Akron Symphony Orchestra / NPS anniversary concert and photo montage, submission deadline extended to August 17, 2016

The National Park Service is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016. In recognition of the Centennial, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, in partnership with Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, has planned several signature events developed to honor this milestone and engage the community in and around northeast Ohio in celebrating our local park.

One of the exciting programs we are working on is a collaboration with Akron Symphony Orchestra. On Friday, November 4, the audience at E.J. Thomas Hall in Akron will listen to the talented musicians of the Akron Symphony Orchestra while experiencing a visual montage of images from Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Designed to complement the orchestral pieces being performed, the visual component will be choreographed by Nicholas Bardonnay, Artistic Director and CEO of Westwater Arts, using images from Cuyahoga Valley National Park that we provide to him. Samples of Westwater Arts productions can be found on their website,

We are inviting local photographers to share their talents and love of Cuyahoga Valley National Park by sharing their images. Details are provided in the announcement and photo release.

Note that the submission deadline has been extended to August 17, 2016.


Landscape and Lightroom: Capture and Process with Tim Cooper ,  Oct 20 – 23, 2016

Join the Cuyahoga Valley Photo Society for an exciting workshop with professional photographer, Tim Cooper, to improve both your photographic technique and software skills. With a combination of field and classroom sessions, Tim will guide you through the important concepts for creating meaningful landscape photographs - from capturing them in the field to processing them in Adobe Lightroom.

Topics include understanding white balance, depth of field for landscapes, camera position and its effect on composition, the right light, shooting for HDR photography, and proper use of a polarizing filter. Tim will also cover an in-depth study of Lightroom’s Library and Develop modules to streamline your import process, use powerful development techniques and localized adjustments, develop HDR and Panorama images, and fine-tune your images to reflect your vision. Tim’s dynamic and easy to follow teaching style will improve your skills and confidence in capturing and processing beautiful landscape photography from start to finish!
