Introduction to Nikon Capture NX 2 - $60 + hst (limited to 8 people)
optimal settings (colour space, etc.), noise reduction, colour cast reduction, selective sharpening, control points, straightening, etc.
Nature Photography Level I - $200 + hst (limited to 8 people)
Three course dates: (May 9, 12, & 16) (June 7, 9 & 11). Structure is a classroom powerpoint presentation (Day 1), followed by a Saturday morning outing (Day 2), then concluding with an evening class (Day 3) including an image review from the outing. This course will also build on a Level II and III available in the future. The workshop includes camera setup, composition, background elements, ISO, aperture, and shutter speed relationships. Requirements are to have a basic working knowledge of their camera settings – how to change shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. To learn basics of composition any camera is useful (point & shoot, dslr (digital single lens reflex) and film welcomed). The operator makes the difference! Tripod and a mid range lens (approx. 17-35 and/or 24-70mm) are required. Equipment recommendations are also made based on solving problems on the field and what would be useful for future workshops (not buying the biggest and best camera but practical supplies to suit the photographers needs). Please bring your camera and lens manual and appropriate rain gear for the Saturday outing (rain or shine).
