Photography Class


More of my readers need to send in photographs taken at the Reservoir (email them to me at usmjacksonalum@yahoo.com).  In an effort to encourage y'all to do that, above, I post some inspiration, and below, an email received from the Mississippi Wildlife Federation:


April 6, 2013
Mississippi Museum of Natural Science
Lower Classroom
9 a.m.—2 p.m.
$90 per person plus $6 gate admission


This session kicks off with a dramatic photographic presentation that sets the stage for an exciting, fun-filled day of creative exploration.
The indoor workshop covers the creative basics of outdoor/nature photography, including the use of tools like lenses, extension tubes, and filters; creative variables like composition, exposure, and contrast; and balancing natural and artificial light. You’ll acquire a new perspective on the art of photography that will both prepare you and free you to create exciting and moving images.

Learn how to take a shot from average to award-winning through the use of different lenses, compositions, or lighting, or by simply waiting five minutes or moving five inches. All instruction in this session is illustrated with nature and wildlife shots that demonstrate the dramatic difference a few creative choices can make in an image.

Along with these things you will also get several photo assignments from Mr. Kirkpatrick that will help you “see” differently and challenge your creative vision. These assignments will stretch your
photographic skills and help you find new approaches to solve a photographic “creative block.”

Registration for the "Nature Exposed"
Workshop fee is $90 per person and gate admission is $6. Please bring your own sack lunch or you may purchase food from the vendors at the Museum. Pizza, hamburgers, ice cream and drinks will be available. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Please call (601) 605-1790 for more information.
