WOW! - HDR Photography
Learn how to capture and process High Dynamic Range (HDR) images. HDR is a technique used to create images that show more details in both the shadows and highlight areas of an image. Have you ever taken a picture and the foreground looks great, but the skies were over exposed? Have you ever taken an images where you can’t see the details in the dark shadows? Our own eyes have the ability to see more dynamic range than our cameras are able to capture. With HDR photography you can overcome this problem making your images clearer and more vibrant. We will teach you how to capture these types of images as well as demonstrate several software packages that are used to process the HDR images. In this six session class we will have two field trips, Springton Manor Farm in Glenmore and Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site in Elverson on Saturday afternoons.

WOW! – The Magnificent World of Macro Photography
Macro photography is one of the few types of photography that anyone can do just about anywhere and at just about any time and it’s a lot of fun! All around us are tiny objects just waiting be to be photographed and with the right equipment and technique, you’ll learn how to capture the beauty of these tiny subjects.
While expensive macro lenses are nice, they are not necessary. You will learn about inexpensive equipment to get you close, sometimes even closer than those expensive macro lenses. We will also teach you what camera settings work best (aperture, shutter speed and ISO), best compositional practices, how to light tiny objects, focus stacking for maximum sharpness and much, much more…
