Saturday, Sept 14th • 11am-7pm
Hunt’s Photo, S. Portland & Portland Head Light
Featuring long-exposure photography using on-camera filters
Recommended prerequisite: Working knowledge of your camera
We also recommend having some of the knowledge from our Beginner Photography class
All Skill Levels Welcome
Instructor: Rick Berk and guest instructor
Class Size: Limited to 12 attendees
In the age of film photography, filters were used to great effect. Because darkrooms were less accessible for editing (than editing in the digital age), filters were used to “get it right in camera”. Despite all the editing programs available today, it is still best to “get it right in camera”, and certain filters still produce vastly superior effects that cannot be achieved by post-processing alone.
Join Hunt’s Photo Educator Rick Berk for a hands-on photography workshop designed to help attendees create better images by utilizing long-exposure. We will start with a classroom session explaining the different filter types and their uses, as well as examples of when and why to use them. Circular Polarizers, Neutral Density Filters, and ND Graduated Filters will all be covered. At about 2pm we will break and reconvene at Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth at 3:30pm to put into practice the filters and techniques. We will conclude the walk around 7pm.
We will have some Benro Neutral Density and Circular Polarizing filters on-hand for attendees to use in order to test the techniques discussed in the class. If attendees are interested in purchasing filters to use during the event, we will be offering a discount on them the day of the workshop.
If you are attending this walk, we will send out more specific instructions to you a few days prior to the walk. However, be advised we will be meeting at Hunt’s Photo, South Portland at the time listed. We will be traveling separately to Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth. We will not need to return to South Portland and will conclude the workshop around 7pm in Cape Elizabeth. Please note: Some slight details above can be subject to change. This email will detail any of those minor changes.
