Workshop: A Photographic Walk Through Time
The Historical Society of Cheshire County and fotoedu.org have teamed up to offer the public an opportunity to learn techniques for photographing architecture while studying local history. The full day workshop will include morning presentations of photography techniques including a brief overview of high dynamic range photography. The focus will be on black & white images and compositional approaches to architecture. The fascinating history of Keene will be highlighted by viewing period photographs of Keene houses and buildings selected from the Historical Society of Cheshire County’s vast collection of images. Additionally, there will be a brief look into the history of camera technology available to photographers at the time these historical images were captured.
An afternoon walking tour in Keene will combine the historical and photographic components with the class photographing selected homes and buildings along Main St. in Keene. Selected student images may be donated to the Historical Society of Cheshire County.
Familiarity with camera operation is suggested but all levels of photo experience are encouraged to attend. Morning snacks and beverages will be available. Lunch is on your own.
Registration is required. Deadline for registration is May 31st. The workshop fee is $60 per person.
