Digital Photographic Artistry: Creative Composition
Oct 4 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

This workshop introduces beginners to the exciting world of photographic artistry, and broadens the knowledge and skills of more experienced photographers.  Topics will include traditional information such as photographic values, composition, working camera settings, working the scene, telling the whole story, and how they all apply in the new era of digital photography.  The instructor will also cover non-traditional aspects of photography, such as the tools of the new digital software darkroom/lightroom, workflow and editing, thinking outside the usual photographic box, iphoneography as another creative tool, and all about being an artist vs. a machine operator.  This workshop includes classroom time, as well as ample field time for students to put into practice their newfound knowledge and skills using HSV as the subject.

The workshop will also cover the basic question: Why HDR? HDR (High Dynamic Range) enhances photography skills and knowledge.  HDR allows for a greater range of exposures using digital imaging techniques.  HDR captures everything from dark shadows to bright highlights and combines them into a single image, offering tones and values beyond what can be achieved through a standard photograph.  While present-day digital cameras can only capture latitude of four to six stops of light, your eyes have a latitude of fourteen stops.  Processing through HDR allows you to capture the full magnitude of the scene without sacrificing either of the extreme tonalities.

Work on your photographic artistry with instructor Fred LeBlanc of South Hadley, MA, a professional photographer for over thirty years specializing in landscape and nautical photography, whose photographs have been published on calendars, posters, in books and in regional and national publications.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students should bring their own Digital SLR and tripod (optional)

A 4pm Guided Tour occurs before supper. Interpreters in period attire present an introduction to Shaker life as you view the Village’s premier collection of Shaker furniture and artifacts in selected buildings.

After a cider and cheese reception in the spacious kitchen of the historic Brick Dwelling (beer and wine available for purchase), dinner is served by candle light in the Believers’ Dining Room. The menu varies, and includes soup, entrees, accompaniments, and desserts selected from The Best of Shaker Cooking by Amy Bess Miller. The main course is served buffet style so you may savor an assortment of Shaker flavors.
