Digital Photography with Your DSLR (Part 2 – In-Person)

Digital Photography with Your DSLR (Part 2 – In-Person)

Do you have a DSLR that is still in the box because the idea of using it is intimidating? Or would you like to get away from shooting in automatic modes and learn more about the capabilities of your camera? Or maybe it’s been a while since you’ve used your DSLR, and you could use a refresher. This program will help you to become more comfortable navigating the settings of your DSLR camera so you can have more creative control of the images you make.
 
This is a two-part program. The first session will take place Wed., Sept. 22 on Zoom. The second session will take place in-person at the same time on Wed., Sept. 29. We will meet on the patio of the library (outside the Putnam Street entrance) and walk to Congress Park.
 
In the case of inclement weather, the in-person session will take place on Thurs., Sept. 30 from 11 AM-12:30 PM.
 
Registration is required through the library’s website. If you don’t see the program on the library’s calendar, check back soon!
 
This program is offered through Zoom videoconferencing. Three hours in advance of each class, we will send an email to you containing an invitation and link to join the Zoom meeting.

Mindful Photography in Nature (Part 2)

Mindful Photography in Nature (Part 2)

Mindful nature photography is about much more than just seeing and creating pleasing images. It’s about how you relate to the present moment. Your camera becomes a tool to expand your awareness of the present moment. Mindful photography can enrich your life by cultivating: focus, presence, patience, beginner’s mind (seeing something as if for the first time), seeing beyond forms, and heart qualities such as caring, connection, and gratitude.

This program will take a contemplative, relaxed, present approach and will focus more on process than end result. (It’s not a “technique” class.). It will open you up to new ways of seeing and being present in the natural world with your camera. 

There are two parts to this program. The first will take place on Zoom (Wed., 8/18), and the second will take place in-person at Hudson Crossing Park (Fri., 8/20). The Zoom session will offer an understanding of mindful photography in nature, and the in-person session will consist of guided practices.

The instructor, Susan Meyer, is both a professionally trained and certified mindfulness meditation teacher and an award-winning nature photographer.

Registration is required, through the library’s website. The Zoom link will be emailed to you after you register.
