Photography Workshop at the Ford House

October 21, 2017 @ 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Edsel Ford was an avid photographer, and his lakeside home makes for a stunning backdrop to share his passion!
This class is for beginning to intermediate adult photographers with some experience, looking for instruction on the details.
Learn from photographer Ted Fines about the digital camera, lens, memory card, ISO, aperture and shutter speed, how to read the landscape and selecting that perfect viewpoint.
This event will be offered on two dates: Oct. 21 and Nov. 11.
Attendees must bring their own cameras and equipment.

The instructor recommends the following equipment to bring along:

1) Camera Body: Get to know your camera before the workshop. Go out and shoot. Work through the modes and menus. 

2) Lenses: A basic three-zoom lens will serve you well for most shooting. A macro lens is always a good choice. 

3) Filters

4) Tripod: A tripod allows a photographer to get tack-sharp pictures. If you don’t have a tripod, then we’ll share!

5) Flash: You’ll be amazed at how much a little fill light can add to some photographs. These items are small and light, and they make a big difference. If you don’t have a separate flash, the “pop-up” flash will be enough.

6) Laptop: If you plan to bring a laptop, make sure it’s loaded with all the software you’ll need. 

7) Other items include: chargers, a card reader, your camera manual, a flashlight, snacks, bug spray, sunscreen and an umbrella. Check the weather report and dress accordingly.

This workshop will take you around the Ford House grounds. In case of inclement weather a make-up date will be offered.
