New Photography Classes

Now that hockey season is over and I finally have a minute to breathe, it's time to start up our photography classes again. This time around we are adding a new concept with the class concluding on our new Chesler Photography Workshops group on Facebook, by participants of the class sharing their photos taken that day. We will also post tips, how to's, contests and giveaways on the page, as well as information on all of our upcoming classes. Here is the short list of upcoming classes for this Spring.

Photo 101 - DSLR Basics  April 8, 2014 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  $25.
Get the most of your DSLR (or advanced Point and Shoot that has manual settings). Learn what each button does and when you'd want to use them.  You will get an understanding of exposure and how each camera setting effects the final outcome.

The Bird Song Trail  April 26, 9:00-11:00 a.m.  $25.
We will meet at the parking lot to the Birdsong Trail at Mendon Ponds Park to explore the trail and adjacent fields for the amazing variety of birds returning to the area from a long cold winter. A DSLR with a 200mm+ lens is recommended, as well as a tripod.

Landscapes  May 4, 9:00-11:00 a.m. $25.
This class will focus on the beautiful scenery of the rural areas surrounding Canandaigua. We will look for fields of wildflowers set among the rolling hills. A wide angle lens is recommended for this class, however pack your telephotos and macro lenses as well.

Urban HDR  May 14, 6:00-8:00 p.m.  $25.
If you've never experimented with High Dynamic Range images, this is a great starter class. We'll explore some of the texture filled alleys of downtown Canandaigua creating bracketed exposures of each scene to merge in the computer later. The final image has a tonal range far greater than a traditional photo resulting in a surreal fantasy look.
