Outside presenter: Jim Christensen - Compositing Expand your Creative Space
http://jimchristensenphotography.com
Do you consider the time you spend in the digital darkroom creative time? Jim will tell you how to expand the images that you can imagine and create in the digital darkroom using a technique called compositing. It lets you mix your imagination with your digital captures to create images that communicate your vision more powerfully. He'll show you examples of several different kinds of compositing, teach you the best ways to make composite images using Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, and have some fun along the way.

Photo Excursion to Wadsworth Big Falls in Middlefield CT
Bill Payne and John Straub will be hosting a trip to Wadsworth Big Falls in Middlefield CT. The goal of the trip will be to teach creative photo methodology at one of New England's highest volume undammed waterfalls. Cameras will be set to manual as we study depth of field, variable blurring of fast and slow-moving water, exposure (neutral density filters optional), composition and best procedures for setting up your tripod and camera. This falls earns its relatively high rating simply because you do not expect to find such a commanding waterfall in the heart of Connecticut. The currents of this river are astonishing given its location. Come and join the fun.
