OBOA: Photography Workshop

Landscape photographers oftentimes use their environment as a basis for creating images that don’t simply document the environment but also reflect the photographer’s personal vision.   

In this workshop we will look at things such as light, composition, depth of field, image processing and other photographic basics that will allow you to move beyond a simple literal representation ofthe environment and instead create fine art photographs that represent your vision of the world. 

Facilitated by Ronen Grunberg, APL Camera Club.

September 29th, 1:30pm to 3:30pm
