This is the ultimate Black & White workshop! Capture the dramatic and rugged Oregon coastline in classic and timeless black and white.

Layers of clouds and headlands, frenzied ocean waves or tranquil sand beaches offer endless possibilities for composition, exposure, and amazing images. This workshop offers a short classroom orientation, photo critiques at the end, and plenty of time in-the-field. This workshop is for all levels of experience.

Summer Photography: Beaches & Sunsets

Continuing Education EdCC

July 12 – 26, 2017 (Wed) – 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

The glow of a summer sunset is something to capture forever in a beautiful photograph. But that dramatic color is so hard to get right! And it’s so easy to make your beach pictures washed-out. This summer we offer help with both subjects. You’ll learn the correct exposure to maximize color as well as techniques to control hot spots and deep shadow. Intensive classroom work on exposure, fill light, light management, HDR, post processing and silhouette will be practiced in assignments.

To Be Scheduled (Private, Semi-Private, or Class)

The Digital Darkroom gives photographers the opportunity to correct exposure, color, contrast, and other items in their photographs. In the days of film, these functions were completed for the photographer by their print lab. Modern technology changed this process, and how we work with our images. This class will go into the different software available for processing your photos, techniques to use, what to look for, and how to sort/file/store your photographic images. Lessons/classes are 1.5 to 2 hours.  All the details will be provided upon registration.
