A unique outdoor photography workshop for women photographers has been scheduled for Sept. 15-18, 2016, near Mountain Home, Arkansas. The event, offered as part of the annual Women Artist Retreat sponsored by the Ozark Regional Arts Council, will be based at Stone Creek Ranch. “This workshop will focus on using digital cameras to capture the many characteristics of nature in an artistic manner,” said workshop leader Bill Barksdale. “We will explore ways of using aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings to achieve specific effects,” Barksdale adds. “And we will discuss the importance of white balance, use of histogram, and how various camera modes can be used to best advantage.” Participants will work on landscapes, waterscapes, close-ups, and nature abstracts. Sessions will begin before sunrise and extend into the post sunset hours. Any type of camera is acceptable, but those who bring DSLR’s or interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras will benefit most. No smartphones. Tripods required. Participants must already know how to operate their cameras. For further workshop details, contact Debby Lively at: [email protected] or phone 870 425-8291.
