This course is a participant inter-active program consisting of three sessions:
Session #1 – will discuss shooting in late afternoon/evening natural light. Topics covered include the effect of the decreasing daylight on metering, aperture and shutter speeds, use of a tripod, aperture priority and manual metering and light direction. A brief discussion on composition with evening light will also be covered. Examples will be provided for illustration. Although this session will emphasize DSLR equipment, anyone with a camera would enjoy the course. You do not have to bring any equipment to this first session.
Session #2 – will be held out at Pike Lake Unit, Kettle Moraine State Forest (formerly known as Pike Lake State Park). Each participant, using their own equipment, will photograph any aspect of the beach area, south field (which includes wildflowers) or the north beach boardwalk area in the evening light. The beach looks west, so one might wish to shoot the setting sun over the lake, look the east into the trees or flowers, or perhaps work on creating silhouettes. Images captured during this session will then be used in Session #3.
Session #3 – Following the Pike Lake photo shoot, participants are asked to provide the instructor (via email) jpg images of the photos that they think are not quite the results they were targeting and would like next time to get it better, but not quite sure how. This might seem contrarian to the normal photography discussions, and it is. We’ll look critically your selected images and discuss ideas to try ‘next time’.
