Photography Workshop hosted by Cuyahoga Valley Photographic Society

A workshop on digital re-mastering and printing techniques, which is presented by Larry and Donna Ulrich. The workshop is October 20 – 23, 2011.

The event begins Thursday evening and concludes on Sunday afternoon. Our base for the 4 days is the comfortable and well-equipped Hines Hill Conference Center in the CVNP. The schedule includes field shooting sessions, classroom sessions, group discussions, critiques and demos of printing and Photoshop.

Participants can expect to learn what makes a good photograph: composition, proper exposure, choice of lenses, and how to find the right light. Topics will also include exploration of techniques for finding photos out in the field, the use of light in composition, and Photoshop as part of the creative process. Larry and Donna will help you bring light, composition and creativity together to make better photos!
