PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES

Basic Photography course offered at DSLCC Rockbridge Center

A four-week basic photography course, “The Nuts & Bolts of Digital Photography,” will be held at the Dabney S Lancaster Community College Rockbridge Regional Center, Room 906, on Wednesdays, Feb. 11 through Mar. 4, from 6 to 9 p.m.

The instructor is noted professional photographer Chuck Almarez, who owns and operates a studio in Clifton Forge, “Fire and Light Gallery.”

“This four-week course will cover basic photography from the perspective of a digital camera,” says Almarez. “Students will learn how their camera works, what all the buttons, switches, and menus do, how to take a better quality image, and how to best share that image online with family and friends.”

This course is Part One of a two-part series. Part Two of the course continues with more advanced topics and students will have the opportunity to register and pay for the second part at a later time. The tuition fees for Part One and Part Two will be $72 each.

For more information about the course, contact Almarez at fireandlight@ntelos.net. To register, contact DSLCC Workforce Solutions and Community Education Programs Coordinator Doug Jones at 540-863-2870 or djones@dslcc.edu. The RRC is located at 35 Vista Links Drive, Buena Vista, VA.

 

 

Close-Up Photography offered at DSLCC

A two-night workshop on close-up photography, “Macro Photography,” will be held on Thursdays, Mar. 5 and 12, from 6 to 9 p.m. in Room 504, McCarthy Hall, on the Dabney S Lancaster Community College Clifton Forge campus with noted professional photographer Chuck Almarez as the instructor. The tuition fee is $36 for the non-credit course, and enrollment is limited to ten students.

The workshop will introduce students to special close-up photography tools and lighting techniques as they explore a new way of seeing and capturing images, says Almarez.

“Macro photography provides a view of our world that is always there but is seldom seen,” says Almarez. “Even the most basic digital cameras have a Macro setting that will let you focus to within inches of your subject. Extreme close-up views of flowers, insects, or just everyday objects can transform the ordinary into art.”

Almarez is also teaching another non-credit workshop, “Landscape and Night Photography,” on Thursdays, Feb. 12, 19 and 26, from 6 to 9 p.m., in Room 504, McCarthy Hall.

For more information about the course, contact Almarez at fireandlight@ntelos.net; to register for either course, contact DSLCC Programs Coordinator Doug Jones at 540-863-2870 or djones@dslcc.edu.

 

Landscape Photography offered at DSLCC

“Landscape & Night Photography,” a three-week workshop offered by the Dabney S Lancaster Community College Non-Credit Program, will be taught on Thursdays, Feb. 12, 19 and 26, from 6 to 9 p.m., in Room 504, McCarthy Hall, on the DSLCC Clifton Forge campus.

Noted professional photographer Chuck Almarez, who owns and operates “Fire and Light Gallery” in Clifton Forge, is the instructor.

“This three week workshop will introduce students to techniques for effective landscape photography, including creating panoramas and 3-D images,” explains Almarez. “As the sun goes down students will get a good understanding of exposure while shooting at dusk. After dark, we will be using starlight and moonlight as well as painting with light, using portable strobes and portable lighting.”

A camera with manual mode and a tripod are strongly recommended. Enrollment is limited to 10 students. The tuition fee is $54.
