Victor goes through all of the gear you’ll need to get started, and then demonstrates a series of portrait lighting techniques, that you can start using right away to get amazing results. You’re sure to learn a lot and have fun along the way as Victor shares tips and techniques that are easy to replicate with inexpensive equipment and a few props. Fee: $35 ($31.50 members)

Bokeh is defined as “the effect of a soft out-of-focus background that you get when shooting a subject, using a fast lens, at the widest aperture, such as f/2.8 or wider.” Simply put, bokeh is the pleasing or aesthetic quality of out-of-focus blur in a photograph. You will come away with a better understanding of what bokeh is and how to apply it to your photography. Fee: $35 ($31.50 members)

Star Trail Photography.
Saturday, December 15
One of the super powers a camera instills is the ability to bend time — to capture microseconds, or to show hours in a single frame. Combine this power with near total darkness and a photographer can show the very motion of the heavens. With the advent of digital photography, star trail photography has become accessible to just about anyone with a modern DSLR or mirrorless camera. Join us for a workshop that will instruct you on the ins and outs of making star trails using simple equipment — a camera with manual mode, a lens, a tripod and a simple shutter release. Fee: $35 ($31.50 members)

Instructor: Victor Watson of Schertz Photography
