Photography Workshops for 2016

On a recent winter morning the instructors at Photographers Connection got together to plan out our photography workshops for the upcoming year. Armed with coffee, calendars and YOUR input we put our heads together and found that you all had some kick ass ideas! Based on your requests, and your feedback on last years programs we put together a series of photography workshops designed to help YOU to be a better photographer!

So what are we going to do? Lots of hands on photography workshops that consist of excursions and lots of image reviews! Workshop sizes are going to be kept small. In most cases our class size is going to be limited to no more then 6 photographers. Limited class size for maximum value! Our staffing allows us to have at least 2 instructors per class so you will get plenty of one-on-one attention!

One of the things we discussed at length was the incredible growth that we are seeing in our photographers. Many of you have come back and taken multiple programs with us, and we have been truly honored to get to work with and teach so many talented photographers. Showcasing your achievements is something the Photographers Connections is going to be doing more of in the upcoming months, and we can’t wait to share. Stay tuned for some upcoming announcements on this front soon!

Individual Instruction

At the Photographers Connection we understand that working one-on-one with an instructor can be very beneficial. In addition to our photography workshops, our instructors all often individual instruction. With expertise in a wide variety of genres, our instructors can help you no matter what your current skill level is!

Thank You!

Most importantly, thank YOU! Thank you for all of your support and encouragement in 2015. Our workshops were an amazing success, and that could not have happened with out all of our amazing photographers! We look forward to 2016 and another exciting year of working with you, making new friends, and sharing our passion for the craft and art of photography!

Bob, Mike, Don and Laura

  1. Experienced ‘old school’ photographer trained in the US Navy. Need knowledge in translating the old ASA standards to digital

  2. Paul, ASA was a number to designate the “speed” of the films sensitivity to light. In most instances the higher the ASA the more silver in the emulsion the less light needed to expose it, but it also incurred grain.

    With digital the numbers are the same, 100, 200, 400 etc, with the higher the number the less light you need for a correct exposure. In addition most all cameras are able to change the now used designation “ISO” in thirds, for example ISO 100, 125, 180, 200, 250 and so forth. The ISO also becomes a part of the exposure triangle of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO to achieve a proper exposure, and seeing the results via the histogram in the camera review. Most cameras go to at least ISO 3200 and some much higher. Hope this gives you a starting point.

  3. Paul – this is a great program that I think you will enjoy. Let us know how we can help you become digital or film ready.

  4. Paul Pichette .. I can attest to the value the Bob, Mike, Don, and Laura bring to the table. Would love to see you at one or more of the programs in 2016!
