Creating Expressive Nature Photographs with Brenda Tharp,  Apr 28 – May 1, 2016

CVPS is pleased to host an inspiring and educational workshop by professional photographer and popular workshop instructor, Brenda Tharp, to improve your ability to create images that celebrate nature in all its forms, and to express your own vision through the process of making the photograph.

Topics covered throughout the workshop include effective use of natural light, creating visual flow in your images, emphasizing nature’s design, composing dynamic landscapes, capturing gesture/moment, low-light exposures, macro photography, creating abstracts, and in-camera im-pressionistic techniques. Brenda’s visual presentation will ignite your creativity and provide useful techniques, tips and concepts you can apply in the field to strengthen your images.

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!
