Photography



Perfect Pictures Every Time for Beginners

Carl Heilman II

Understanding photography basics is the key to taking control of your camera, and knowing you got the shot when you were taking it. If you would like to take your skill level from shooting in Auto to having full control over your camera, this intensive class is for you! A step by step PowerPoint presentation helps teach the basic principles of photography including: camera options and set-up, peripheral equipment, image exposure and histograms, and will touch on shooting for HDR, and working with motion, depth of field, and composition. The class is paced to allow time for questions and interaction, with about half of the day in the classroom experimenting with the cameras, and the other half spent in the field, practicing camera techniques and shooting options. A comprehensive handout will include all the major points covered in the presentation. While the class instruction is mostly landscape based, these techniques and principles can be applied to all photographic situations.

Summer Landscapes, Fireworks and the Full Moon Photography Workshop

Carl Heilman II

Thursday nights during the summer months offer fun opportunities to photograph fireworks exploding above beautiful Lake George, plus sunset colors, star filled skies, and photographing lights around the village or in nearby towns. In addition, the August 10th tour is just after full moon, offering additional opportunities during this particular tour to photograph the moon rising over the lake, and night scenes under the moonlight. The class will start at 5:00 pm with a very brief introduction and discussion, with the rest of the evening in the field experimenting with various photo techniques at nearby lakes and waterways. This nature photography tour is designed for those who are already comfortable with camera basics such as the relationship between aperture, shutter, and ISO settings. A great class for those who wish to receive mentoring while in the field.
