Coasting with Your Camera

Coasting with Your Camera
with Carolina Lopez-Ruiz
Saturday, June 16, 10am-5pm
$100, lunch included

Come explore the coast of Lake Michigan and the woods of Ox-Bow with your digital camera! This workshop aims to teach you about lighting, composition, content and flexibility. Gain tricks and tips to build and foster creativity within your body of work. We will also cover general manual settings such as shutter speed, depth of field and focus.  Bring any type of digital camera, yes, even your phone! As a group, we will explore the space around Ox-Bow, using our equipment to capture landscapes and portraits (or selfies). We will collaborate and share resources to help fulfill our individual visions. Learn how to use what you have around you to make your photos look the best they can. Practice with everyday materials to create your own reflectors, tri-pods, and diffusers. Let’s explore and gain new appreciation for the digital photography world!
