Every year in September I organize a workshop for the Photo Guild called Digital Photography Basics. The hot topic this year is HD Video and most new dSLR cameras will feature HD video. The last episode of “House” this spring was shot using a Canon 5D MkII dSLR. This offers new creative opportunities for photographers and new skills to learn.

We will be featuring a presentations in the morning on High Definition Video as well as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. In the afternoon we take everyone out in the field to practice the new skills they learned in the morning. I’ll be leading a group in the afternoon. We will be learning how to use the basics like aperture, shutter speed and focal length creatively. Other groups in the another will be working with video, macro photography and other skills.

Registration starts at 8:30 am, Saturday, September 18. The morning seminars are at Burke Auditorium at Saint Mary’s University. Everyone is welcome and admission is $40 for a full day of workshops.
