Ohio Woodland Stewards Capturing Nature's Wonders Workshop

Oct 17, 2015, 9:00am - 9:00pm
Spend a fun and exciting day learning how to take your outdoor photography to the next level.  You'll receive "real time" instruction in the field, as well as intensive classroom preparation.  In the classroom sessions, you will learn the simple steps that make the difference between ordinary snapshots and extraordinary photos.  Minutes later you will be practicing those steps.
To get the most out of the workshop you will need a camera that allows you to manually control apertures, shutter speeds, and ISO settings. A lens that has manual focus is also a plus. Any recent model DLSR (digital single lens reflex) or ILC (interchangeable lens compact), will work.  If you have a full featured point and shoot camera that has the four basic PASM modes (Program, Aperture priority, Shutter priority and Manual) and makes them easy to use, you will do just fine.  
Bring to the workshop:
digital camera and the manual
tripod if you have one
notebook and pen for notes
small flashlight or headlamp for the field trip
Recommeded companion book for the workshop: Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies (will also be for sale for $25 at the workshop)
Registration deadline: Oct. 9
