This session will meet:
4 Consecutive Wednesday evenings, 6-8 pm
This workshop takes a unique approach to the world of photography introducing beginner and intermediate level photographers to the essential techniques of exposure and composition as well as photographic documentation through the use of presentations, weekly photo assignments, and one on one guidance. Students photograph a variety of subjects in and around the museum, including Portraiture, Landscapes and Architecture. This class is for people of all ages with little or no experience in photography, or for those seeking to renew their knowledge on the basics.
You will be instructed on:
– Fine Art Photography
– Camera & Lens
– Automatic vs Manual Shooting Modes
– Color Temperature (White Balance
– Focus and Depth of Field
– Light and Exposure
– Freezing Action vs Creating Movement
– Composition, Content and Photographic Storytelling
– Basic Photo Editing
– Online Sharing
Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites for the workshop; however, since all camera models have different control layouts, students are expected to know how to find and adjust three exposure settings in their camera: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. While a DSLR camera is preferred, any digital camera capable of manual control of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO will work. Students with cameras that have no way to control these three exposure settings (i.e.: point-and-shoot cameras) will not get the full benefit of the workshop. A tripod is also strongly recommended.

Pierre and Cathy Dutertre
Pierre and Cathy Dutertre have been making photographs together for well over ten years as a husband and wife duo, from commercial projects and fine art ventures that reflect their varied individual and complex pasts.
They project their unique psyches with expressive and reflective imagery of the world and their presence within it, seeking answers to metaphysical questionings through a symbiotic creative collaboration.
Their images reflect a constant quest for spiritual, existential and philosophical pondering, a somber search at times for the essence of life and the world around them.
