Workshop Raffle Prizes
1. Daytime Long Exposure (DLE) Photography: 4 prizes/1 session — Jurgen Lobert
This is EITHER an introduction to daytime long exposure (DLE) photography OR an onsite, 3-hour small group outing to practice DLE (attendees choose between lecture or practice).
DLE photography records 1-15 minutes of time in a 2-dimensional photograph by using neutral density filters. This creates unique and intriguing images of the world that we usually freeze in momentary exposures. Letting time pass during exposure converts clouds into bands across the sky, smooths waters to a mirror finish and can make people and moving objects disappear. The resulting imagery is otherworldly and strangely beautiful.
The lecture will include hands-on set up of equipment, detailed explanations of how it works, so plan to bring your camera, lenses and ND filters. The prerequisite for the onsite practice shoot is some experience and availability, familiarization and preparation of equipment before the photo shoot, so that we do not have to spend time on getting set up. Location and date/time to be determined, but most likely along the Boston waterfront on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday late afternoon until half an hour after sunset.
2. Portrait Session: 1 prize — Anna Golitsyna
A Portrait Basics session for 1-1.5 hours, including explaining and showing a few light setups, background and posing considerations, optionally strobe setup. Can be done outside (weather permitting) and/or inside my home studio. Bringing a patient model, a family member or a friend, is recommended but not required. All photographer levels.
3. Lightroom Basic Training for Image Improvement: 1 prize — Ron Abramov
We will take about 5-10 images and learn how to improve their appearance and make the most out of each image. We will use all required tools in Lightroom development model to modify the images. The session will be 60-90 minutes and it can be done at my home. Images should be brought in on a USB drive, preferably in RAW format. At the end of the session the improved images will be loaded back on the same USB drive.
4. Wildlife Hands-on Tutorial: 2 prizes/1 session — Jim Mollenauer
There are two parts to this wildlife workshop: The first is a discussion of equipment and techniques, held before one of the club meetings or over a cup of coffee somewhere. And the second is a field shoot at a wildlife location nearby, with a review of the photos obtained. The field location will be by mutual agreement with the two winners of this item.
5. Create a Photo Web Site using WIX: 2 prizes/1 session — Beth Luchner
