The Roxbury Arts Group Popular Drop In Art Class Series Continues With A Photography Workshop
At the Roxbury Arts Center – 5025 Vega Mountain Rd., Roxbury NY 12474
Saturday, May 17, 2014, 11:30 AM
The popular Drop In Art Class Series offered by the Roxbury Arts Group continues on Saturday, May 17th with a photography workshop led by artist Kevin Q. Gray.
This month’s workshop, Digital Camera: The Basics, will lead participants through all of the basic (and not so basic) functions of today’s digital cameras. Shutter speeds, apertures, ISO, file formats, lenses, filters and much more will be discussed. Gray will talk on compositional skills, making sure that what the participant envisions in their mind is what comes true through the camera lens. The workshop will include an outdoor ‘photo safari’ in Roxbury (weather permitting) and a brief discussion of photo editing software.
This workshop is best suited to those participants who own a digital SLR camera with interchangeable lenses, or an advanced point-and-shoot camera with manual shutter and aperture modes.
Workshop instructor, Kevin Q. Gray, is a fine art photographer living in Cherry Valley, NY. He has exhibited his work widely in the region, including in the Walt Meade Gallery of the Roxbury Arts Center. He has won numerous awards for his digital, film, and alternative process photography. He currently teaches photography at SUNY Oneonta.
The workshop takes place at the Roxbury Arts Center, 5025 Vega Mountain Road in Roxbury NY. The workshop feel is $30 per person for this 2.5 hour workshop. For more information visit www.roxburyartsgroup.org or call 607.326.7908.
