Zen Photography Workshops is presenting a Basic Photography Workshop + Photo Walk on March 24TH, 2013 | 1 to 3 PM
The Northward, or Vernal (Spring) Equinox is approaching – you can see it in the sweet light that lingers longer each day, edging us closer, begging us to hang on, telling us that warmth and more light is coming. The Spring Equinox takes place on March 20, 2013 at 11:02 AM. If you don’t know, the Equinox denotes a time when the “tilt of the Earth’s axis is neither inclined away or towards the Sun, with the center of the Sun being at the same plane as the Earth’s Celestial Equator, moving north and giving us a day and night of near equal length.” (Encyclopedia Britannica)
The Vernal Equinox lies in the constellation Pisces (between Pisces and Aquarius, actually), and some of the positive qualities of the sign of Pisces are compassion and imaginative – but, what on earth does all this equinox talk have to do with photography?
Think of it…what a great time to learn more about photography/photographing, when you will be open to the imaginative energies of the season, be able to take advantage of the afternoon light that will be available to us and have a compassionate instructor (Joanne Bartone) available to you. It should prove to be a wonderful alignment for us.
CLICK HERE for details + to reserve your space – seating is limited + there is a discount for those who sign up early: “Rising Sun.” Christine Goodis, Master stylist and owner of Salon Christine is generously hosting the workshop at her salon – a warm and relaxed atmosphere not far from our photo walk location.
This will be an opportunity to understand how to align your mind, eye and heart with the basic technical + creative components of DSLR photography.
At the end of this workshop, you will understand:
- DSLR Cameras, ISO, Aperture + Shutter Speed: the “Exposure Triangle.”
- How to achieve consistent exposures easily.
- What those DSLR camera dials are really meant to do for you.
- How to use M, Av and Tv to your advantage.
- How best to apply principles of composition.
- How different lenses + auto-focus works.
- Your camera adjustments for different “natural” light settings + when + how to add flash.
Bring your enthusiasm, questions, camera, lenses and compact flash cards. A photo walk is included with this workshop so you can immediately apply the information presented.
