Upcoming Field Trips

Stay-at-Home Monthly Field Trips (till the pandemic is over)

Our first Stay at Home field trip was quite a success! Thank you to everyone who participated.

Stay-at-Home Field Trip No.2 for May.  Since we still are not able to gather in larger groups, we will do a 2nd Stay at Home field trip during the month of May. The theme for this field trip will be Mirror, Mirror. Some of us may feel safe enough to venture out more and farther away from our home. So the photos can be taken anywhere you feel comfortable continuing to practice our social distancing – inside or outside. A mirror must be at least partially visible in the photo along with its reflection. You must use a mirror of some kind – not a reflection from any other medium. The photos can be taken all through the month of May.

Stay-at-Home Field Trip No.3  for June.  ‘Here we are for one more ‘stay at home’ field trip. Thank you to everyone who has been participating. Since we still are not able to gather in larger groups, we will do a 3rd Stay at Home field trip during the month of June. The theme for this field trip will be Scavenger Hunt.  Please see the Activities Page for more information.

Upcoming Workshops

August 8 & 15 - ADOBE PHOTOSHOP CC (BASICS)

This workshop will be limited to only 6 participants and will be done online using Zoom.  The program has also been modified to cover more detail in PhotoShop and will be done on two successive Saturdays.  The first class (in May) was a great success. 

This workshop will provide an introduction to Photoshop (overall view and user interface), followed by basic tasks (opening files, arranging photos, navigating, making selections, working with layers and masks), and culminating in a class project to create a composite image using these skills.

Check the CALENDAR for more details, or use the CONTACT link to request more information.

Light Painting Workshop

Details for this very fun workshop are forthcoming.
