – and that’s in addition to a sometimes baffling collection of buttons, switches, and dials. In fact, there are so many settings that after you figure out how to adjust shutter speed, f-stop, and ISO, it’s tempting to ignore everything else. But if you do, you’re missing out on some great, special-purpose tools that can make your pictures better and your life easier. In this session, Julie Adair King, author of For Dummies guides to many Nikon cameras, explains how to take full advantage of these often overlooked gems. Find out how to use features such as Active D-Lighting to solve exposure problems, how to retouch and crop photos right in the camera, display built-in Help screens, and more.

What does it mean to be present?; what practices (photographic, spiritual …) sustain us in challenging times?  Join us for this dynamic panel discussion featuring four photographers who believe in the magical, transformational power of photography – and who wish to take your questions about the varied ways they “Trust the Process” as a path to producing extraordinary work.

 FOTOshoot 228

Environmental Portraiture on the Fly with Adam Stoltman

One of the most difficult challenges in photography is producing compelling portraits of people within their natural environment.  A photographer needs to be able to immediately size up a location, assess its visual possibilities, potential lighting issues and put their subjects at ease such that they can be placed in their environment in a manner which feels visually engaging and dynamic.....often in a compressed period of time.  In this walking tour of the Clematis Street area we will engage a variety of subjects in their own environments with the aim of producing compelling environmental portraits with a minimum of fuss.  Emphasis will be on solving compositional and practical challenges, and putting subjects at ease such that they feel natural, yet are sufficiently directed.   We will solve problems as a group and create a series of simple but elegant environmental portraits.
