Photography with Kathy Thompson

What: Photography for Scrapbookers

When: Sunday, January 27, 2008
Meenans Cove Beach House 9-12; 1-4

Part A – Morning session 9AM – 12PM $50 pp

In this session we will start with the basics and work our way up. We will touch on the parts of the camera, types of cameras, types of lenses and which ones you need to get the shots you want, your camera modes (image and creative), and our focus will be on light and that all important triangle: Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO – how they work together and how you can capture the shots you want.
You will be taking your camera off of automatic and working in the creative modes!
We’ll talk about good photo composition, framing your shots, portable, inexpensive backdrops, white balance and we will close with the digital workflow – what to do with all those pictures you’ve taken, including both short and long term storage.
The aim of the morning session is for you to leave better informed, more confident as a photographer and excited about taking pictures!

Part B – Afternoon Session 1PM – 4PM $50pp or $90pp for both sessions

This session is going to be about Adobe Photoshop Elements! Although you may not do a lot of post processing with your images now, the more into photography you get, the more you will come to realize that post processing, even just a little bit, can make a great photograph exceptional and a good photograph great!
We will learn how to get a true black and white conversion (not just grayscale! – a personal pet peeve), we will make our colours pop, sharpen up our photos a bit, we will learn how to “vignette” our photos which is so popular right now (it’s the ‘burned edges’ look) and just for fun we will learn how to use some basic digital elements with our photos – frames, distressed edges, etc.

If time allows we will do a Q&A at the end of the day discussing anything and everything and possibly a bit more advanced photography.
Obviously a laptop with Adobe Photoshop Elements is a must for this session; 2 people can share a laptop no problem.

Both sessions include a presentation on CD and a handout for you to take home.
