The following are single photography workshops on location, around a single theme. The class will meet for an instructional presentation first then go on the road for practice in the field. Register for individual workshops with the South County Art Association:

Landscape Photography/Full Moon - June 20 2016 6-9 PM Point Judith Lighthouse. $50 members/$75 non-members. In this mini-workshop, we will explore camera settings to best capture moving water, late day light and composition. Topics include creative shutter speed, proper exposure and moonrise techniques. With any luck, the cloud cover will be minimal, and the full moon will rise on cue!

Portrait Photography Thursday July 14, 8-11 AM Westerly Wilcox Park $50 members/$75 non-members. We will meet at the park and use the beautiful available morning light for our lighting source. You will learn the use of reflectors, fill flash and the best camera settings to achieve a perfect portrait. You are encouraged to bring your favorite model!

Interior and Architectural Photography Thursday July 21 5-8 PM First Unitarian Church, Providence $50 members/$75 non-members. The College Hill area of Providence is full of architectural splendor, but gaining access to interiors is not always possible. In this mini-workshop, we will photograph inside the beautiful First Unitarian Church on Benefit Street. We will work with ambient lighting, dynamic range, depth of field and capturing architectural detail.

Low Light Photography Thursday August 11 Fort Adams Newport 3 - 6 PM $75 members/$100 non-members. Don't miss this great opportunity to go behind the scenes in this historic fortress. Explore the officer's quarters, tunnels and see great views of Narragansett Bay from the ramparts. Students in this hard-hat workshop will practice low light photography techniques, long exposures and interpreting interior spaces in their images.
