Join us for an all day CAP seminar by David DesRochers entitled Creating Unique Images of Our Natural World. This program will provide education, information, and inspiration for all levels of photographer.

Topics to be presented include:

  • The Starting Line: Basics of Photography, including equipment and photographic concepts such as shutter speed, f/stops, exposure, depth of field – and how all can be used to take good photographs and achieve different effects. Although the focus will be on nature photography, these same principles will be applied to other kinds of photography as well.
  • Creating Photos with Impact. Most people take snapshots. Photographers create works of art. Elements of composition will be explored, allowing its use to create compelling photographs. Subjects will include portraits, street and travel, architecture and nature.
  • Wild about Wildlife. David’s techniques used to photograph birds and animals in the field will be explored. Subjects will include light (natural and flash), composition and moment. Ethics, animal/bird behavior and popular wildlife destinations will also be covered.
  • Creative Landscapes: David will share his techniques for finding and capturing unique mages of the endless natural art our planet has to offer. Subjects include planning, composition, capture and post processing. Techniques used to create panoramas, blurs and “art in water” images will also be covered.
